Great, are u able to tell us a bit more? What you like about it, any things you dont? Or is it a secret ? Maybe why you would choose a Hylas over a Valiant?

by the way, not heard anything regarding the northwind? Its a Catalan boatyard out of Barcelona, maybe they are more popular with the Spanish market? Looks a really well built boat!

No one commenting about the Northwind? There is a super cool Northwind 43 in Lauderdale, S&S design. I loved the boat but don't know of the 40. Biggest drawback I saw was the 220V system which can be a bummer in the USA.
