PCP will become famous soon enough
Luffe 36.6/Dragonfly 28

Rumen, those are two very different boats and I would be very interested in knowing your impressions.

The Dragonfly is a much faster boat but that do not mean a more pleasurable boat (or the opposite). You will find that in what regards cruising the Luffe is a much bigger boat, with more interior space, more comfort and a bigger autonomy. If you want to sail more than a week without being in a spartan way, the Luffe would be the "normal" choice. If you are looking mostly for daysailng or weekend cruising than the Dragonfly 28 will be a lot of fun.

If you want to cruise more extensively you would have to look at a Dragonfly 32 or a 35.

Regarding the Luffe don't hesitate in buying the new 36.6 instead of the 37. I have no doubt it is a better boat and in what regards value, the 37 will lose value rapidly now that there is a new model.

Regards

Paulo
