I am sure you will have a great time on both, the price difference is about right to me.

Quick question, what is the general area you are going too? And how freindly are you with the other couples?


Either will work for you but the 450 will have a lot more space.

I own both a L412 and L450, I assume both are 4 cabin versions. 4 couples will fit on the 420 very nicely, in fact the forward cabins on the L420 are in my opinion more roomy than on the L450 although the beds are a bit higher and mounted East West. The L450 wins hands down with the aft cockpit space, also sunbeds in front of the fly bridge. More lounging space on the forward deck area on the L450 as well.

If your cruising area offers a lot of opportunity for off boat eating and drinking then I would go L420 and each couple has an extra 1000 euro to spend. If you will be predominantly on-board for the whole charter go the extra entertainment room of the L450. Either way you will have a lot of fun.

Are all your buddies sailors? Why I ask? Greek winds. They can be powerful... can come in the middle of the night while on a quay. That has nothing to do about which boat to select. But believe me... your buddies should have some competence in midnight madness anchoring fiascos.

We were sailing out of Volos on a 50+ foot Sunsail. Tied stern to the quay on one of islands east of Volos. Like a tempest in a teacup. Boats anchored in channel off quay dragged and snarled everyone's rode. There were more naked men up on deck than u ever wanted to see. Some women in panties and bra. What an hour. Just be aware of how much boat these big cats are to deal with. We all raced together for years. A large cat... the physics are incredible. Many new cat owners who've converted or new to large cats will tell u about how scared poopless the physics can get. Put that aside... one of the best sailing vacations of my life. Have fun.

I sailed the Cyclades for three weeks during the meltemi. Regarding which cat....take the one with the most tankage for water. Fresh water can be difficult to come by in that region, and....it can be expensive. If there is no difference in tankage, go with the larger vessel. You'll have much more space.

very good point that many (including me) forgot to address, compare the equipment of both cats ! A watermaker makes a very big difference indeed !

I did not notice that the 450 is a sportop version. If both cats have the same equipments I would then choose the L420.
