Aft vs. Center Cockpit


Thanks. I would generally prefer the aft cockpit since, as you indicated, the roling motion is more violent in CC''s. My wife, who points out that 75-80% of the time a boat is at anchor or at a marina, prefer the space offered by a CC. Since we are looking for a boat in the 40-45 range, I have so far seen only one boat that seems to offer a reasonable compromise, meaning it still has good bluewater characteristics and features and that is the Wauquiez Pilot Saloon Series.
