tweitz I have a fairly new Beneteau Oceanis 323 with a lifting keel. The lifting keel option comes with twin rudders rather than a single rudder, in part to assure that there is enough rudder surface without making the rudder deeper than the keel. Although it is less important to most people in my sailing area (Northeastern United States), I do recall seeing a reference in one of the European brochures that the boat will settle nicely on the keel stub and the twin rudders in a drying out situation. I know the lifting keel option has been around for a few years, so it might be well worth your while to explore it.

best get a wing or oceanus

I have a small wing keel B, and I think the wing would be better to rest the boat, but I have seen in moderately extensive research a beneteau sort of laid out to rest evenly, some of the oceanus models I think..try to call beneteau they are always most helpful.

Seeking Advice On Beneteau Keel Types

I am at this moment taking the plunge into yacht ownership and one boat that I'm intrested in is the Beneteau First 32s5, however I live and sail on the midwest coast of Ireland and whereas its a great place to sail, we have little or no marinas locally so mooring is of the swinging variety or on a drying peir wall. The latter is my problem, Where I like the way the 32s5 sails and its bright interior and layout, the 15yo model I've seen has a bulb keel and I'm concerened how it will take the occasional drying out. Does it put to much stress in the hull? Any experinces or stories would be welcome.
