Pros:
Cons:

We purchased this model and took delivery 5 months ago. We find the boat to be a good liveaboard boat - the largest 36 footer we looked at with space and storage equal to some 40+ footers. We added Cruiseair and some instruments, but went with the standard roller furling main and jib. The boat handles predictably and is easily sailed by one. We've sailing in winds up to 30 kts in the Chesapeake and have found it to be forgiving and enjoyable in all conditions. Some may prefer the traditional main, but the ability to reef easily from within the cockpit in windy conditions far outways the loss in sail power from a traditional main.

Took delivery in March, Sailed the Chesapeake all season and loved it. Just took her out and stored her for the season on the 15th of December. Plans are to have back in on March 1st and use her more next year. Great boat.

Pros:
Cons:

As of 2000, this model started in 1998, is Beneteau's smallest center cockpit model, and all are built in France. Designed by Berret/Racoupeau with styling by Brian. Strengths: Excellent use of room with 3 hanging lockers, and good storage throughout. Well designed systems (plumbing, electrical, etc.) and fairly easily serviced. Well crafted interior and quality materials used throughout. Roller furlers make single handling very easy. Very good liveaboard and extended cruiser. Weaknesses: Limited headroom (if over 6') and this also translates to short bunks. Smallish keel will result in some leeway (also due to higher freeboard). 27hp diesel could be a little small for 'extended' trips. Since built in Europe, Americans will have to contend with metric hoses and fastners. Cabin lights, while well placed, have halogen bulbs with very limited longevity.

Pros:
Cons:

We bought her new, loved the interior and space, as I am only 5'7" the 6' headroom was not an issue. Large aft berth, but too firm mattress. Joiner work is good.

Easily handles the Chesapeake with no pounding or stalling. Really liked the easy sail (roller furl jib and main) handling, and as a cruiser she is fairly quick.

Not a Swan or a Sabre, but an excellent boat nonetheless. Better than average quality when compared to the peers.

Pros: My wife loves this boat - and that's important, very important
Cons:

I'm very pleased with this boat, I took my wife to see a Westerly Seahawk, but we came back with a Beneteau 36cc. She's 11 years old and she scrubs up lovely after a bit of Vim and polish. The windlass has just packed-up and the cabin heater is getting intermittent, but at this age you have to expect to spend a penny or two.
I'm pleased with the sailing qualities but the furling main has caused a few moments with the main sail jamming as it was pulled in and out.
I like the engine compartment, plenty of room and very well laid out.
And as for living accommodation, it's great and beautifully finished.
