Just thought I would share my impressions of the Multi's I looked at during the Miami
show this past weekend... would like to hear from others who went...
I went fully expecting to be blown away by the Helia and it was a great boat. Those sharp corners were obvious, but the layout was very good.
The Lagoon 400
was pretty impressive and I was glad to see the Mfg's finally came to their senses and are placing a single shower
on the two cabin
side, I still think just one toliet and one seperate shower
for the two guest cabins is plenty... so they are getting there... but this is a very "Big" 40ft boat....
I really want to love the 450 as there are some good ones on the market but every time I sit up on that helm
I can just imagine how rough it would be to craw up there in rough weather
on a dark and stormy night to check the sails
... just no way to really protect that big space... it also seems very removed from the rest of the boat which might be a good thing at times :-)
didn't have a 421 but there was an older 420 in the Charter
group and that boat continues to impress me with it's space... you couldn't go wrong with this vessel either...
The boat I was still really impressed with and see why it had won Boat Of the Year was the new Leopard
48... it is just fantastic and at about the same cost as the the Helia well equiped (low 700's), it was my favorite, but you would have to install a CCTV camera
to see the Port side as it is completely blind from the Helm
station... Still the livability of this vessel is amazing.... The 44 is also very nice and a bit easier to handle I suspect... They both would have so much windage, but they are both all about being there and not getting there...
We didn't have time to fully explore the show and may have missed other boats that really impressed other folks so would like to hear your thoughts...
