I''m surprised you have no comments so far, so I''ll give you my impression of the boat from my boat show visit. Seems like a great boat to me -- should be fast and has a surprisingly roomy interior. I think Tim Jackett uses angles and curves very well in the interior design to take advantage of the curves of the hull while soem designers only seem to think in terms of straight lines.
The C&C''s have been received very well since Tartan (well, Fairport Marine I guess it is) took over the name and redesigned the line. I think even Denr will approve.
So what is the other boat on your list?
Good luck. I have to admire your analytical process and willingness to turn over every rock looking for the right boat.
