I didn't see this type of finish on the Royal Cape at all.

Privelege and Sunreef are the only cats I've seen that have very nice woodwork. As others have suggested, St. Francis has good finish also.

I want to thank all of you for your replies. They have been really helpful.

It's hard not to like the PDQ Antares, a boat apparently intended for live-aboard cruisers. The competitors boats that we view that are ex charter boats have too many heads and berths that we just won't use. The company seems to have a great attitude too.

I can understand why the OP likes/wants a wood interior.

It is indeed. I looked at a few on Yachtworld. What a unique layout.
