Baba 35 vs Tayana 37 vs Hans Christian 38

Hi all, these 3 boats are my shortlisted favorites for my first yacht purchase around $100,000 USD that I can get in Asia. And they have all been favorites (I wish i could afford a Baba 40. )
  • Baba 35 - asking $90,000
  • Tayana 37 - asking $120,000
  • Hans Christian 38 - asking $110,000
Hypothetically speaking which is the best buy?
Assume all are in the similar condition. Which one would win top yacht.

Some things that interest me.
  • Value for money given the asking price
  • Resale value.
  • Popularity (also for resale)
  • Which would be fastest ( i know they are all slow)
  • Maintenance upkeep. (I know they all have lots of teak)
  • Sailing performance, comfort at sea, motion etc
  • overall design, ease of use
  • And last but not least and probably the most contentious....which has the most beauty

I will post the links of the 3 yachts below ( i hope this is not against forum rules) and would appreciate your view on which one YOU would buy given the price and why? Pros cons.
Thanks from a newby
