Re: Montecarlo 43
Havn't seen the Saga but I'll have a look today. KPs are great boats. Had we not gone the way we did they would have been right up the top of our list. Its maybe being a little picky but the only thing I don't like about them is that the deck comes down quite low over the aft end of the double berth and it appears most people sleep head forward not aft.
When we bought our girl we intended sleeping head forward in the v-berth but found it overly claustrophobic. We now sleep feet forward which is a less than perfect arrangement, particularly for an old fart like me, as would be head forward in an aft cabin.
The Saga looks nice though and seems very realistically priced though I can see the advantages of an aft cabin, as distinct from the quarter cabin, for a family. Maybe I am becoming overly obsessed with sleeping arrangements but Pullman berths are not well suited to hot climates. 7' draft ? For a cruising boat I do like to keep it under six. Picky perhaps.
