Privilege 585

The earlier Privilege line is quite different than the newer line (the older line, from the late 80s gives measurements in meters, the 39'' is the Privilege 12m) From what I can tell, they designed a luxury 65'' which had quite a new design, then kept improving that design to get the smaller, newer fleet (Privilege 37'', 435, 465, and 585). The newer yachts are supposed to be faster, have less motion under way, and be even more spacious inside (the 585 has about the same room as the 65).

The "nose" is my favorite feature! It is supposed to improve rigidity, as well as vastly increase volume. It looks like it might work well at decreasing slamming, is this the case? I can''t find specs for underwing clearance so I don''t know how it is for slamming in the first place.

Anyone else have experience or opinions or seen reviews on the Privilege range?
