Beneteau 36.7

I asked the factory rep at the boat show this weekend and the gist of the response was their hoping for a softer rating down the road. He also mentioned that the 33.7 is no longer being built. A...

Beneteau 36.7

Sure looks like a nice boat for the money with very impressive foils, and hull shape. Any ideas why such a poor showing at Key West last week in a variety of wind conditions?
