Princess 366 V\'s Fairline Targa 39

I have been looking over the last few months at 37- 40ft sports cruisers.
The short list is a Princess 366 with KAD 42, full service history,but needs updated electronics, heating & bow thruster

Or Fairline Targa 39 with KAD 42, slight jaded service history, but with lots of extras.
Buy the time I include the update to the Princess, not much differance in cost
Your views could be the deciding factor.
The forum is open for all comments?.

Looked at the T37 found it tight on storage, and the lower saloon quite small compared with the T39.
The 366 has a lazerette thats like a small garden shed.
Whats the views on the Princess handling/sea worthyness compared to the T39.

Ther is a 366 in out marina. Lovely boat and it has been in some pretty rough stuff and as far as I know handles it well.

I've been out in a P366R in some really big seas and it was quite superb!

Lots more room in the T39 though (and a central bed in fwd cabin instead of offset).

Both good boats but the T39 a little slab sided in comparison (although that's where all the headroom comes from of course).
