They were based near the "try me" section, to the left of the motor yachts

I did not go down there because the strong winds meant that all the "try me" outings were cancelled

That's a pity. I would like to have seen them. What did you think of them? Are you a monohull man or have you been converted to a catamaran?

Im a mono but my partner is a catwoman!

I did really like the Prout (sp?) and loved the window in each hull that was just above the water line on the inside of the hull, it was so relaxing just to watch whilst Trisha explored the rest of the hull.

The others seemed downmarket to the Prout and I'm afraid I didnt notice the model number but it was a new model and 40 foot if that helps? The tramp seemed a little taught though but I put that down to being new and figured it would stretch slightly after general use.
