    Just to add on the long keel reversing, my mate has a twister 28, and the mechanic at Ardfern reveresed it out of our pontoon berth for us under power and sailed it backwards to the fuel dock, swerving in and pulling up perfectly alongside, all in reverse. It was bloody impressive, and showed me that, though it might be difficult, it can certainly be done if practiced.

    I wouldn't discount other makes/models either, these are worth a look:

    Jaguar 27

    Mirage 28

    Both re-engined & under £5k, look like they could be significantly better than a lot of the boats around at similar prices...

    not sure either the Jag or the Mirage would make such good boats at the "sailing" bit - I had a jag 27 donkey's years ago - the sadlers sail so much better and are much more balanced on the helm. can't comment about the Vega

    I think either is a good choice for the sort of sailing suggested

    With so may Vegas built it is not surprising that there have been so many views. Nevertheless, it is a sound boat, and probably a bit more 'snug' than the Sadler.
    Far away is near at hand in images of elsewhere

    Our Vega is very well balanced, and will sail herself to windward with no hand on the tiller.
