well here but I'm not asking about cats.
That is a pretty big boat
that is going to require a crew to help sail it.
What type of sailing? Coastal? Caribbean
? Atlantic? High latitudes? How many people on board? Are you running charters with this? Day charters or longer term?
With out knowing some of the parameters of use and the ability of the crew, including yourself, the question your asking is somewhat akin to how long is a piece of string?
There are a lot of very knowledgeable members here on this board, but without a better understanding if intended use, no on can give you a perspective that would help.
