Sorry.. you are wrong.
Sure, you are right as usual

The Jeanneau 30 has a B/D ratio of only 24%, the Jeanneau 33i has 32%, the Benetau First 30 has 29%, Dehler 29, 37%, Dufour 335 has 28%, Hanse 325 has 29%, A31 has 40%, the Elan 310 has 28%, Delphia 31 has 33%, Benteau Oceanis 25%, Bavaria 33 26%.

Most of these boats have or more draft or more modern and efficient keels that will make the difference in RM even more meaningful. To my knowledge there are no other 29/33ft as tender in the market as the Jeanneau 30.
