Re: Two too extremes! TaShing v Jeanneau

This has been extremely helpful, thanks all. Given realities of maintenance (I had an all wood boat back east), and somewhat tighter space, I think we'll very sadly back off the Baba. But I still want that high quality build and at least some solid woodwork instead of veneers. I'll move on to comparing that Jeanneau with the next contender -- a '89 Sabre Mark II.

I know I'll lose sleep over this one. May take a trip to visit Baba just to admire and yearn...

Re: Two too extremes! TaShing v Jeanneau

You mean no one has explained the meaning of BOAT! oh dear! even them lower built price point Jeanneaus take work! Trust me, I know!

Reality is, buy the boat that you like to look at, be in, be on etc. Just because you have the better built boat, you are buying used, so if the folks in front of you did not take care of it, it will be in worst shape than a lesser built boat, but WELL taken care of. I see examples of both at different boat yards I travel to and from, along at my marina.......

Yes, there is the absolute aesthetic of the better built, better designed, high quality materials, not only sailing performance....one pf the draws of the TaShings, Valiants, Sabres, Tartans....finding aesthetic + performance at affordable price is another question.
