with a doghouse like the Amel ...
Talk to you soon if you know of one !
It is hard to beat an Amel, especially if you are living in Europe
I looked hard at Amels, I finally went with a Hylas
Downside of a ketch
is twice the rigging
and increased maintenance
over a sloop
. Knowing what I know now, if I found a decent Amel sloop
, I would seriously consider it.
However I am very happy with my Hylas
