Re: Jeanneau 42 vs. Catalina 42

IMHO the Jenn is a better looking boat but if you are living aboard I'd go for the Cat - that pullman cabin is a BIG improvement over a V-berth for a couple.

In terms of build quality I think it's a wash. A circumnavigation uses up a lot of boat - have the sails, rigging, engine etc. been redone since?
