Is there a FP 42 Venezia around Ft. Lauderdale?

Hello-
I was looking to purchase a multihull to buy. Fell in love with the FP 46 Bahia, but my wallet didn't. I've downsized my dreams a bit, and the FP Venezia seems to fit the bill. Trouble is I can't seem to find any nearby. I am tall and headroom seems to usually be a problem. If anybody has one around here (not neccesarily for sale) and would be gracious enough to let me poke around a little bit, I would be most appreciative.
Thank you

Pretty long trip from Ft. Lauderdale, but yachtworld reports one for sale in Key West - cool place to visit even if the boat doesn't pan out:

Yes, I know about that one. Kind of a long trip. 3 1/2 hours each way. Was hoping to find something a little closer. But thanks

Funny thing about FP is the Bahia is generally about the same price as Belize and Venezza.

on the used market its more like a $100,000 difference. I was at the boat show">Miami boat show. The Orana 44 was listed at $450,000 (boat show special), but the salesman said there was a Bahia (the last one built) still sitting in the yard. The price of that one is the same as the Orana.

Ya, I know. I've been pitched that Bahia also. But the point is that if you pull up Venezia's, Belize's, and Bahia's on yachtworld, the prices are not $100k different for the same model years.

Keep in touch, I'm interested in how your search goes. I looked at a 10+ yr old Bahia in ft lauderdale which was trashed. Asking price was $300k. I don't think I'd pay anymore then $125k for it as a total refit is required. I also saw a Belize, sweet boat. Owners version and had been really taken care of. The perfect boat for me would actually be a Bahia with only two heads. I could use the extra space for an office or real working nav station. Good luck.

I saw that bahia too. My broker advised me against even lowhballing him...delamination issue. Seems like we would both like the same kind of boat. Bahia Maestro is pretty close. Although I saw a conversion on a website for a Venezia where they used an aft stateroom and converted it into an office. I'd sure like to see if I "fit" onto a venezia though before I travel long and far. I'll let you know if anything comes up
