Dirkdig sums it up well on the flybridge. Bought our 440 in February in Guadeloupe
, and sailed around the area for 4 months just the two of us, and occasionally with guests - the feedback is unanimous.
Once you have experienced a flybridge, you won't go back to sitting behind a bulkhead, so if still in doubt, good idea to charter
If you're worried about the weather
on the flybridge, get a forward screen
, or do what we do, wait for the right weather
window - that does depend on your cruising style though.
Re: the boom, it's manageable ! (But true, a little bit of a pain, but nothing compared to the advantages of the flybridge)
