The Beneteau design team worked with Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design and the Nauta Design Group to develop this new flagship of the Beneteau fleet. The design brief specified an elegant coachroof with good visibility, interior volume and comfort, ease of handling, and good performance offshore.

Belowdeck, the long coachroof windows combine with the hull ports to allow lots of natural light to come into the space. They also provide good views around the yacht. The spacious seagoing galley can handle any appliance. The standard layout provides for three cabins and a large main saloon, with an optional forepeak cabin for a crew.

The cockpit features dual steering stations and a large table that is designed for in-port entertainment. The rig and all deck gear have been designed to produce easy sail trim when the yacht is being sailed shorthanded. Wide decks with plenty of handrails make movement easy and safe.
