YACHTING PRESS REVIEW:
“Where would we be without dreams? For years, Francois Chalain, Beneteau's chief designer and inhouse conceptualist, dreamed about creating a production boat like the new 57. His vision centered on a powerful sailing machine with the kind of luxurious amenities and long list of standard features that would permanently alter the public's perception of the world's largest sailboat builder, placing it squarely among the ranks of the elite custom boatbuilders. And as lofty as those aspirations are, there is also a practical side to Beneteau's stunning new flagship…
…The new 57 is a leap for Beneteau- this is a departure boat, a statement boat. Designed by Bruce Farr, (with close collaboration from Chalain) this new center-cockpit passagemaker has genuinely raised the bar for production builders as it combines a hull form that allows for luxurious accommodations and yet one that offers surprising performance. What is not surprising is that Beneteau has deployed all of its manufacturing moxie to bring the 57 to market at a base price that will make other builders seasick with envy…
… make no mistake, the new 57 is also designed to win those so-called rally events like the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, and to do very well in the Bermuda races too. The details The first impression upon stepping aboard is one of space. Despite the number of people milling about, the boat rarely felt crowded. And it felt solid in the water as the sails went up in a fresh breeze. The construction is in line with Beneteau's other big boats, featuring a solid hull and balsa-cored deck. The hull also includes a balsa rib band for stiffening. A massive hull liner that is bonded and laminated to the hull provides structural integrity. I have never been overly fond of hull liners, especially in big boats, but the tooling of this liner, which is essentially a hull within a hull, demonstrates Beneteau's commitment to the 57…
…Down below the interior is breathtaking. Beneteau has done a masterful job of finishing the 57, and if you didn't know this was a production model you'd easily be convinced it was a one-off custom boat built in Italy. The finish is cherry-stained Douka wood, and the sole is Iroko parquet. From the padded ceiling sections, to the carved door frames, to halogen lighting throughout to the elegant drape on the portlights and roller shades on the hatches, Beneteau has provided the accents to create a fine yacht…
…Under way Back on deck the wind had eased a bit to 11 knots true and, with a 145-percent roller-furling genoa, we punched through the chop at 8 knots plus on a beat. Easing the sheets, we shot up toward 9 knots, and when the wind freshened to 15 knots true, the speedo hit 9.2. The ride was easy and the motion soft. The steering was effortless. That, of course, is a feature of hydraulic steering. You drive by the sails, not the feedback from the rudder, and until you get used to it, it's easy to oversteer. Cracking off onto a deeper reach, we maintained 8 knots despite a falling apparent wind. Mind you, these boat speeds are obtained with a crowd of people on board and little attention to sail trim. I sure that with a little effort, the 57 will spend a lot of time clipping along in double digits...
…The new Beneteau 57 is a worthy flagship for the world's largest sailboat builder. It's a world-class yacht and an excellent big boat value…”
