All-Clad Master Chef 2 or LTD? On a boat?

I have decided to buy an All-Clad 5 1/2 quart saucier. I cannot decide between a Master Chef 2 and LTD. I'll use this pan for about 11 years in my home kitchen, then plan on moving it to a sailboat we'll be living on. I use my current saucier more than all my other pans combined. When we move aboard, I won't be able to take many pots and pans. This one and my pressure cooker will be going for sure. There may be few, if any, other ones I can bring. (Small space!)

I've read that these two All-Clad collections have the same amount of internal aluminum, so it's down to the exterior finish. I need durable and low (least?) maintenance. I'd like it to stay looking nicely, of course. And, we'll be sailing in sea water, so if one would stand up better to a marine environment that would be good to know. I'm perfectly happy to hand wash. I never ever put any of my pots or pans in the dishwasher. I do have young children, but, as they won't be able to lift this beast for years, I'm not overly concerned about their handling of it.
