The use that you have described is exactly what the Beneteau shines at. Keep in mind that they build boats for the charter fleets and that should tell you alot since you are going to use it the same way, a week at a time. In fact based on your post above, maybe owning a charter boat is the way to go for you, have you considered that. Good luck in your decision and don't let the naysayers bring you down.
Pigs, sorry to ask, but where did you read any bashing or naysaying in this thread about the boat he wants??
