We've all heard the crap about Beneteau NOT being suited for cruising from Keels falling off the Rudders breaking...And we know its not true.......
So in this post,
SHOW ME YOU BENETEAU, in all it cruising glory...............

Ours is a 1983 FIRST 42, that has been "Cruiser-fied" from solar and wind on one end to staysail on ther other.........

If I may vicariously participate...

Andy and Liz Copeland sailed their mid 80s B First 38 "Bagheera" around the world with their then-young family, and continue to cruise her today back at home in BC..

Friends are now on their 10th or 11th year doing the Caribbean chain on a B36.7, shorthanded in the trades (granted no ocean passages) but even so.. boat's in great shape still.

Friends of ours have been sailing our sister-ship Ocean Angel, throughout the Caribbean for the past five years. Fast, Safe, Comfortable amd quite handsome.

Don't worry about the crap you were served up in the other thread.

Your boat will be fine and go further than they have ever been.

Hello! We did a and got a Beneteau 515! It was an amazing experience as we never tried this brand before. Now we will definetely use it again and maybe even buy a second hand one for us!
