sab30 is on a distinguished road
I also suggested the cat as an idea...specifically the 105mc..WELL within his price range, fast, lots of room...with his Wife would LOVE but neither of us really know that much about them..only the horror stories of expensive available moorage and of course the "danger" I dont know what a boat like this can comfortably handly for waves and wind...some on the post equate them to flying kites in anything stronger than "gale force" I gotta admit it has always stuck in my mind..it does look like a boat that could meet his needs otherwise. Has anyone been out or had one out in adverse conditions...are they rated for a several day crossing if need be?

If they are interested in catamarans, but are worried about them because they don't know much about them, I'd recommend they get Chris White's The Cruising Multihull. It's an excellent book regarding them.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Gemini 105's are not exactly fast. I have an easy time running them down with my 25 year old 38 foot monohull. There are fast cats but the 105 isnt one of them. Plus the OP was looking for creature comforts equal to a 40 plus foot monohull.

max-on will become famous soon enough
I would agree with Giu, if looking at the 40 ft range, the Dehler 39 has a long waterline and a nice balance between speed for him and comfort for her, which equals joy for both. The boat is just beautiful. The design and build quality will be well above the Elan. I sail a Dehler 33; did I say I like Dehler.
