Thanks for the replies.
Yes, I am thinking about using the boat to cross oceans.
I have chartered modern Hunters in various sizes and have liked what I've seen. My basis for comparison is quite limited....Catalina. I've chartered both new and older Catalinas. My opinion of Catalina is that the newer ones compare poorly to their elder sisters.
I realize the 460 is older than the 466 and would account for most of the price difference, but I was mainly wondering if there are any really significant design differences. I am considering this model because apparently I can get a 46' boat for 150K-$170K that is only 5 years old. If anyone thinks this is just a really stupid boat for passage making, please let me know why.

Thanks again and Fair Winds,
~Stoomy
