Question for Jeff and S/F. I have watched this board for some time now and respect your experience and well-grounded answers to the posts that I read.
Are the features of "seakindly, offshore capable, roomy, and fast" even possible in a boat under 40 feet? And what is "fast"?
I know that a Hylas 54 is all of those things. But how does the average working smuck buy that capability?
