Re: Beneteau Cruising

Check the entries to the Pacific Puddle Jump. That rally lets you start anywhere, at any time and go to anywhere in the South Pacific so I think quite representative of the actual cruising community. The first stop from anywhere is 3,000 NM so a real test. Beneteau is by far the most common boat listed. Are there better boats? I'm sure there are. A friend had a budget from between $100-$150k for a boat, a nice amount, wanted it less than 20 years old. He'd heard the stories about Beneteau so was considering the Pacific Seacraft, a great line of boats. For his budget, he could get a 31-37 foot Pacific Seacraft or a 42-47 foot Beneteau.
