Stevens 47

For the most part the Stevens 47, the Stevens are a better boat in almost all ways than mid- 40 foot range Morgans, Endeavours and Hardins. While some of the differences are subjective and relates to your own tastes and goals, in real tangable ways, the Steven''s offers better build quality with better materials, in most cases a more sophisticated hull design, offering better sailing performance and comfort of motion and nicer detailing.

Whether that is worth $70-90K more is hard to say. Beyond that, as you get up to the $200K range there are a lot of really great boats out there.
