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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Again, lucky You = sailing area at least on the east coast

Definitely get down to Annapolis and look at the boats hard at the dealers, the Charter companies will have them in the fleet too & marinas where owners (if approached properly) will be happy to show off their boat, answer all your questions and might even be willing to offer a ride.
You can also contact area sailing / yacht clubs who have beer can / other racing going on where skippers are always looking for crew even if only rail meat.

Shopping - Fun and costs 0$.......
I hope to get a chance to sail on the 439 & 509
