Hi There - Anyone Know About the 1994 Dean 40 ?

I am looking for a blue water catamaran which is comfortable, well built and very safe on the open ocean. I plan on living on it for about 2-3 years maybe more if I really enjoy it.

I am looking at buying a Dean 40 1994. Has anyone owned this model of boat. What does she sail like and does it slap much. With the main sail leaning aft does it lift the front of the boat much, does the asymmetrical hulls make any different. Is there any issues structural mostly that I should be award of with this boat.

Thanks
Don
