New Member Mainship WannaBe
Just located & joined this site. My husband and I have been searching for a 43 or larger Mainship, without much luck so far. Interested in the 479 we just learned about, but can't find a word about it on the Forum....or much else on these. Appears the 43's for sale are all 2 cabin/1 head. We'd like 2 heads...and more of a 2nd cabin 'real' bed... We're experienced boaters. Cruised full time from Canada thru the Caribbean for nearly six years as full time live aboards. Sold her and moved to dry land....Two years later, miss the water way too much! The Mainship is our choice with her wider beam and ability to crank up to 16-20 knots...vs slow trawler at 8 knots or so. Thanks for all the various threads, I'm learning a lot about Mainship issues (davits/swim platforms/engines, etc)!
