Franchini Yachts

First posting, so please don't bite!!!
Franchini 41s, 43L, 45L yachts all seem to be a very viable liveaboard option from their layout, displacement sail plan etc.....
Plan is for my wife and I to cruise full time in the tropics with occasional long ocean passage.
Information or reviews are rare as hens teeth.
Does anyone own one of these beauties, or has anyone taken a passage on one?
I am interested in sea manners, handling for short handed crew of 2, build quality and why there is a lack of info on them.
I have even searched this forum, but nothing. If there is can I be pointed in the right direction please and accept my apologies for not searching correctly.
Thanks in advance

Re: Franchini Yachts

Hi, I had sailing for a trip with a friend many years ago from Sicily to Palma de Maiorca with a 53L and after only for a day with a 47L.
Generally spoken the Franchini are good boats, well build, strong, beautiful interiors, easy to handle in little crew.
41 was the first of the 3 discontinued many many years ago, in my opinion better the 43 or 45.
The shipyard had many economic problems in his life and in the 2008 the economic crisis killed him.
The founder work now with here society for project, consulting and brokerage.
