Center cockpits +''''s & -''''s
My main complaint about my Irwin CC for blue water use was the location of the nav-station and the cockpit was a bit tight. I have never boarded a Formosa, but I just pulled up a few on the internet. They look very functional. U-shaped galley (some Formosa CC are straight line, not good!!), larger functional nav-station, ****-pit is much large than the Irwin and good storage below. It looks like a great layout. I can''t speak to their construction quality or sailing characteristics. Also, you will probably use the settee as your sea birth while underway.
Eric is correct in his comments. Having the helm in the center affords a more comfortable and stable feel.
