Re: The new 47

Tagging along. I rec'd the pricing yesterday and agree the options read like War and Peace. Looking forward to Annapolis.

To some it makes this boat even more desirable...! The more one pays, the more it values to him/her, a psychological effect. In some minds, expensive is synonym to quality.

Re: The new 47

This is actually a really really nice boat, sitting right within my financial capacities. Yes, in the end all the options I craved for ended up making this vessel 200.000 more expensive, but somehow, to me, worth it.

Anybody else who's really charmed by this new cat?

Re: The new 47

Anyone looked at the displacement and SA?
She is fatty, will not sail in light winds, just as a Lagoon.
Good tendency, my Salina looks light and quick compared to these new offerings. And cheaper as well

I'm still very early in the sailing learning curve as most of my experience has been old Chris Craft cabin cruisers on the Great Lakes, but I like what I've seen so far on the 47 and am willing to surrender some light air/pointing performance for live-aboard creature comforts (family aboard including a disabled Daughter.)

As I assume it is with most; safety is the top concern. From the perspective of an admitted novice, I'll give up some speed, light wind and pointing performance as long as the vessel is blue-water built, has sufficient load-carrying capacity to operate within design specs and enough engine and fuel capacity to compensate for; and assist with poor wind/sea state conditions.

Looking forward to the adventure

I am seriously looking at the New 47! Working with a dealer now and have settled on Std Davit package. I have a feeling that either hydraulic [davit or platform] option will make her stern really heavy and less maneuverable. With my preferred options the price is very reasonable and I am spec'ing a Quintet. Delivery looks to be in January '18 at this point.

Congratulations! I'm a bit jalous!
