Great thread. These boats interest me quite a bit. Paulo thanks for adding to the mix. I agree with the OP regarding the travelers on the cockpit soles. Besides the obvious it makes me wonder how one would enclose/cover the cockpit with a biminy or something a bit bigger.

I noticed Jeanneau's new 379 has an option for a swing keel and comes with twin rudders, both of which I find VERY APPEALLING in my search for a boat I can travel worldwide in. Does anyone know if Jeanneau would accomodate these same two features in the 409?

Thanks to all for contributing.
