The Azzuree has got rather mixed tests both in german yacht and in the english magazines. They all recommend the lighter but more expensive version.
Displacement differs just by 200kg: Fast Cruiser 7,100kg vs Cruiser 7,300kg. Better results due to draft (2.6m vs 2.16m) and sail area (97sqm vs 90sqm) difference. But there is a performance package for Cruiser: Aluminum performance mast + 2.60 m Performance keel with lead bulb + Rod Rigging (+10k euro). Not sure if 50k euro price difference is justified.
p.s. Maybe someone has to share this German magazine test? Azuree 33/Azuree 40: Scharfe Sache mit scharfen Kanten
