Beneteau Cruising

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.........

Re: Beneteau Cruising

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.

Re: Beneteau Cruising

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.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

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.
