wow....yeloya already hit the nail on the head
, this boat must have a truly disastrous hull
length to beam ratio, coupled with what seems to be a very average sail/displacement setup. I also doubt most of them will come in at 15.7mt once fully optioned up and with the almost 1 ton of diesel
on board. By the current
numbers this is going to be one hell of a 'stubborn' sailboat. Comfy though! The good old bahia
must be turning in its 'grave'. They make sense for FP though I guess from a $$ perspective of course. But more and more of these types of boats in the market place will keep strengthening the real world value of good sailing cats, and it will become harder and harder to get into a well built, good performing boat from an availability and $$ perspective (eg: the values of 12-14 year old 471's...)....the mantra going forward will increasingly be, if you have a well built, well rounded cat with decent performance at sea and a comfy living situation, keep it!!!
