This Beneteau example is unmatched with its extensive carbon sail wardrobe, the latest in B&G electronics, high performance running rigging, and it's racing successes over the past 6 years. Its also an outstanding blue water cruising yacht complete with 6 berths, bow thruster, 800 litres of water, 200 litres of fuel, a water maker, fridge, freezer, LED lights, a complete rewire, soar panels, shore power, inverter, dual chart plotters and the ability to sail singlehanded.

This yacht can be sailed as the ultimate couple / family cruiser or as an inner harbour / blue water offshore ocean racer. It’s a “go anywhere” yacht, category one rated for offshore sailing in the toughest of conditions.
