G-whizz came out of the factory with the performance (which includes the deeper 2.1 metre composite iron/lead keel) and Cruising packs (Lots of stuff like hot and cold running water – even to the stern shower), together which make her quite a spirited but comfy performer. The upgraded primary winches and a mainsheet system off the larger Elan 37 make her a bit lighter on the controls. Though I would hate to have to use the standard winches and/or mainsheet as even these upgraded systems can be pretty heavy in stronger winds.
She also has had a Seldon extendable bow sprit fitted (I believe that this may have become a factory option later in the production run) which makes the use of the Asymmetric spinnaker quite practical. She also carries a 4 metre pole for use with the Symmetrical spinnaker at squarer points of Sail.

One option that as far as I can determine is about the only box that was not ticked on the option sheet, is auto helm! One day one just may find its way on board.
