Beneteau differences

Over the years Beneteau has constructed a wide range of ''lines of boats''. Some like thier custom series are very high quality boats. The Beneteau First series are intended to be a step up from their more basic series. The Oceanis, Idylle and ''number'' series are more basic generally lack the higher quality building details, and performance of the First series. Build and finish quality seems to be significantly better on the First series with the posible exception of the ''First Class'' series which were out and out race boats.

Of the fare offered by the big three boat builders; Beneteau, Catalina, and Hunter, Beneteau''s First Series seems to be a big step up.
