Go for the boat which better describes the kind of sailing you do... Bene..more creature comforts, wider salon and cockpit....Tartan..better made..better sailing over all...Fractionalk spreadrrs vs non.

The elctronics on the Bene are newer...maybe unless the Tartan has been constantly maintained and upgraded in which case many of the Tartan systems could actually be newer than the Bene.

I know this will get me in trouble

So heres the deleama...do I want the newer girl with the fat ass wide body for her size and stubby nose who looks like everybody else...or do I want the classy girl...who is a little older with more experience, better looker, takes care of herself and is more of an individual.
