On balance its offers good turn of speed, good downhill dynamics , good pointing etc as long as you reset the traditional thinking a bit
Thats right Dave. I am used to this kind of hull and its compromises suit me fine. Which makes it a good choice for me but maybe not everyone.
Mark. The huge lazarett is great to have. I want to fully self sufficient for diving
. I did not like the master birth in the 473 being up the front. I prefer it in the back. I would not be that worried about the 2 or 3 cabin
version personally. Each have their benefits. We plan to live in this for over 5 years and kids
might be involved, which would make the 3 cabins usual negatives become a positive. Plus even if we don't have visitors/kids one of the cabins can become a great workshop/storage room and wet locker.
Will we get insurance
for double handed sailing with this boat?
