Jurlsburd We have a Symbol 45 (2006) in Edmonds. Glad to hear you are considering one. Had trouble posting a response to you on the pilothouse thread. Hope you find this or someone steers you to it. The Symbol is new to us. Bought it on the east coast, cruised it to Fort Lauderdale and shipped it to the Seattle area. Itís a very heavy, very stable boat. Cruises easily at 10 - 14 knots. WOT 18.
Very high quality, fantastic wood work, beautiful pilothouse. The major shortcoming is lack of visibility to the rear, especially to the swim step. Our solution will be to install rear view cameras. With twin engines and both bow and stern thrusters, the boat is maneuverable.
Where are you located? Hope to meet up sometime. Bob
