I'm close to purchasing a Prestige 34 (hardtop) but I have one major concern. A couple of people have mentioned to me recently that the gel coat on the Jeanneau motor boat range is not as hard wearing or robust as some of the other major brands. I assume therefore that the gel coat application is not as thick as it could be. Does anyone on here have experience themselves or heard of others having concerns or troubles with the gel coat....particularly on the current Prestige sportscruiser range. Thanks in advance.
Hi my Prestige 34 is 6 years old now and I have had no issues with it (apart from a few stress cracks). It is checked every year for osmosis and has not shown any signs as yet. I'd say they stand up to the mark.
