Ready to buy - want to testsail (charter)

Ahoy all! My husband and I are ready to buy the Liveaboard cat.

This week's short list includes a 2000 Privilege 37, 1999 Lagoon 410, 2008 Manta Mark IV, 2007 Grainger 37, and a 1996 Prout Escale 39.

We would like to charter first (in the US or Caribe?) but many of the older models are no longer in charter.

I have been perusing the CW forums - lots of great info and opinions - thanks.

Would love to learn your rankings and reasons for the boats on our list and if you know where we can charter similar boats - please share.
THX

There should be a lot of folks that can comment on the Privilege 37, 1999 Lagoon 410, as they are popular with high numbers built. The Grainger 37, if it is like his other offerings, would offer good performance if that is what your looking for.

That's a wide variation in boats and price you have there. For the price of the Manta you could have my Privilege 435, the best cruising cat of all.
