Our other favorites were a Defever 50', the Krogen Express 52', Grand Banks Europa 42' and the Fountaine Pajot powercats.
We were only there for one day and decided to skip some the whales that were too big and order of magnitude over our budget. Come to think of it, most we looked at were an order of magnitude over our budget....sigh.
We weren't impressed with the 55 either. First of al the bow area that was painted green looked like a stick on piece of vinyl. The hull and superstructure were different shades of white that really stood out, the wood interior looked like high grade Home Depot plywood. Never even saw the engine room. Also had no walk around side decks which made spring lines go Fromm the bridge which is an an awkward place.
Also anyone that's in our area and wants to see ours, your welcome. I'm always pittling with something on the boat.
