In Topic: Used Carrol Farr 395, Bene First 40 or Aerodyne 38?

I should add- I'm not sure if ours was a Carroll boat or not...

Over the last 2 years I've raced on a 395 and the aerodyne... Given my druthers, I would have preferred the owner kept the 395 as I felt it was a better all around sailing boat... Was much better uphill, and I felt gybes were faster downhill because of the aerodyne's shroud base... As far as quality of build goes I personally didn't see any major difference- both seemed pretty posh below...

Ultimately I like them both, but I would lean toward the 395...
