Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hi everybody,
I have once again been catching up on the thread after having spent most of the winter buried in deep snow with my snowboard.

I have been slightly dissapointed by the level of discussion regarding chines and old Dufour models but at the same time knows how discussions on internet forums easily can "take off".

Anyway, late last summer I was among the first to see and test sail the Oceanis 38. There was also a debate after that in regards to it having too low B/D-ratio.

After this the boat has been chosen as Boat of the year in Europe in it's class and got good reviews as a fun and perhaps also good performer in higher winds.

Any comments on this anomaly?

Best regards and may the summer come slowly, still some snowboarding to do.
