Jeanneau SO439 & DS44 vs Beneteau Oceanis 45 vs Bavaria Vision 46

Hi Sailors,

I am from HONG KONG (HK) who is planning to buy a new boat within 40ft to 46ft range. I'll use this boat to take my kids out in the weekends and will join some local and Asian Regattas such as HK-Philipines, HK-Thailand, HK-Taiwan...etc and I've no plan to cross any ocean.

Having visit some boat shows and browsing from the internet. Considerate about my budget, I finally come up with 4 choices:
1) Jeanneau Sun Oddessy 439 (SO 439)
2) Jeanneau DS 44 (DS44)
3) Beneteau Oceanis 45 (O45)
4) Bavaria Vision 46 (V46)

SO 439 seems better in performance. DS44 and V46 seems more comfortable and O45 have the largest cockpit and swimming platform.

Would anyone give me some advise on the above boats by comparing their 1) performance, 2) comfort & 3) price? Or any other suggestion in the same price range?

Thanks a lot,
Joseph

Checked all the boats , personally would go after V46 , which seems more though and comfortable at the same time . Very good sailing plans and easy to sail short handed and have a very good cockpit area for a family cruise . Except 439 , have sailed with all and liked V46 most which has given me the sense of security with my kids on board so have a very relaxed 15 days on board . Seen at the boat show 439 but never sailed, they say good things about sailing performance but personally do not have any idea ..

Jeanneau or Beneteau are my preferences. Although Bavaria is a good boat, the drives of the Volvo are more prone to fail early. Yanmar is much better.

All four boats are well designed and in the same general category. Thus I think that you are best served by choosing the boat that you think is nicest looking and best suited for your intended sailing area and style.

I prefer the Jeanneau styling over that used in Beneteau and by Bavaria and that's why I'm on my 3rd one - but that's just a personal opinion.

I spend most of my life aboard in the cockpit, and in your part of the world you will most likely do the same. Thus the ergonomics and size of the cockpit is going to be a very high priority, and don't forget that you will need a bimini and perhaps a dodger, and some boat designs don't lend themselves very well to adding those items.

It's like whether to buy a Ford, Chevy, Lincoln or Citroen. There are benefits and drawbacks to each.

I do like the look of the 439. Never sailed one but as Zanshin suggests, they are all fairly similar. I'm ambivalent about it but the Wombet does not like those "cats eye" windows as per the DS and the Vision so they'd not make the cut. I've always liked the look of Bavarias but invariably been disappointed by the reality. Beneteau arch is not well integrated into the overall design. I'd end up with the 439.

Shame no one thought to answer the poor bugger a couple of years back.

You're right fuzzy,

Too bad the poor bugger was not answered back then. But, we all know the Jeanneau is the better bestest boat of the bunch. Not that I am biased or anything like that am I?!?!?!?!?
