I saw the one in Miami
. I too had been looking forward to seeing this boat with a promise of good speed and cruising comfort at a reasonable price
. I spent about two hours going over everything. Couple of takeaways that resulted in this boat coming off my list.
1. It feels very tender
. On the dock
as people moved around the boat it reacted to every movement. Felt more like a J 22 than a 45 foot cat
2. The saloon
is very cramped. I get they want to have weight more centralized but the impact is on the living space in the saloon
3. Hulls felt very narrow down below with the daggerboards
4. I think this was hull
number three, and it was not fully finished, but poking into some of the spaces the work looked pretty rough.
I know with time they will improve the build, for me the living space and the tender
feeling put me off. I would need to be convinced this yacht could put up with the rigors of crossing major oceans.
