Saw that the other day looking for the Salona and the Ovni owned other branded boat. Sheryl does like the Hanse's we have been in. They are pretty quick overall. Not sure the 325 would be the one, but maybe the new 355?!?! with out looking at the website. I need for my budget any how, something mid 30, she wants a shower that is separate from the head area. The jeanneau 36i 2 cabin is probably the "BEST" from what we have seen on the market. excepting maybe the older SO/SF37 which is really similar too. Can not recall on the SO/SF35. The newest 30 and 33 from Jeanneau do not appear to be too much less tight if you will than my current 85 Arcadia.
She likes the pics from the X's, Grand Soliel (sp?) too. There is a 40'r or two floating around here. Been on one of those. Then again, ANY 40 something has more room than out 30, should be 28' and the mid 30's we look at.
Yes, my wife wants the same (the separated shower) but with me she is not going to have any luck
. Fast boats just don't have that.
I don't know of any big production 35 or 36ft on the market with a separated shower, but I know of one that is coming soon
That's the new Farr/BMW Bavaria.
Marty, I do like Grand-Soleils and if I could chose a boat no matter the price, the GS 43 and the x 43 would be on my short list. They are not because they are just too expensive, even if used (with few years).
The Bavaria has some advantages over French big production boats of the same price. They have a much better Dispacement/Ballast ratio, more storage space and mutch more options, including the ones that can make it a fast boat. I agree that the French boats (Jeanneau and Oceanis) have a better interior design, meaning they look nicer, even if the Bavaria is more functional and has more storage and tankage. The Hanse is a more expensive boat.
