Sabre 452 vs. J 46

I must say I envy you...Two very nice boats and it is hard to make a choice.
If I were you, I would prefer the J because of the deck hardware placement makes the boat easier to double hand and she is a better performer.A similar boat you should also look at is the new Dehler 47 which is a brand new design out of Judel-vorlig''s design team(Alinghi''s designer).She also has very nice cockpit layout and sail handling controls for double handed sailing.Probably she will cost a little bit less than the other two specially if you can make arrangements to take delivery in Europe.
Check her out at
Ok I am biased towards Dehler but I own a Dehler 36 and they are superb boats in every aspect.
Good Luck..
