flyinghigh meets you all!!

Hi all, i'm very proud to be a part of this useful community! I'm 45, from rome, italy and together with my girlfriend (she's from denmark) we are approaching our "buen retiro" or "escape" on board of a multihull. Infact we are planning our first cruiser around the world. My last experience on a sailing boat (single hull) was a cruise from genoa, italy, to dhalak islands, eritrea, read sea. It was really amazing. More, i've been travelling and cruising lots of far seas such as indonesia (from giava to alor) africa (madagascar) tuamotou (french polinesia). Actually we are getting as many informations and books we can get regarding our plan. Last but not Least the searching of our multhihull.
We really appreciate all of your advice!
Warmest regards to all of you.

Nice to have you on board....I, for one, will certainly enjoy following your "buen retiro".
I'm a mono hull guy, but there are lots of knowledgeable multi guys here that will surely be helpful in your choice of boats...
If you haven’t already done it, I strongly suggest you use the search tool...there has been lots on this topic.
Good luck

thank you for your warm welcome! I think i will post a new thread concerning a catamaran (new on the market) in the right section, of course! I'm talking about the new Spirited 480 an Australian catamaran. To whom it might concern i will open a new thread -for more info on spirited- in the multihull section. Kindest regards!
