There is certrainly no comparison in build quality and ruggedness. The Baba is the better built boat and will hold its value much better. If you will sail it on the Bay you will enjoy its power and speed in a breeze. I can assure you the performance will surprise you. But they don't back up very well and you will take my name in vain the first few times.

You are taking on a lot of maintainence with the Baba. Some have more teak than others but they all have plenty of teak.

Ta Shing means "Big Star" in Mandarin.
"Baba" is the Taiwanese knickname for Bob Berg. The guy who started the project. Baba means "father" in Mandarin.
