Thanks Paulo for the links. Hanse, Moody, Malo and other European boats in this class cost here about 200-350k more for the same boat as those at the boat show. The First 50 was not at the show therefore, I didn't report it. I can only report what I saw. I am not in the market for a new boat but my dockmate is. I will pass the First 50 onto him to consider. Thanks.
I am always up to checking out new boats that I haven't been on.
The travelers less system I cannot see being the racer in me I guess. I have sailed OPB's where the traveler didn't work and stuck in the middle position. Didn't work for me or the boat it seemed. But I am open to new designs to see how it works. Our hope is to sail the Benneteau to see how we like it.
