RE: Suggestions and informations for a potential future owner


Welcome to the forum. You will get good advice here.* I think you need to tell us a little more about your cruising style.* If you are mostly cruising close to home or passagemaking will make a big difference.

From what I know about the Med, this may not be such a good selection.* Mainships are a good boat for the money, but are coastal cruisers with occasional offshore runs.* I have had one, but don't think I would like it for cruiising distances in the Med.* I have been on a 400' ship there that was taking* good beating.

There will be other opinions, but I think a full displacement passagemaker would work very well.**A very robust planing hull with plenty of power could work if you are not concerned about fuel costs.

What area in Italy will you be boating?
