so as i sit thinking of retirement
and what i can fix next on my Cat22 i am perplexed with the decision of these two well built blue-water cruisers. i have sailed a 410 and 380 extensively in the BVI and FL on charter
and when returning from a 14 day rum
filled haze i saw what seemed to be a dream come true. what was docked next to us was a 2004 Privilege
435 just returned from an Atlantic crossing
and was star struck! what a beautiful ride! it was all kitted out with solar
maker, if i could quit and buy her then and there i would have. now after a weekend at the insatiable Annapolis boat show
last October i set my hearts desire on the new version 400 or 450. with my mind set and my vision seeded i thought the search was over. i will be eligible to retire in 8-10 years and felt that in that time this years Lagoon
yachts will be within my financial grasp then.
so now the question to the CF readers and to hopefully start a progressive informational debate: which one would you choose if you could, and why....
thanks for all those who have made this exist and keep it going! invaluable information on everything.
