Since the phenomenally successful launch of the Beneteau 49 and 46 this past fall, Beneteau has continued to strive to lead by bringing the most exciting designs to sailing, and they now announce the arrival of the all new Beneteau 40. True to the concept of offering the most exceptional livability, quality, cachet and value as found in her larger siblings, the Beneteau 40 was created by the collaboration of the renowned naval architects Berret/Racoupeau combined with the stylizing of the design firm of Nauta Yachts. This third member of the “next generation” of Beneteaus launches another impressive, elegant yacht with great excitement. From the sweeping, classically modern “muscle” of the deck line to the huge, twin wheel cockpit, the Beneteau 40 is executed to be startlingly attractive and superbly functional. The spacious and luminous interior of the Beneteau 40 is highlighted with rich, light colored select Moabi hardwoods, and many refinements, such as the generous use of stainless steel, add interesting focal points to a core of warmth and ease. With two commodious staterooms and an ample aft galley this yacht is sure to be perceived as providing sumptuous comfort.
