I have a '93 Privilege
P-43 (Hull #9), three stateroom "Owner's Version" purchased in early 1995. Have replaced original 38hp Yanmar
3JH with (naturally aspirated) 56hp 4JH3E with ZF drives. Extended hulls 4ft which improved bouyancy, increased speed and decreased sqatting (with no apparent changes in handling or steering). Added hard bimini
and over the years upgraded electronics
. Very high quality workmanship and exceptional rigging
and mechanical accoutrements with bulletproof kevlar hull
construction (4ft draft
with mini-keels, not dagger boards). Average cruising speed under power is 10-12 kts. Have reached 14-15 under sail, 25kts apparent, beam reach. Have logged about 20kNM to date. Wife and I always attend the new boat shows to see what's new and consistently agree that what we have doesn't justify replacement.
One cat owner's opinion. Good luck.
