650 is a lovely boat, very nicely made, good looking and classy. Aint the 600 a ring hull?

I think that the 600 that I am looking at was designed by Victory Marine (Italy) in'95 ish.

Thanks

Had a look round a 650 earlier this year. Really liked it, an excellent compromise of size, performance, usabuility, etc - so much so I'd consider one as my next boat.

Ah right, a bit like the 830, with the Purshing screen?

dunno anything about them, but the 830 has bags of 'warp' in the deadrise, and a very fine bows, I would imagine they're pretty good in a seaway (not Leeway)
