Well one of the reasons I want such a boat is hull
thickness, this is 1" at least, any other 34ft model with enough headroom that I can buy has a lot less.
Another reason is most boats in the 34ft range with enough headroom have a flatter underwater body, they don´t sail upwind with waves as well as they pound much more.
Because they are lighter, beamier and flatter in the underbody the roll acceleration, very related to seasickness, is much worse. The P341 does 0´10 G´s compared to 0.15-0.20 G´s of boats with more headroom.
A classic 40 ft is out of consideration because of marina and maintenance
Why is just raising only 2" so difficult if well done? We´re in 2016!
