Saw both at the Boat Show too. Would happily hijack either.

One big plus I did not see mentioned in favour of the Europa style, (ie: covered side decks) is the near elimination of window leaks and damaged interior paneling. I have seen some with damage but precious few "compared to the other designs".

Widow leaks are also eliminated with decently designed and properly maintained windows.

Bruce, it seems I was wrong about the GB at the boat show,there is no 55'.

Can you remember which model it was?

Sounds like you might have received a PM.
I think it was a greater foot number than 55, maybe 59 or 62, not sure, there was only one GB as I recall, the adjacent associated boat was another make (?Selene).
GB sizing seems odd to me, people I know have a 52 but it gets talked of as 60ft.
