Re: Privilege 45 for offshore cruising?
I own a 1995 Privilege 45 that I purchased two years ago. I've done a number of projects on her and am quite intimate with the systems, design and construction. I can tell you that, having looked at and sailed quite a few cats before purchasing the P45, IMHO the Privilege line is one of the best built production boats on the water. They are a very stable platform while underway or at anchor.
I'd be happy to talk with you about what I've learned since owning this boat if you'd like to forward your contact information.
