Well, yah, anything that small is a toy; don't let that stop you (I consider my searail a toy, but then again, so was my F242)...what you want to know is whether or not you will have fun (probably), be able to sail where and when you want to (also probably) and be safe enough (probably). If you are just looking to get out and about, the Astus can do that. If you are looking to go visit islands--depends on how far there and back. I think the dealer wants too much for those add-ons. Jib furler is about 50 EU and you can get dyneema in small diameters for the shrouds for about 20 EU for 10 M. If they are adding chainplates in the floats, it still doesn't cost that much, so I'd get the bare boat and skip the dealer add-ons. You'll have fun making the changes yourself.I got an offer from the closest official dealer , he recommended dyneema shrouds to fix the mast and jib furler 5m2 for trimaran version. It ads up 2.3K EUR to the base proa version. What do you guys think , still a toy ?
