I own one of their L43...great boat, the only thing that bugs me a bit is the limited visibility at the helm.
Also there is no winch to raise the dinghy...needs some muscle for the engine side.
Watch the electric usage as the fridge and freezer tend to suck up quite a bit if you leave them on. Conch will probably tell you to turn them off at night

The front cabins have the best ventilation.

I tried to charter a 43 from them this past Feb,but they only had the 42 left. I liked the boat but it was only my second Cat charter so I'm no expert.

Every Conch charter I've done they've told me to charge the freezer in the morning and evening when you're running the engine for the batteries...
