Dame right I have never used one. (My wife owns one, and love it.) I have my tools and she has hers.

So, I guess your wife does all the vacuuming in the boat too...

We have the dyson DC35 (the "animal" was not available when we bought it 2 years ago).

Pros: very good suction, easy to clean, high quality construction, nice wall rack that when mounted keeps unit charged easily, the beater brush does a good job on boat carpet, battery life has remained constant

cons: you have to hold the power trigger on the whole time you're using it - annoying there isn't a on/off button. Cost. Battery life is only about 10 min or so, but typically we can vacuum the whole boat in the time it runs. It takes a long time to recharge once run down (hours) and there is no separate battery to swap.

I would definitely buy one again. Not sure what the animal has in terms of upgrades from our model, but we've actually gotten used to grabbing it for quick household clean ups as well instead of using our central vac.

+1 on the Dyson. I must say we have had a few hitches with ours. Power button got stuck, accordion hose tore other than that it sucks great. Model = DC 24. Power cord is also very, very short.

Have a older model Animal. It's 7 yrs old and runs like the day we bought it. Our golden SHEDS. Fills the container half full EVERYDAY. My husband cannot comment on this thread, he had to ask where the power button was the one and only time he used it.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely,in a well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting " Holy#%*^ what a ride!"

I have the Dyson DC 25 and its the best vacuum I have used. It will pick up dirt/dust that other vacuums wont. Its also quieter then the Eureka's and Hoover that I had. The Dyson is expensive but its worth every penny. Yes I would buy another

The DC41 can't be touched by any other vacuum. Simply unbeatable. Use it to clean out the vehicles and the boat, wouldn't use anything else.
