Re: new boat

Two gorgeous boats, both by great designers -- the Tayana by Bob Perry, and the Moody by Bill Dixon. The Tayana is a bit more classical in layout and appearance; the Moody a bit more modern. What's your taste?

I'm guessing the Moody will have a bit more performance; the Tayana is a bit heavier. Both are very comfortable, beautifully finished, premium boats, with almost exactly the same layout below.

What a choice!
