My wife and I crawled all over the 54DS at the Annapolis boat show
last October. VERY nice boat! The overall fit and finish is fantastic and the systems installations are very well thought out. Some of the means of accessing stuff for maintenance
is creative and effective, clearly lots of engineering thought went into it.
The lack of hand holds and such inside was a bit glaring but that could be added.
Everything I have read says they sure sail nice and are robust enough for long range cruising if thats what you want. They also seem very well priced for what they offer. I wish I could afford one!
