I'm planning to buy a yacht and sail across pacific.
I have 373, 393 or 37 in mind (ex charter
yachts). They are just within my budget
My question is regarding beneteau
37's sailing characteristics. Never seen B37 but according to data, B37 is very fat and has low displacement
of 6.35t, compared to 373's 6.6t, making D/L only 158 compared to 373's D/L 183.
I'm worried this might result in very uncomfortable sailing experience in some rough sea and strong wind
. I'm not expecting something like heavy long keel
bluewater yachts but like to know how it is different from B373.
I'll appreciate your opinions, experiences on B37 or expected seaworthiness, compared to B373.
