No WAY! I will admit that Cam has a lot more experience down the east coast than I do... but that kind of draft and mast height will absolutely rule you out of MANY places. You can basically kiss off almost all of SW Florida, much or all of the keys, much of the Texas Coast and LA coast, Bahamas, and come to think if it, I am tying to rack my brain where I have been taht you will get around with that draft except Caliafornia. THat is the only place I have been you won't be sitting on the hard all the time. Now that may not be a big deal until you have a storm coming and no place to duck.

No way. Not for me. If you need that kind of room and want to go around the world, buy a Nordhavn. Not much more money if any.
