A creature comfort speedster?
Well over the Christmas season a friend and I were discussing our next sailing plans and my friend wants to sail back and forth between Panama and Pacific Northwest. So he wants a completely different boat than what I need..the discussion began....he wants a 40' foot min newer model (late 90's and newer) but he wants as much speed as he can get with plenty of creature comforts with some room inside. Up to 300K MAX Tankage is not a huge issue (min 100 g of water) and keel not important...but wants a GOOD quality boat in case it does blow or decides to round up into the Caribbean.
My guess was a Sabre 402 but he was questioning me about an Elan 434 -Ive never been on either so I told him I would post....
