This performance cruiser was designed by Jean Berret and Phillipe Starcke--Berret penned a stylish, fast hull and Starcke created a striking art deco-inspired interior done in his hallmark combination of gloss cherry wood, white canvas and brushed aluminum. Their combined efforts produced an immediate hit for Beneteau with the design winning "Best-of-Show" honors when first introduced at the Paris Boat Show in late 1988. Hundreds were built and the design remains very popular on the brokerage market today.
This particular example is the deep draft version (much preferable for the Bay), is very competitively priced and lying in a potentially transferable Sausalito Yacht Harbor slip--there's always along wait to get into the marina here so this is a material benefit if you're able to take advantage. Also, engine serviced in late April 2020 by List Marine and new 110% jib from Hood in June 2018 so she's ready to go!
