a good friend has owned one for about 4years. almost every system has failed often repeatedly. parts often have to be flown from italy at great expence and delay. one of the worst failures was a hydraulic line bursting behind the wall! what a mess! the inside steering station is awful. windshield is so severely raked you can't see a darn thing. my friend is very sorry he didn't buy a hatteras. depreciation on the azimut has been nearly 80% over 4 yrs! ouch!
