C&C 121 VS Beneteau First 40.7
A new boat will be rewarding all right. Rewarding to the broker.
I looked at the C&C and I cannot warm up to it but the fairness of the hull (and the Tartans) was far superior to the Beneteau 36()<---something. The Beneteau had the worst case of orange peel on a new hull that I have ever seen.
This is a big deal and you have a lot of money to spend here. Find Jeff H''s email and get him to respond to this. Jeff and I really like performance boats.
Like I said if draft were not a reqirement I would buy a C&C 40 if it were I would buy a Tartan 40 CB or if a newer boat a Tartan 4200.
But I would only PHRF race on a casual basis. If I raced full time then the J boats need consideration.
I have found the J32 (cruising) to be an empty suit. It is oversold by J''s marketing and will not perform as they claim.
