I think you'll find that most any diesel boat will handle better than gas because of the greater torque provided. The 390/40 MY will be impacted by adverse winds around the dock but less so than an aft cabin with an upper bridge. I think you'd be hard pressed to find one without a bow thruster which will help. As to airflow, there is an electrically actuated window in the center of the windshield and opening side windows. With those and the side and aft doors open there is plenty of airflow on my boat. But, probably the majority of the time we operate with everything closed and enjoy the AC.
