The other boat that made the cut was the Privilege Serie 5, but I haven't many comments on that boat. The price of a new Privilege 5 is about $250k above the Antares, but the 2014 model at the show was closer in price.

In the end, I opted for the Antares and wrote the check to secure an early 2018 slot, but I still have thoughts of the Privilege lingering. I would like to hear more opinions on the Privilege.
Congrats on the Antares, don't think you will regret it. I have looked at a few cats, and kept coming back to the Antares.

I am hoping to secure a 2019 slot soon!

Re: Random thoughts from my weekend of Cat shopping in Miami

We were at the Miami show and my wife and I fell in love with the lagoon 450F it was nice and roomy and we are planning to charter our boat out as a honeymooner boat. But that's a few years out yet. I'm working on my 100 ton lic. And she is working on her Fine foods and presentation.

Re: Random thoughts from my weekend of Cat shopping in Miami

Thanks for your thoughts.

You briefly mention the FP40 (I presume the new Lucia 40) - what did you like (and not like) about it? It looks great to me given what I've seen on the FP Web site but I haven't seen a "real" one yet.

I'll probably be looking for something else second-hand (i.e. cheaper) in a year or two unless I win the lottery in the meantime :-).
