A very different Beneteau! Designed by German Frers, the Idylle series of yachts are very different in hull shape to their more modern counterparts a much deeper V-hull with a modified fin keel, moderate freeboard and a large cockpit. The smooth and comfortable ride this provides makes for much better passage making. With a spacious interior, this boat is excellent for the liveaboard, weekend sailor or serious cruiser. She has two cabins, two heads, a large salon and nice galley complete with refrigeration.  She is well-equipped and ready to go with St-700 Raytheon autopilot, air conditioning and great cockpit and sailing performance.
