Looking for Performance-Oriented Cat to Charter

I realize that performance and "charter cat" have diverged over the last decade or so, just curious if anyone has any recomendations for alternatives that might have a bit more sailing "fun". Destination is back to the Caribbean next spring.

I've bareboated many of the lagoons, FPs, etc in the 38-46' range over the last 15-20 years. Not sure if I should go for something perhaps a bit older but bigger to find some power and speed or what. There is a crewed Atlantic 57 out there that is quite quick, but it's a bit pricey and only handles 6 (we have 6 adults and 2 kids.) Would prefer a bareboat, but might consider a crewed version for the right price. There are some big older Tris out there, but not sure what kind of performance they have.

Thanks for any ideas.

I'd suggest an Outremer. They do them out of Martinique and Guadaloupe.
