Re: Tell Me About Jeanneaus

Jeanneaux that I've come across in the past have all seemed somewhat better built than their super-refined & tightly engineered Beneteaux cousins. The mooring cleats were a tad bigger; the fittings a touch heftier; the door hinges & latches more substantial. This may or may not be a good thing, depending upon what you're looking for. Things may have changed some since Beneteau took over Jeanneau, but Jeanneau's base is still up by the English Channel and North Sea, while Beneteaux come from the relatively warmer waters of France's west coast.
