    My parents have been looking at the Sunseeker Manhattan 56 (2001-2002) for some time.

    I had hoped that you could tell me a bit about this model. Is the quality and finish OK? How does it perform with the different engine options and so on.

    We saw one on land a few days ago, and even though we like the design- it disappointed a bit because of all the gaps and holes filled with water that couldn't be drained. It just didn't look practical for the weater here in Denmark/Sweden. - Also we noticed this "bulk" (dont know the word - sorry) between the props on the bottom. It looked like its only purpose was keeping the nose down when sailing, which i suppose wouldnt be necessary in a well-balanced hull? Unfortunatly we couldnt see it from the inside.

    Right now we own a 40 foot Fairline, but have also been looking at the Princess 50 (2001-2002). We are only looking at used boats, but if anyone could help us compare these two (the Sunseeker and the Princess) it would be great.

    I am sorry about my english. I hope you understand the questions.
