We bought a Beneteau 43 in the fall and love her. She's fast and comfortable. This is our 4th Beneteau so that should tell you something, we like their boats. We always like the lines of the Jenneau and looked at the 44 at the shows but just didn't care for the quality of the materials in the cabins. Thought the woodwork looked cheap and was mis-matched. Also thought the ergonomics of the cockpit were less than that of the B43. Haven't sailed the Jenneau so can't comment on that aspect of it. Good luck with your decision.
