Broker's comments

Dutch design and craftsmanship in steel, "Benine" is a true world cruiser. Her lines are elegant. Under sail she performs like a dream. Generous tankage provides nearly unparalleled range for a 41-footer. Her shoal draft design puts you in anchorages off-limits to deeper-draft boats. Third owner since 1984.
