Nice layouts and MAN engine choices which I like. In fact, may lead me to look at them as I haven't very closely in the past. They do have a US dealer network. As to single level main deck, perhaps that's an option as the one I'm looking at online has a step up. Seem worthy of at least consideration. Now for the one negative to be wary of. They are part of the Beneteau Group. The Monte Carlo 52 is built in France but the others still at the old Monte Carlo Yacht plant in Italy. Now, it's my understanding that Beneteau made a lot of changes in production after acquisition. These included modern production line techniques and lightening the boat while changing methods and materials. I don't know whether that improved or worsened the boat. I'm not a fan of Beneteau boats so gives me some concern. However, modernizing techniques and materials could be a great positive. I would definitely go for the MAN 1200's and not the 1000's. Test results I've seen have WOT of 29 and 31 knots depending on engine but on the surface the performance curve seems still a bit sluggish which was a previous complaint and something Beneteau strove to correct. Three stateroom layout spacious, four a bit crowded as you'd expect. You've made me curious now.
