Many thanks for your responses, much appreciated! From a cost perspective, we have decided that a 44ft as opposed to a 49ft boat is the way to go.
Its basically come down to either a Sun Odyssey 44i or a Bavaria
45 Cruiser. The boats seem quite similar in specification. Would anyone recommend the one over the other or is there not much of a difference.
does have a substantially smaller water
tank 350lt (versus the Sun Odyssey's 615lt). Is this something to take into consideration given we will probably be doing a mix of marinas and moorings (hopefully more moorings) and there will be 7 onboard?
