Yes, I agree with both of you. It seems that the Varianta has revue the target market and while the bigger boat seems to be pointed to club racing this one points to cruising and a truly unbeatable price, as you say, a 37ft for the price of a 32ft.
Contrary to the Varianta 44 this one has a good anchor locker (the winch is an extra) and a simple but very nice interior, much more nicer than the one on the 44.
The boat is simple but has all things you need to cruise. Of course, I would put an anchor winch, bigger sail winches, a lazy bag and a traveler, but even so the boat would be cheaper than anything on the market.
A very nice stability curve, a well built solid boat and a boat that sails very well with an agreeable interior...what we do need more for cruising?
I guess this one is going to sell much better than the 44. The base price is a bit over 70 000 euros without tax.
