Dufour 365 vs Beneteau 373

Jeff .. To be fair ... If you have NOT had a chance to take a close look at the new Dufours ... suggest you stop opining to say that you like the build quality on the Beneteau First boats better.

You seem to know your stuff, but an informed opinion on the Dufours would be of most interest.

Take the time to check both the Dufour Performance and Grande''Large Series and post your views. The boats are getting great reviews in Europe and the Performance Series are winning a lot of races.

Dufour 365 vs Beneteau 373

I also prefer the Dufour.

The Dufour is built to a higher quality level than the Beneteau and is also a really nice very responsive sailing boat.

The many construction and design advantages are discussed on the various web sites. You can also look up Felci Yacht Design on the Internet and see just who is behind the engineering.

I would highly recommend trying to sail a Dufour if you can.

How do you say "Just do it" in French?

Beneteau 373

I am also thinking in getting a Beneteau 373, but I am concerned by several reviews about excessive helm and easy broach. Anyone with experience on this?
