Review of Elizabeth Ann by Rich Hoyer

Those looking for a small family cruiser should take a hard look at the Sea Sprite 34. Built in Rhode Island in the early 1980s, the Sea Sprite sports a full keel, generous interior space and an excellent cockpit for a boat of this size.
I recently had the opportunity to help a friend deliver his 1983 Sea Sprite back to Annapolis from Rock Hall and I found the boat to be a delight. She had been repowered since new with a smooth running Yanmar and cruised easily in the low 6s under power. With a light to moderate breeze right on the nose, we motored until we cleared the Bay Bridge while cleaning up the boat from its winter slumbers and bending on the jib. The solidity of the Sea Sprite’s construction is radiated by every experience with the boat – from the solid foot falls on the thick cabin sole to the visual impression left by the beefy bronze portholes. They look solid and over-built enough to have been brought up from the depths of a hundred year-old wreck site – and I say that in the most flattering context. No one builds boats like this any more.
Once we cleared the bridge we bent on the main, rolled out the jib and bore off to do some close-hauled sailing before reaching down toward Annapolis. Since the owner of this example had already shared with me his criteria for buying the boat, I pretty much knew what to expect as I got a feel for her helm under sail.
He planned to do only local day sailing and weekend cruises on the Chesapeake, so he was much more concerned with how pleasant the boat was to sail (what I call sailing dynamics) than how fast it covered sailing miles (what I refer to as performance). For those with similar criteria, the Sea Sprite is an excellent choice. An ear-to-ear grin formed on my face the instant the diesel was shut down and she settled into her grove. True to prediction, a comparatively heavy full-keel boat won’t be a speedster but she had more than enough pace to entertain while sailing upwind in 15 knots of apparent wind and her dynamics were delightful.
