Re: Beneteau Oceanis 37 vs Jeanneau SO 379

One significant advantage of the Jeanneau is the option for dual rudders on the shoal keel boats. I have a SO 379 with this set up and it tracks beautifully. Great control regardless of heel angle. I hated to settle for the shoal draft, but with the Great Lakes evaporating rapidly, it seemed like a wise choice and the twin rudders helped to offset some of the performance lost with the shallow keel.
