Well, some of this discussion will depend upon your budget. It seems to me that these three boats are each in different price categories (or at least for my budget they are). The C&C can be had in the $100k-$125k range, the Bristol in the $140k-$175k range and the expensive Hylas in the $175-$225k range. If money isn't an object and you don't give us any other criteria than "cruising boat", I'll vote for the Hylas.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Welcome to sailnet....

A good honest answer...also, I think you spelled the title wrong in the other thread... And I think the mods deleted it anyway...

BTW, what I said in the other thread was if money is no object... and the three boats are in equally good shape...get the Hylas. The three boats cover a fairly wide range of prices and design capabilities.

My negative on the Hylas is I'm Canadian and if I ever bring her back to Canada I have to pay duty because it is made in Tiawan (not NAFTA friendly)
But they sure are a nice boat!

Jeff-

Remember, I said that they Hylas would be the best choice if MONEY WAS NO OBJECT... which means you could pay the duty...
