Since we bought our Stuart we have towed her from Fort Lauderdale through pretty rough head seas to the Virgins & she towed well without tracking back and forth or hobby horsing. We had heard stories of other yacht tenders on tow getting pretty beat up after making the same trip and we were very pleased that the Stuart was completely intact and in perfect working order once the passage was complete.
In addition to making the trip safely, we have run the boat on day excursions in rough waters and she is a stable, smooth, easy to manage boat with excellent handling, and, she looks good too. We get many compliments from other tender owners. Our guests, including the ladies, comment on the comfort of the ride & soft entry in heavy sea conditions.
We also really like the great light package that the Stuart Boatworks team recommended for us. That was spot on advice.
Thanks very much for a great product.
