This boat need to be good because the 409 is really a benchmark.

Before saying something about this boat I would like to hear your comments so please say what you think about it. Do you like it?

Oceanis 41 / Oceanis / Sailing Yachts - BENETEAU


I like the boat okay I guess...but I'm perplexed. So was Hunter the visionary on the whole arch thing? Hunter leading Beneteau?

Actually, I'm just not diggin' the arch...on any boat. Yes, it does clean up the cockpit a great deal (I remember commenting on the amount of line in Giu's cockpit back in the day), but it just looks a little goofy.
