What is funny.. on the waterline, Dorade is shorter.

The Jeanneau 44 has a LWL 39 feet, 4 inches.

Dorade has a LWL of 38 feet, 10 inches (roughly, they list it as 38.9 feet)

What I find funny is all the hate. Can you not celebrate that a antique and Vintage Race Boat beat all the Fantastic Plastic Yachts on her Rating? That is what Ratings are for.. otherwise the Trans-pac would be a simple One Design
