Cantieri Estensi's third entry into its Maine line of builds looks like it may be a keeper. The 640 has the requisite live-aboard size for a true second home, and enough range (2,900 miles at a cruise speed of 7 mph) to get its owners to most any exotic port of call with ease. And those journeys should be relaxing and enjoyable particularly since the yard says it put so much energy into making the boat quiet. In fact it claims with confidence that life onboard is as tranquil as on any sailboat. That's a bold statement indeed, but may have appeal to a certain class of cruiser.
