Actually, a tight strong small boat may stand up to a big blow better than an impressive larger one. I wasn't seeking to dissuade as much as pointing out that anything over circa 45' - 47' is a lot of boat for three people, one or two of which may not have really salty experience.

The Amels have a good rep.
