Cost a bit more to dry dock due to the need of extra support. If you are using tidal rivers, the worry of going aground and falling to one side. Headroom versus draught.
Living retirement in the slow lane.
20 years hiring, 6 years of shared ownership and a Continuous Cruiser since 2007 but still learning!
Not only will the boat cost more to be dry docked or slipped if it has a V hull, but you will need to look a little harder to find a boatyard to accommodate you.
A boat with a V hull will handle better on a windy day or if there’s a current, but you will probably have a deeper draught so may well be ploughing the bottom as you cruise.
