What year does Beneteau start using a bridge?

The late model Oceanis uses the bridge. I don't particular like it. It seems that the mechanical advantage is almost non existence for the main sheet. Without a traveler, making it more difficultly to obtain sail shape.

Does anyone have any experience with this design, any pros and cons for this?
