51: agreed the engine
access from the bedroom looks like a poor design choice. Appart from the noise
when running, imagine the smell if any issues with leaks
or even while performing regular maintenance
... Also I hate that for a 51ft there is not a dedicated helm
Sunreef: Interiors look really impractical. They are also more expensive than any other brand.
Horizon: Good reputation for quality, not cheap
. Also range seems quite limited. Again, no dedicated helm
Aquila: I believe they have Volvo
IPS drive...that is a no-go for many people.
Did you had a look at the Fountaine Pajot
Powercats? The Cumberland 47 and Queensland
55 ? They have pretty much all the features you're looking for.
Also Bali Catamarans have launched a 4.3. Many complain about esthetic quality, cannot comment on the rest.
Also look for Nautitech (Bavaria) They have a section on their website for a Nautitech 46 Power...so I guess you can expect it in 1-2 years.
