Re: Help With Boat Selection
The Tayana is the biggest and has the best "numbers" for performance. More than 200' more sail than the Crealock.
The Crealock is the smallest by far - 1/3 smaller than the Tayana - and has middling numbers - it's the best looking IMHO.
The Cabo has numbers getting into motorsailer territory D/L pushing 400 and Sa/D of 14.
A quick look at YW shows;
The PS ranging from $80K to $195K averaging around $130K
The Tayana ranges from $36K to $132K averaging around $80K
The IP ranges from $74K to $144K averaging around $100K
There are also 2 to 3 times as many Tayanas available.
To me it's a no-brainer - the Tayana is the biggest, cheapest, probably the fastest and it was designed by the best designer. IIRC it is also one of his personal favourites of his designs.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
