I would like to seek advice / opinion from fellow catamaran
experienced sailors on FP Marquises 56 2001 model (owner version). I found one within my prce range however personally do not have sailed this particular model. I would like to know
- the wave slapping experience in usual sea conditions (though all Catamarans have slapping based on sea conditions).
availability (how easy and widely available) of this particular model
space compare to other FP models or other similar size cats.
- upwind sail ability ( how much close to wind
one can sail)
- build quality compare to similar cats, mast
and other standing riggle strength
Lastly in general if this model is worth buying
or any other better brand / model to consider for comparison.
(I m looking to buy a Cat for offshore
cruising and ocean crossings, I would like to request the replies focused on the topic I dont mean to start a brand war etc. thanks in advance)
