Curious what others think about this new model. We had a chance to check it out at the Ft. Lauderdale show. I really how they squeezed some nice livability space wise into a hull that size but had some other areas I didn't like.

Access and space in the engine compartment was limited and tight. God forbid you need to remove an engine. No option or ability for hydraulic swim platform.

I've been aboard two of these, altho not while underway...
I still sorta feel like they are slightly undersized, somehow. Altho, I am a big guy.
...Looking forward to seeing the new C43 coupe, apparently debuting at the 2015 Miami show.

I found a pix on the web. personally I don't like broken shear lines though I'm sure it increased interior space. I also don't like slanted front windows that create a greenhouse effect that will require heavy AC all the time.

Hard to tell about foredeck access.

Foredeck access isn't bad but not as easy as our Mariner. We also got a look at the Prestige 420 Fly which we liked as well.

There was a cruisers model in the 90s with that forward design. It did not sell well in the resale market iirc
