Broadblue 385 - what's great about it and what's not so great

Hi there, we're researching the Broadblue 385 and looking to find out what owners of these catamarans love about them, what isn't so good, and anything people who are thinking of buying one should take into account with regards to issues that might come up in a service etc.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Broadblue 385 - what's great about it and what's not so great

Take a look at Troutbridge's ( Broadblue 385 ) blog... 'Sarf & West mate, Sarf & West' - Pete Bernfeld Pete has had a bit of a nightmare over the last couple of years after running aground in Fiji so there is not much detail about the boat these days, but, the early days of his blog should give you a real insight into the boat. I met Pete in the early months of his circumnavigation and, from what I remember, he was pretty happy with the boat.
