Vessel Walkthrough

The cockpit features a fixed table with dual fold up leaves and center storage space, generous seating with new teak inlays, and plenty of storage space.  The cockpit is easy to move around and functional for sailing, and a great place to gather when it''s time to relax and recount the day''s sailing.

Step through the companionway and you will feel the warmth of Beneteau''s signature beautifully finished woodwork in the main salon.

The spacious salon has a large dinette to starboard with ample seating for your family and/or friends, a settee to port, and a forward facing chart table with plenty of room for electronics, charts, or a lap top. 

The galley is aft of the salon on starboard, and is a great space to prepare meals ur just a sandwich for lunch while under way.

There is a large master cabin forward with a centerline berth and its own head with separate shower.  A generous hanging locker and plenty of drawer and cabinet storage provides plenty of space for clothing and gear.

The aft cabin has a large athwartships berth, plenty of light and ventilation, a hanging locker, and lots of storage space.  It also has its own door to the aft head for privacy.

Hull & Deck

Cored GRP sandwich construction for stiffness, thermal and acoustic insulation and lighter weight. Solid fiberglass reinforcements in high load areas. Integral unidirectional GRP deck beams for added strength. Main bulkheads bonded 360° to the hull and deck for rigid torsional and compressive strength. Internal hull/deck joint with chemical and mechanical bonding complete the structurally superior build of this boat.
