Thoughts on a Beneteau 42CC

Driven by marketing strategy rather than marine engineering design, Bennys are a flat bottom boat compared with the other hulls you mentioned. The result is theoretically m ore speed, a result of lighter weight moreso than hull shape. Given the lower displacement and hull shape, it isn''t surprising these boats pound much more than the others.
