We're going with Corian, it's easy to work with ( think wood ) cuts, routers like hardwoods and edging can either be in Corian or teak or even Corian with teak inlays.
We, look at a Tayana 55 several years ago that had ceramic which was really nice and grouting was with a caulking, I wouldn't be too concerned with CT tops, also 1/4 hardibacker is pretty lightweight
All our tops, tables and even the nav desk is formica right now and though formica has a lot of choices, Corian is just easier for me to work with.
Plus we want the polished granite look
