Jeanneau 57

If proof were needed of the high standard of modern production boatbuilding, Jeanneau’s new flagship would be high on the list of exhibits. It features a bunch of nice detail touches that not too long ago would have been the preserve of much more expensive yachts. Philippe Briand drew the lines for this express cruiser, which combines a powerful triple-spreader rig, refined underwater lines, and a capacious interior with several layout choices. LOA 56ft 8in, LWL 50 ft. 4 in., beam 16ft 4in, draft 8ft 2in, displacement 42,990 lbs., sail area 1571 sq. ft., design Philippe Briand Yacht Design, construction Beneteau Group (Jeanneau’s parent company).
