Like several others we liked this one better than the offerings from Bene and Jeann. ESP for serious coastal cruising. Liked the storage, still 'nautical' joinery and the port aft multi-purpose space...BUT felt the cockpit hatch access to that area was too open - a fairly large seat locker open to the entire boat. For serious voyaging I think you'd want to do something different there.
