Hi and welcome.
No, a center cockpit
won't give you the 'flybridge feeling' as they're usually at the same level that you'd expect an aft cockpit
to be. You still need to be under the boom after all. The main advantage with a CC is you will get far better headroom
in the aft master cabin
. Another thing that springs to mind is that it will be a bit more comfortable at sea due to you not having so much pitching action, being nearer the center of the boat and safety
would be better as you can't fall off the back on a CC boat.
The only disadvantage I can think of is you wont have a walk through transom/bathing platform, which is a fasionable feature on modern boats and if you go anywhere that it's common to more up 'stern too', like here in the Med', then you're a bit further away from the rear cleats
