I specifically selected the Sun Loft because it is (besides a very few exceptions) the only way to have 6 real cabin. There is a 7th skipper "cabin" at the bow.
To make this happen, all the living space has been brought up on the deck (you only have cabins and bathrooms under deck).
The Charter company (base location, people, service, etc.) is great.
On the plus side (boat): very social, everyone is together; huge table/sun bath on the back.
On the minus side (boat): you don't have a separate space to drive or trim the sail. You end up moving across people preparing lunch to trim the sale. The mast seems really short, the boom is really high (to clear the sun top), which means the mainsail is pretty small.
The jib is self-tacking, which means it is really small as well.
So the boat is ok when you have a lot of wind, but remember you have the kitchen right there by the steering wheels...
And finally - no bow thruster. I can't even understand why you would manufacture a charter boat of that size without a boat thruster.
In summary, I would definitely charter a boat again at this charter company (good location, nice people, effective service), but probably not a Sun Loft 47. You have boats of the same size on the market that are so much more fun to sail - but they will have only max. 5 cabins...
The dialoge with the Charter company was very good. They where friendly and helpful. On arrival day we didnt get the boat ready for sailing until late saturday the 30/7. There was a problem with the electrical ramp for the Dingy. It was temporarily repaired. The ramp was lopsided and a bit embarresing to sail around with. All in all we are very satisfied with the charter company.
