With the intention of the Big Trip starting September 2019 from the Canaries
westbound, it's about time to choose the right boat
. With our budget
, we are aiming at the Bene 473 but lately started considering a Lagoon
380S2 as this is pretty much the only sensible cat in our price
range. We have experience on both monos and cats, and currently own a Bene 39.3. The crew is myself with the wife and our 2 kids
, but most probably with 2-3 guests most of the time.
Help me choose! I have read all about how you should not overload the cat for cruising, hobbyhorsing motion at sea, the argument of not standing up from a knockdown vs never sinking etc. I know pretty much what to expect from the 473. I'd appreciate some thoughts especially from folks who have done both cats and monos. Thanks.
