Ben 42 CC

Have had mine for 2 yrs. This boat is Benteau's version of a more blue water capable vessel. Absolutely love the boat, plenty of space, decent storage, well appointed and outfitted. Speaking under correction it seems this hull is narrower and less flat bottomed than other models. Even empty our Benny has far less heel than many other production boats out there, partic in 20-25 knot winds. The engine room is comparitively huge and allows easy access, has dual entrances. In mast furling, and high quality fittings and good water/fuel storage make this the boat for us - although we plan Carib sailing only.... for now.
