I have owned a Catalina 250, a Catalina 320, a Catalina 380, and now a Catalina 400. My pops has a Tayana 42.
Here is both boats rafted together, with the family jumping off the back. This pic actually shows you several advantages of a production type boat: comfort, room on the transom, lots of hatches, etc. You certainly cannot do this from the Tayana 42!!! But, I like the T-V-42. SOlid, solid boat.
Here is my old 380, right before a trip to the Tortugas...
