Funny, I know I couple that sold their house and bought a brand new Hunter 45 a couple of years back ('09 or '10 model). They are far from first time boat owners, however. They take impeccable care of it, but have had some weird issues. Core penetration of something in the cockpit, mast step issue, some other things. Mostly fixed under warranty, but still.

Just last weekend , as we're al commissioning, I heard them mention they may want a new boat. The word Trawler even came out of their mouths and this couple are true blood sailors for decades, with no physical limitations to warrant the change. The boat must be becoming a frustration.

On the other hand, I've known people with older Cherubini Hunters (70's and 80s) and they've been very happy with them.

I agree with Chef, however. Smack should get whatever makes him happy.
