Quick and nimble, "Brown Eyed Girl", a Bruce Farr design, is based on a "light ship" displacement. The 36.7 is on the beamy side with an L/B of 3.1. It has a deep keel drawing 7 feet, 2 inches and weighing 3,748 pounds.

The interior layout certainly is oriented toward the fast family cruiser. There's a massive double quarter berth to port and a single quarter berth to starboard, both within their own enclosed spaces. The galley is on the skimpy side, but there is little else you can do when you want two quarter staterooms. The Nav station is generous. It takes up as much space as does the galley. Looking at this layout makes me wonder if there isn't a race version of the interior. This Beneteau model, works hard to be both racer and cruiser.

The deck design takes advantage of the wide stern and uses a large-diameter wheel. The cockpit coamings are cut away aft, and this allows the mainsheet traveler to extend out to within about 10 inches of the rail. Note that there is a teak toe rail on this model. There is a handy well in the foredeck for ground tackle. As usual, Beneteau has done a superlative job with its deck tooling. The cockpit seats are veneered in teak. The cabin trunk is highly radiused for a low-windage shape.

The rig is fractional with two sets of swept spreaders. The SA/D is 20.6. I find it curious that whoever drew the sail plan I am looking at tried very hard not to let the mainsail roach overlap the backstay. Usually sailmakers will ignore what the designer drew for sails unless you are working closely together on a custom project.

There is tankage for 79 gallons of water and 20 gallons of fuel. The standard auxiliary is a 29-horsepower Volvo diesel sail drive. Construction features a solid fiberglass hull as opposed to the typical cored hull you see in most boats of this type. The deck is balsa cored. The rudder, stock and blade are composite.

To my eye this appears to be a handsome, well maintained, all-round boat, with many recent upgrades to the sails, the deck, the electronics and the interior. If you want a fast, comfortable passage-maker, this is it.
