Beneteau 265

Hi folks,

I recently bought a 1993 Beneteau 265 with a volvo in it. Im curious if this is a tall rig.

The brochures show a shoal draft keel and a deep keel but mine is in the middle at 4'2"
I should of measured the "P" but i measured the length of the mast, it came in at 34'10"

If any body has any info on these boats, suggestions tips etc i'd love to hear them.

Thanks

Beneteau 265

Re: Beneteau 265

Did you measure just the keel? If you did, I would guess it's the deep keel as the draft is to the waterline. Sailboatdata only shows one set of data for the rig so not sure if there's a standard and a tall rig. Best would be to just measure the I,J, P and E. I note this is a fractional rig.

The boat was in the trailer. I measured to the bottom of the keel then water line and subtracted. The boat was sold as a 4'2" keel

Re: Beneteau 265

So you measured from the waterline to the ground and the bottom of the keel to the ground and also got 4'2"? Since the listing in sailboatdata.com shows either 4.92' or 3.77' (which are stated as from the builder's brochure), something's off.

As to the rig, it sounds like the mast is down. You can easily get the P and E by measuring the distance on the mast from the band at the top to the boom fitting and the boom from the black band to the mast attachment fitting.

Re: Beneteau 265

I got up on the boat today and measured from the top of the mast (no black bands) to the goose neck and came up at 31'10". That will be at least 6" less as you would never hoist right to the top and the sail sits higher than the goose neck. That measurement does not jive with any of the "P" sailboat data or mauri pro or FX sails measurements. When i have a chance this weekend im going to measure the old mainsail.

I have a folder with documents in it that came with the boat showing the draft on the boat at 4'2". Ive found a few other Beneteau 265's with this draft as well. Its strange the brochure does not list it.

Re: Beneteau 265

I commissioned and bought a brand new Beneteau 265 tall rig (hull number 61). Tall rigs so far as I know (mine included) were all double spreader masts and therefore easy to identify. It was a phenomenal boat and my father to this day wishes that he had bought it from me instead of a Catalina 30.

This is "his" father speaking, and I do wish I had purchased his boat, especially in retrospect. If anyone has a Beneteau 265, and I would be especially interested in hul # 61, I would be an appreciative prospective owner (317-446-4661)
