Re: Beneteau Oceanis 37 vs Jeanneau SO 379

If the jeanneau costs there 20 000 more I would go with the Oceanis 37. The fact that the boat has already some years makes it less expensive. It is a great design and a good sailing boat.

You are the only one that know if you need a bigger and slightly faster boat. If you need it buy the 409, not the 41ds, unless your wive really makes a point in having the king size aft cabin

Re: Beneteau Oceanis 37 vs Jeanneau SO 379

Hello,

I ended up buying a Beneteau Oceanis 41 and am very happy with that choice. In my research, I felt that for that size of boat, the Beneteau offered tremendous value when comparing to boats from Jeanneau, their sister company.

Re: Beneteau Oceanis 37 vs Jeanneau SO 379

I just joined Sailnet recently and I also live in the DC area (French too) and looking for either Jeanneau, Benneteau or Dufour (potentially). Did you consider the Jeanneau 41 in your decision? And also if I may ask, where did you park your new boat? What is the best Marina close to DC? I am planning on buying a boat this fall.
thx
JL

Re: Beneteau Oceanis 37 vs Jeanneau SO 379

Just got off a chartered Beneteau 37. Great boat but the one thing that has me perplexed is the 15 gallon holding tank. With five people aboard (four ladies) we needed a pump out far more often that I would have liked. If this is important to you for multi day cruising, please make sure your decision has tis in mind.

Well a 4 day charter one would expect to be 3 miles out so you can pump over then. But in a lake or other no discharge zones can be a problem.

Re: Beneteau Oceanis 37 vs Jeanneau SO 379

One significant advantage of the Jeanneau is the option for dual rudders on the shoal keel boats. I have a SO 379 with this set up and it tracks beautifully. Great control regardless of heel angle. I hated to settle for the shoal draft, but with the Great Lakes evaporating rapidly, it seemed like a wise choice and the twin rudders helped to offset some of the performance lost with the shallow keel.

I guess that today you are talking about the Oceanis 38 that had replaced the 37?

I am not sure if I understand why you prefer the 41DS over the Jeanneau 409 or if you are interested on a 41 why are you not considering the Oceanis also?

a bigger boat would be faster, more comfortable at sea and more expensive with a lot more interior space. First you should decide if you want and need a 41ft sailboat and then choose among them.

Re: Beneteau Oceanis 37 vs Jeanneau SO 379

I had the same choice/problem.
I choose the Oceanis 37 Limited. It is a beautiful boat especially with the Limited interior. It is a little roomier too and a little cheaper than the SO 379.
I have not taken delivery yet so I cannot comment on the performance of either
boat. It seems to me the blog I read saying that the Oceanis is a little better off
the wind and the SO 379 a little better against the wind, is a fair assessment.
