"We took our Circa FPB 64-8 into the Southern Ocean, across the Pacific Ocean and up as far as Alaska.  The Dashew design is focused on safety, comfort and efficiency and it certainly delivered.  Design is one thing but it’s the engineering and construction that delivers the result.  The Circa build was so solid that even in 7-9m seas we would not even hear the fit out creak.  Literally no flex in the hull even when we dropped through a hole and fell 5m into a trough.  Aluminium is the best hull material for hard-core passage-making but it is vulnerable to electrolysis - the build never let us down with no noticeable corrosion over our ownership.  Marine systems such as solar, navigation, power generation and reticulation, water and sewerage, HVAC etc are by definition complex and always being upgraded.  Circa was a critical resource for us to manage our boat - we could always rely on quality support when we most needed it.  It’s surprising how hard it is to find good marine engineers around the world!  
We saw many other boats on our travels and were invariably proud to show off 64-8 to other experienced owners.  The overall package impressed, as well as many details like the perfect welds, finely-crafted joinery and easy-to-access areas for maintenance.  The final testimony is that we did not even have to put the boat on the market to find an eager buyer.  We continue to value our relationship with Circa and heartily recommend them to future owners who have serious adventure in mind.”
