Early viewing of this boat is strongly recommended as small Beneteaus are always popular – and this really is a very attractive and well maintained example of a much missed model.
None of the big manufacturers (including the mighty Beneteau) are interested in building quality small sailing yachts any more, so you do have to turn the clock back to find these true gems – a very manageable and compact yacht but with proper “big boat” layout and quality.
An ideal starter boat – or for those enlightened ones who realise less can often be so much more – a superb boat to downsize to.
