    The Luders 33 is an outstanding blue water vessel. When others are hove to or running for cover, the Luders is still in stride. The low aspect ratio main allows full sail to be maintained in much higher winds than high aspect rigs. Handling, even in heavy seas, is a joy. She simply has no bad habits! This boat is currently outfitted for off-shore sailing and regularly ventures forth into the Gulf and beyond.
