Been a reading for a years Thanks for the wisdom and experiences that the members shared. I am getting ready to retire next spring. My experience on the water include commercial river push boats decades ago and with as large as a46’ SeaRay. I used to take the SeaRay to Ft. Myers annually from Barkley Lake in Kentucky, 1200 miles each way. Lots of new boats and systems are on the market. My wife and I want to use the boat is S.E. Florida area for 5 months of winter, then spend summers at home in the moderate temps of the N.W. I am mechanically oriented and my companies have owned 100’s of of heavy diesel construction and mining equipment. We keep returning to the Prestige 560 for our choice. She really loves the layout and open windows. I like the roomy engine room, 3’8” draft with tunnels, the less than nose bleed pricing and the Cummins with rear facing props. The pod setup allows good space for access, hence better maintenance. I’m 6’2” and less flexible than I used to be. We want to spend several months in the Bahamas. The forums don’t really have much negative on the current Prestige line from those that have experience with them. So, my question is: “What am I missing?” Will the hull be suitable for Bahamas during winter and crossing the gulf during decent weather windows? My 46’ Sea Ray required essentially only standard servicing with 3208’s and Westerbeke for 13,000 miles. Will the maintenance requirements be “normal” to most boats? Thank you in advance for your help.
