I'm looking for a fast cruising boat to use around the NZ coast and the 3 boats that people have pointed me towards are the Lidgard 34, Lotus 1060 and the Cav 36. They are in the right range price wise (sub $140k) and are the right sort of size. Does anyone out there have any experience with these boats? I'm looking for something that is reasonably quick, can safely cope with Cook Strait conditions (big currents, big winds, disturbed seas on good days!) and can accomodate a group of 4 maybe 5 for up to a week. Any advice and feedback gratefully received.
