I would like very much to have some input regarding the Tartan (37') and Tayana (37') in term of off-shore/coastal sailing, living aboard and maintenance...In case that you had the chance to cruise on both two boats, or to own them, I would very much have your inputs. Grossly, the Tayana is probably $20K higher than the tayana...is it really worth to go for the tayana?

Thank you so much,

Olivier

Oliver,

I'm certainly no expert... and I'm sorry nobody has attempted to answer your question, but...

I suggest you buy the one you can afford to own and get to appreciate her.

Five years from now, I doubt you'll wish you'd bought the other boat.

To Life!

Kirk

I sail a Tartan, and friends sail a Tayana... If the Tartan 37 has a centerboard it may allow you access to some anchorages that the Tayana will not... Otherwise, they are both good boats. Look at them both individually, and forget the brand name... Which one has more of what you are looking for? Which one calls to you? OH!... What does the surveyor say? What is in the budget? How have they been cared for? Which will best suit your needs?
