Due to the wide deep hull and tons of deck space, the Cape Horn 19 is an offshore boat that fits better in the 21 - 22 class of boats. Even with it's huge dimensions, it will still perform. Its high strength/deep-V hull is made to handle anything thrown at it. Its soft ride is comparable to boats larger and heavier.
Like the 17, the Cape Horn 19 has no rivals in it's class.
