Two guest cabins aft featuring a double berth, hanging lockers all close to the central head and bathroom. Wood and upholstery in light oak colors , spotlights integrated in the deck liner.

The main salon bench seat can be moved under the table to enable the passage of sail bags and gear as far forward as the cabin.  An abundance of storage areas, and a functional chart table with all its lockers and shelving make passage making comfortable.

  • Crumb collector in flooring.
Engine Mechanical
  • The Sail Drive diesel engine is mounted in a ventilated and soundproof compartment, on a frame that is structurally part of the hull It was chosen following B?n?teau specification requirements (reliability, low vibration, reduced emission of harmful gases, compactness).
  • It is equipped with sea water filters.
  • The propeller (Volvo) is foldable (duckbeak) to reduce underwater resistance and thus improve boat performance. Its size is related to its horse power.
  • The starter and control panel is located outside near the wheel.
  • The Spinlock Flush Racing engine control lever is built-in to the sides of the cockpit.
  • The rotomoulded diesel fuel tank, located under the portside stern berth, has a 200 L capacity and is equipped with an electric gauge, a primary filter and
    a remote stop valve. Its aluminium filler hole is located on deck to the rear of the cockpit.
  • A 12 V - 110 A battery is specifically for the use of starting the engine.
Cabin Accommodation
  • This version of the accommodation plan has 3 cabins (1 to the bow and two aft) and 2 heads.
  • It facilitates movement from one part of the boat to another, has great storage capacity and comfort and a sober atmosphere.
  • The woodwork is in pear-tree coloured Mukali wood with fiddles and mouldings in solid wood.
  • The light colour of the woodwork gives a greater feeling of space.
  • Storage: There are several storage spaces making life easier aboard. They are equipped with ventilation systems. (Some of the storage lockers are "removable" to help
    lighten the boat, which is necessary for regattas).
  • The locker catches are of the spring-loaded type.
  • Doors and door frames: Communicating door frames in moulded wood are very
    wide, allowing ease of movement throughout the boat.
  • The doors are locked by lever type spring locks, with independent locking device.
  • Flooring and leather work:
  • The cabin mattresses have removable covers (standard
  • version: ecru and blue spots) and the standard saloon cushions covered in undyed leather (Fiesta one foam) are easy to look after and resistant.
  • The floorboards are made of varnished hydropont (marine quality) with a thin black line. They have an excellent finish, and are silent, easy to maintain, strong
    and insulating.
  • The hull is made of solid GRP laminate. Hull capping and occasional reinforced areas (keel, rudder, chain plates, deck line), strengthen the overall structure.
  • The hull is optimally protected from osmosis phenomena, thanks to the application of vinylester resin precoating.
  • A structural solid laminate inner structural grid is achieved through the use of biaxial and unidirectional material. It is glued to the hull and randomly laminated.
    Its structural function is important, since it makes it possible to pick out all the pressure and stress points (chain plate, shroud, keel, and rudder tie rods, etc.) guaranteeing even distribution and less strain on the hull. It also ensures a good finish to the bilges and simplifies cleaning and maintenance.
  • The structural bulkheads made of marine plywood are sealed to the hull for extra rigidity.
  • The hull is white or grey in colour, with grey livery.
  • The deck is built in sandwich (fibreglass/balsa/GRP) for an optimal rigidity-lightness ratio.
  • There are solid laminate reinforcement areas under the deck gear (winches, tracks, chain plates, cleats).
  • All the working and movement areas on the deck have been given a non-skid gel coat pattern.
  • The whole of the deck has been given a solid laminate inner lining, including the structural beams, which are sealed to the deck to give a perfect finish (integrated
    lighting, finish, access to deck gear fitting screws, etc.)
