Leopard 45 Should I wait?

Hello Everyone

We are wanting to get into a Leopard 44 in near future and have been searching the world over for the perfect one to no avail so far.

Being new to this world,,I have one big question? Should I wait for the NEW 45? I worry that like everything else that the first ones off the production lines, that they are the testing stage for the new changes and no way to know if the end is really good upgrade or not.

Is it best to buy a 44 a year or 2 old that has been proven and tested or wait to get the brand new version with lots of new concepts that are unproven over time?

Any help is greatly appreciated,and if anyone knows of a late model 44 with light interior, full mast height, low hours, never chartered, please mail me
paufuntimecandy at gmail

Cheers
Paul

What is the price difference between a new 45 and a two year old 44?
