    In spite of reviewing a number of questionable comments regarding this vessel, after a survey and one hour sea trial I purchased it to replace our 390 Dancer. Immaculate, freshwater only and with 400 hours the design was exactly what we were looking for.

    I noted Surfside 3 recommended for parts in the future, if needed. Any other recommendations for contacts or forums that offer suggestions in a more positive light?

    Are you happy with your purchase so far? We are looking at buying one also.

    I really like the looks of the 43S.

    I took care of a 43S for some years and the real major problem I had with it was the IPS and its clutches going nuts after the sixth season. Not a cheap fix at 2k a pop.
    There is clutch upgrade now since some years and they should at least serve 8/10 years versus the 4/5 years of the older version.

    Define flooded... how high did the water go? Salt or fresh? If there was significant amount of water inside, it s almost never worth it
