Ok I am getting very close to pulling the trigger. I am going to buy either a new 2005 Tartan 3700, with a carbon Fiber Mast, or a leftover 2003 with an alum Mast, or A 2005 Sabre 38. I am looking at pros and cons of these 3 boats. The first question: 1. If I go with the tartan, is it worth the roughly extra $20,000 to $25,000 that it will cost for the new boat for the Carbon Fiber mast. 2. Between the two boats, Tartan or Sabre, what is a better boat?
Which one is built better? which sales better? which one holds up better over time? Which one would be better for blues water sailing? Which one has better resale value?
I am planning on buying new, and outfitting the boat over time, so that I can use the boat right away for coastal cruising, and outfitting my self so that I get to know the boat better.
I Hope to hear from many of you, that have sailed and owned these two boats. Please let me hear what you liked and did not like with these boats.
Thank you ~~~~
