My God, you are a lucky guy...I mean if you are not joking
I would take the Oyster out of that list (not fast enough) and I could add plenty boats but you have to explain better what you mean by fast. The JP54 is very fast but would rate very badly in regatta racing. That one is intended to cross oceans fast with a very small crew. There are others with the same program.
The Swan 80 or the X 65 are a completely different beasts and they are boats that will rate well but will need a full crew to be sailed fast.
Tell me between these two types what is the one that is more adapted to the program your friend want and I will post some suggestions. Meanwhile have a look at this post:
Paulo, luckily for me, I'm not joking on this one...which is rare. We'll see what happens in the end, but he's got the means to do it if he sees what he wants.
In that regard, as you might imagine, he wants it all. So I'm trying to help him narrow down some options that will work for him. He definitely wants fast. And he'll probably want to dabble in regattas (and will have no trouble securing crew for them). But, he also wants something very cool and luxurious as well (i.e. - not a balls-out, stripped down racer). So it's got to be that mix.
From his perspective, the best example of this mix I can give you at this point is his favorite private jet: Challenger CL60. Very fast jet, but really luxe on the interior (white leather seats, white carpet, dark woods, etc.). He wants a boat like that.
Knowing his sense of style (European Modernist), I think he'll love everything about the JP54. And though I really like that boat, I think it's too limited based on what he wants - and will give him your additional feedback above.
The Oyster was in the mix purely because of its more "opulent" interior - to offer a counter to the more modern, simpler interiors of the Swan and the X (which he likes better anyway).
Finally, though he could go with a custom design (like the Ourson which I'll show him - thanks for that), I think he really wants to stick with a series brand for his first boat.
So let me know if you have other boats that fit this genre. I've looked at the Luffe, and a couple others you mentioned above, but hadn't really looked at the Grand Soleil. That could definitely work. Is the 72' in production? What are some of the Italian boats that you think are comparable in this range?
