Most don't have the time. The same can be said regarding mono-hulls and there is very few built by the owners for the same reasons.
you have to consider that the Dragonfly 35 has a very high quality, comfortable interior that you would not be able to get unless you resource to professionals. Of course you can dispense that type of comfort but for comparison purposes you have to compare what is comparable and that means a boat with a similar quality interior.
Look at the end of the movie
Tks, Polux, Yr comments I fully agree with.
Owning a mono since 2000 and sailing a catamaran
since 2009 I do can imagine a difference betweem build quality of "bold name" but still cheap
production boats and superior finish of just boat builders, who actually builds rather then sales.
I hv seen DF interior and just added an interior picture of a 30-feeter to compare, just follow same link (previos post) to see it is of interest.
Sure the range I am talking about is more sporty, but this is what I invite You (and others) to think of: in case, say, a smaller model trailerability and speed is You preference, then, as they say, "why to pay more?"
At the same time one can add as much "wood" in interior as he likes, because builders are open for that. Just decide in favor of 100% carbon hull
first to cut off wooden interior weigh additions!
DF is no doubts good boat! Met one Italian DF Owner this season in the Med while sitting at the anchor
and was "upset" by his ability to stay away from wind/waves by taking more favorable position very close to shore line.
