What would you buy for $100,000?
I believe both sides have valid arguments concerning the Benehuntalinas.
Some of them are better than the others,like First series in beneteau line(40.7 winning a lot of PHFR races)some of them are more suited to coastal sailing or some of them maybe better suited to entertainment dockside..
You generally get what you pay for, this applies to resale values as well.
If you are a sailor in heart, I would suggest get a boat that can move in light airs because this is what you are going to get in the Bay and Intercoastal most of the time in the sailing season.Apart from that any boat that you like will serve the purpose of sailing in the Bay regardless of the builder.
