I spoke with the U.S.rep about the boat going to the Oakland show. At the end of last week it was holed up in Morro Bay waiting for a break in the weather
. When you get to the show ask for Phil Berman, tell him Bryan Weaver recommended him. We have been talking on the phone
a bit lately.
I've seen the Dolphin 460 at the Miami
show and liked it, but that does not say much since I only know the boat from walking around on it for 20 minutes, Although it is out of my budget
, it seems to be a very good value for the money
. It has daggerboards, a separate nav/map/computer room in one hull
which I thought was a good way to centralize things. It also has some single
bunk beds, which I had not seen before, not really private, but it does offer something other than sleeping on the saloon
I think it has teak
decks, which to me would seem like another thing to have to maintain. Fit and finish were good, and much of it real wood instead of plastic.
roofline seems like a cross between a Lagoon
and a FP, the windows are vertical, but it does not seem as blunt as a Lagoon
Not much else. Sorry, no real info here.
