Yikes. To get some general feedback, you might define your expectations for the boat, how you want to use it and what you wany it to be, otherwise expect at best "not as good as some, but better than many''.
For real meat, I''d say share the key survey results on the Beneteau email list, and see what owners have to say. Additionally you should scan the Beneteau archives - assuming that list has been active, whatever is worth knowing about the boat has pabably been discussed by owners.
(My personal Beneteau experience: good performance, good construction, too many berths all too small, steel keel is an annual pain unless someone has properly epoxied it.)
