I guess you might take a look and see if you'd get "more" boat for your money with a Tartan 3700 or a Sabre 386 than you would with a Jenneau 42 ....There's a lot "more" to a boat than a couple of extra feet of at each end. Hey, those extra feet really arn't a very useable part of a boat anyway...
If you haven't I'd suggest you at least take a look, so you appreciate the differences...Buying a new boat is a wonderful opportunity, and I hope you don't limit your choices by a big is better perspective...This as close as I'll get to being the first owner of a boat...
