Hey, just wanted to know if any one has take out the new boats in Long Beach? 

They recently got the new 45ft Beneteau Hilaria and the 45ft catamaran Leopard New Quiver. 

How are they?

Has anyone taken them on multi-day trips yet?

Any fun photos you'd share with us?

I have not had a chance yet. For first time renters, it would surely help if they could add the "floor plans" of the boats to the pictures on the website.

Also do you know what happened to the winter discount? When I try to book Quiver for two days it comes out to $4000+.

I just did an overnight to Avalon on the Beneteau 45 Hilaria .   It is a smooth, comfortable boat and was well appointed.  While the wind was not cooperative on the first day, when we did get wind, it moved with little effort in 5 knots of wind, but we did have to motor most of the day.   On the second day it was much the same until we came within 2 hours of the breakwater at which time the wind picked up and we reached between 8 and 10 knots with little effort.  

the berth was comfortable, the heads were clean, the galley had everything one would need, just kick in the consumables.

Hi Tim,

It must have been you when I spotted Hilaria on Vessel Finder, apparently returning to Shoreline.

10 knots boat speed! Sounds great!

Hi Tim, can you confirm that Hilaria is a 3 cabin, 2 head layout? Thanks in advance.
