Andrew Burton reviews the Beneteau 46 for the 2007 Cruising World Sailboat Show
From the moment you climb aboard the Beneteau 46, you notice innovations that make operating the boat easier. Standing on the transom swim platform, you’ll see an insert with a locking hatch sized for a six-man life raft. Remove the insert to install a small generator under the cockpit sole. Twin wheels flank a seat that folds out of the way when boarding. The long cockpit overlooks a cambered, raised deckhouse. Water that makes it past the dodger will be channeled to the deck from the wide dashboard.
