Jeanneau SO 379 vs. Bavaria Cruiser 37

7266 Views 10 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  TakeFive

We are planning to purchase a new, 37-40' boat that is very easy to sail (single-handed at times), since we have two very young kids.

We saw two new boats, Jeanneau SO 379 and Bavaria Cruiser 37, at New England Boat Show that are very close to what we need.

Can you help us with selecting one from these two?

Oh, My! This is interesting.
- the very same saildrive is worse on one boat than the other.
- two burners on the stove is a serious issue. We have to have at least 3, and a oven.
- ....

any further comments?

Arch, I better to run for shelter now.

The Jenneau series is for charter, bare bone. Some of them are good anyhow.
The Bav ... the jury is still out.

Not much difference - it is still the same question: What do you want?
Do not look much for the prices, not at first.
How are you going to use the boat?
Most of us are doing coastal cruising. What does that mean for deck layout and internal layout?

Is it important for you to be fast? Racing? (I bet both are far from bad).


PS: Cheshire cat issue.
