Large, well-equipped production cruising boats of this size can cross oceans in relative comfort and speed, but you'll need deep pockets to operate and maintain them.
Not only will their systems be powerful, complex and power-hungry but they'll need equally powerful and complex charging regimes to keep everything up and running. Regular maintenance and upkeep will be even more essential than it is on smaller vessels.
If you're the proud owner of such a vessel and would like to see her featured on this page, please click here to send me a pic.
Even if your boat falls outside of this length category, we'd still like a pic; we'll move it to the appropriate category and research the specification and other associated data.
