Sadly there are none nearby me. I live near Washington DC
. But from my frequent scanning the various catamaran
"for sale" websites, it seems as though these are some of the least expensive 46" I can get into. IE., they're the highest ratio of length/price.
I've read several discussions about the various manufacturers (eg., Leopard
, FP, Lagoon
, Outreamer, etc). So I have a sense of the various consensuses on different metrics (eg., interior
space, speed, contemporary design, etc).
All that being said, I also get the impression from poking around that the Bahia
was one of the better models produced by FP. They're an older design now, some stretching back more than 10 years. One is even advertised as being made of "old school
heavy duty fiberglass" as such.
While I try to find a way to get aboard one, I thought I'd see if it's even worth the bother. Are they more solid than average? Osmosis
How much space is there on a Bahia
46 as say compared to an Orana
41? Lagoon 380
It seems as though the newer designs have found ways to make things feel less cramped?
