Rolling depends of the type of keel. Long keel, normaly in older models until 199? have this keel. It’s not bad, rolls without wind or without sails but sailongs is like a train cuting waves. Nauticat 33 MkII (maybe 1991) has a mix between fin keel and long keel, sails better using wind and rolls less, but rolls more than a modern sailboat with a 2m fin keel. Maybe in Malta is more important the aft cockpit than the rolling. Imegine you mooring from inside the cabin.
I have a 1993 Nauticat 33 also in the Mediterranean sea.
