I haven't seen either in the flesh as we've only just (last year) bought into power cats. The analysis I've done is armchair, but trying to remove as much of the manufacturer information and base it on owners stories. So I'll shutup
...except to say that, if we had the money
, we would have purchased Domino
- as a match for most of our particular purposes.
Of the production boats, if we had the money
, we may have ended up with a PDQ41 as a good middle ground of something big enough to do what we want yet small enough for a couple to handle and moor cheapishly.
But neither would have satisfied our desire to slowly cruise
the French/Belgium/Dutch canal
system, so it's all a compromise.
