There were 10 Beneteau 62's built. This one was built in 1995. A Bruce Farr design and built in France. The hull has been stripped and epoxyed and seems to be in good condition. I help him move it from Houston to Maine last summer and spent a total of 6 months crusing, mostly in Maine,. The boat is currently in Portsmouth, VA. When we left Houston area, it was blowing 30 - 40 knots with 15+ foot seas. The leg to the Dry Tortgus only took 4 days averaging 200 mile days. Since the boat has an 83' mast it was all offshore.
Thanks for the web referrals. Looks like the average seas don't get over 4 meters. It's the occasional 10 meter waves that may prove to be interesting.
