With Med's following caveat that one isn't doing something blind, this is really the best boat buying advice. You will need to love your boat in order to live with it and all its expense and occasional maintenance heartbreaks.

When we were looking for our current boat, we considered many different models, from semi-custom to the full on production boat we have. We quickly found ourselves comparing the higher end boats to some of the feature of the J54DS. It became evident that we were fixating, so we found a good one and bought her and have never regretted it.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

A phrf of 104 is smokin hot for a 40'r?!?! faster than CD's slug, but still not fast!! that would be in the 40-60 range. 66 for a 54' boat is also on the slower side. A Swan 45 is in the low doubles, or a -20 or some such thing. The club swan 42 is -60! with a 66, one is competing against a J109, C&C 115............

anyway, slaughter a C400 boat for boat with my 28' jeanneau yesterday, 2nd in class and OA in the first race, did not do well in the 2nd,altho 3rd in class, 3rd race 2nd in class and 3rd OA, again, beating ALL the 40' cruiser style boats, including the C400, 2 C420s...........

but I digress, I still like the idea of a Jeanneau for a smacktanic II, we need some smack talk onthe owners forum........LOLOL

I drives me dinghy!

Hey, hey, hey. That's fully dressed with a dinghy on the davits and the dodger up.

You can strip one down to a 42. She a coastal cruiser, not a racer, so I think that is pretty good. Can't compare her to race designs.
