Hi. We bought a 400 a couple of months back up on the inner Clyde so we're also new to Trappers. The yacht (Querida) was owned by a boat builder & the survey reflected that. They seem to be very well built boats. The engine is the original direct drive dolphin without a gearbox & took a little getting used to. I'm actually starting to quite like it though as being petrol there's loads of instant power in it and it is extremely reliable. (touch wood). So far for us she appears to sail very easily. She's very light and easy to manouvre. I was suprised & very pleased to feel how quick she picks up speed. So far we've managed to reach just over 6 knots in her with about 12 kt winds. We really are just novices so I'm sure in "trained" hands she's quite capable of a bit more. The only downside I've come across is as people have suggested the lack of head room. But then again how much time do you spend in the saloon when your sailing.
