There's no downside to the Alegria's serviceability, however. Drop in through the day hatch, or lift the entire cockpit sole hydraulically. Unlike V-drives, the engines aren't crammed against the transom. Also, boats taper aft, so the forward placement of the Alegria's engines means they're in a beamier section of the hull. You have easy 360-degree access to the motors, genset, seacocks, and other accessories. What I didn't like was the location of the rudderposts. They're tough to get at. Plus, several wire runs lacked chafe protection where they penetrated bulkheads. Doral says this was a result of rushing the boat to the water for my test and that production boats won't suffer the same lapse. Check it out anyway.
