Looking at them from a crewed charter
perspective, the galley
is very small compared to some others. I am not sure how well the anchoring
system actually works, but it looks a bit awkward if you get into difficulties.
They are well thought of here in the BVI
. I have some good friends who bought one new, briefly cruised the Med, and then sailed here to work
the boat in the crewed yacht trade
, which they did for two years. They have retired and sold the boat, but I will see them in a few weeks, and ask them.
They did love their boat (they had also crewed for the Moorings for several years on Leopard
45's) and they never expressed any concern about their trans-Atlantic Passage
, nor anything else. They did have some niggling problems with "lagoon quality", but I don't think they were major.
