We toured a new one of these at a boat show several years ago here on the east coast; it may very well been this exact boat as it looks very familiar. For the life of me I can't recall anything I didn't like about other than what I felt was a tight, low headroom engine room for my taste. Ann is not a big fan of galley-up, separate pilot house designs, but she said she could get used to this one. On the other hand, for our purposes (coastal cruising) she also noted it have anything we wanted that our old Hatteras didn't, and lacked the aforementioned things the Hatteras did.
Overall, very nice boat, no doubt.
