Already established as the most successful of the new one-design classes in Britain, the Sonata has had a growth rate which would be the envy of some dinghy classes. She is well built, well finished and is really a true little cruising yacht in many ways. She is fun to sail yet seaworthy enough for short cruises. As the Sonata has already shown herself capable of out-sailing larger boats, she is worth racing in handicap events where there is no one-design class.
There are now around 300 Sonatas sailing around the world, all built by Hunter Boats. Why does the Sonata have such appeal? The answer is probably that she is simple and straightforward, but nevertheless a good performer.
