Beneteau Sense 43 Review by SAIL

By Charles J. Doane • Posted: Jan 24, 2012


That Beneteau is fully committed to coming out of the Great Recession with all guns blazing is amply demonstrated by the fact that it introduced not one, but two boats in its new line of Sense cruisers during the 2010-11 boat show season. This 43-foot offering doesn’t have as many bells and whistles as its big sister, the new Sense 50, but it does demonstrate that the Sense design concept can translate successfully into a significantly smaller hull.
