Boat tests: Salona 41, Dufour 36P, Grand Soleil 39.

Starting by an unusual one coming from the other side of the world, from the main sailing NZ magazine and those guys know one or two things about sailing, a sail test on the Salona 41. What do you think was their opinion on the boat?:

Then two from the German magazine "Yacht" regarding the Dufour 36p that shows why the boat won the title of 2013 European performance cruiser:

Dufour 36: Clever High Performer -

and another one now about the Grand Soleil 39 and I guess that it explains why the GS 39 did not had a chance against the Dufour. By the way "stick" means mast that's how good the translation is

Grand Soleil 39: Nifty, charming and fast -
