Beneteau 235

Your post surprises me. Most of the 235''s that I have seen have had a swing keel and been rated in the high 170''s to low 180''s. 204 should be a fair rating although I don''t know how the wing keel compares with the swing keel. The wing probably offers more drag in light air orgoing down wind and poorer pointing ability than the swing keel but should be more stabile in a breeze.
