C&C 121 VS Beneteau First 40.7

The 40.7 will be at the Boston in water Boat show. The C+C will be at the Newport Boat Show this year so if your are in New England you will have a chance to see both for yourself. The C+C used a cored hull construction while the Beneteau has an Inner hull liner. These are 2 different good ways to build a strong lightwieght boat. The Beneteau method is less time consuming to construct and is one reason the the 40.7 cost about $70K less then the C+C. (fully equiped in the water) The C+C however has the perfered two cabin layout most people like for cruising while the three cabin layout in the 40.7 is better for a racing crew. These are two great boat but the question should be "Which one is better for me?" not which one is better. Ken
