chef2sail will become famous soon enough
Send a message via AIM to chef2sail are right about the Tartan, but the older ones pre 1998 are great boats. Rawkdawg is looking for a boat in the $200,000 range it appears. Cant touch a new Tartan for that anyway. It is sad what Tratn has done to itself, but I didnt think Sabre, Calber or HR has those problems.

My point is more aimed at trying to compare a Sabre, Calber, HR to a Jenneau. They come from two different worlds, so it what do you intend usung it for

Buy new for 200,000 a 40 Jenneau sailboat, I do not think that in 10 years that boat will worth even $100,000, if you look how they depreciate and their resale value. Buy a 10 year old HR and in 10 years it will still be worth in excess of 100,000

Understand I am in no way putting down the Jenneaus or anyother production boat. Many friends who are good sailors have them.
