    Curve-ball suggestion for you Graham. What about a powercat? Lagoon or Bene, or Dazcat can design and build one to your exact spec (I was talking with them about it last Friday).

    Hoho. I know it's mitigated a bit by the shape of that model, I do think that an FB would be a potentially great choice for the UK...

    I can't get used to the whole catamaran thing, they just look so wrong. I'm also a tad alarmed at the mooring costs....

    Don't close your mind to it, they have some great benefits:-

    15l/hr at 15kts
    big saloon with windows to look out of
    big galley
    Pig "patio" on the back
    Lots of sunbathing space
    You can park them in very shallow water (up a beach)
    Make a very comfy "floating holiday home"

    Mooring can be cheap if you choose carefully, as they don't draw much.

    The guys at Dazcat were talking about building a hybrid diesel/electric one, which could be very trick.

    Any extra you pay on mooring fees with be saved 10 times over in fuel.
