We looked a lot at those boats and really liked them. I do not think you are going back in quality one bit. The one thing I didn't care for was the Fleming 55 type low headroom engine room, as nicely laid out as it is. Ann didn't care for the galley up arrangement. Beyond that, for us, a very nice boat.
I have been out on an Offshore 62 in some medium chop and swell and though the boat rode and handled extremely well.
