A good 1220 is 150 plus, these must pretty substantial boats. Still I would be cautious spending what is still a big chunk of change without a survey

it's a pretty light ballast:displacement ratio of 24.7 %.
But the D/L (displacement to length ratio) at 351 is higher.
Safety record in storms? I couldn't find the mandatory European STIX value. But I did get loads of sh*t from google which was totally irrelevant. I got one hit with duckduckgo

they are awesome boats, "Steerforth" is a stretched one being about 46ft and it was sold in top nick a few years back for around 310k, was a three skin kauri boat. i think this boat would sell around 250 ish if listed normally.
out of my price range right now

That 24.7 sound's wrong to me. I would cheerfully go pretty much anywhere in it. They've cruised all over for ages. Never heard of one having a problem. Lovely boats.
But how can you say that if it doesn't have the mandatory European STIX?
You are clearly a reckless person with low consequence appreciation within your personality type.

Was that a compliment? What is Stix? Sounds like a chocolate bar.

I agree. Who would put to sea without a Stix value?

Seaford just back here from ica rally
Seaforth aint a Cav 45. She's a newer generation .We spent some time with those guys , great people. We had 3 Davidson 45's( Seaforth might be 46) lined up in fulaga, one of which was a cav .
That design , Cav 45, is probably one of the best ocean boats you can buy .Ton of room , indestructible, fast in cruiser terms. Stix , schmix ,book learning does not trump one of the worlds best designers . Those boats get cat 1 all day every day and they can't do that without the correct stability .
Vingalot was made to get a stability report for the round NZ a few years ago for whatever the race version of cat 1 is . Flying colours, as expected.
