PCP will become famous soon enough
I like the Azuree 33 and I have no doubt that it would be more fun and faster, but for living aboard the RM seems better to me and I am sure that after the Baba you will find it a very fast boat .

They are very hard to get on second hand. They have made more than a hundred boats and all you can find is one boat on the used market and at a high price.

I have found this one but only in one add. I don't know if it is already sold. It seems to be at a good price and probably you can get always some cut but it is on the Canary Islands. That should not be a problem and you would take the opportunity to know the place and Madeira on the way back .

RM 1050 - Voilier occasion - FORA MARINE

Consider also that if you buy a new boat you will lose in the first 2 years (on most boats) about 35% of the boat value while if you buy a good used boat the loss will be small. Meaning that if the Azuree 33 tuns not to be the boat you really want to live aboard, you will lose a lot of money when you sell it.
