Among many benefits of the Romany is that there are many around and you can pick-up a used composite Romany for less than a new poly boat.

I've played in dozens of boats and few are as much fun as a Romany. I've put more different people in my Romany and seen them smile broadly as they get the feel of the boat.

There are better all round boats (e.g. Tempest 165). There are sexier boats (e.g. Nordkapp LV). There are currently more faddish boats (Delphin, Gemini, etc...). But there are few that are as supportive of skills development and ease of handling in an array of sea conditions.

You will not outgrow a Romany. Do not even consider the poly version.

Find a Romany, try it see how it feels to you. If comfortable get one.
