Crescendo is one of the finest examples of the Beneteau 36.7 on the market today and at a realistic price!
The following is a review of the vessel from Sail Magazine: Beneteau First 36.7 - 2002 BOTY Best Value
A fast racer/cruiser from Farr Yacht Design
By Lynn BowserOctober 25, 2001 Walter Cooper
If you ’re shopping for a racer cruiser in the mid thirty-foot range and you want to get a lot of bang for your buck, then the 36.7 is hands down your best bet.
Following on the heels of their success with her big sister the 40.7, Beneteau continued the pedigree by selecting Farr Yacht Design to draw the lines for the new 36.7. The Farr office has an extensive and impressive record of winning race results and is widely acknowledged as one of the top racing yacht design firms in the world. And it really shows. Under way the First 36.7 springs to life. Upwind the helm feels balanced and the boat has an overall powerful, smooth feel. The fine hull entry forward exhibited little tendency to pound into the moderate one to two foot chop. At 11,552 pounds displacement this boat is no ultralight. However, with a generous 655 square foot working sail plan and a large gennaker, she was responsive to sail trim and rudder movements both reaching and running downwind.
Beneteau has wrapped a bundle of high quality gear, several unique features and many creature comforts into a neat package. With a racer/cruiser, it a delicate balance between the wants of designer, builder, and buyers; compromises must be made. The more subtle the execution, the better the effect. It’s obvious that this boat carefully addresses the needs of buyers who want to be able to race competitively at the one-design or club levels yet still cruise in comfort. The slight compromises which have been made to both racing requirements and cruising amenities have been done correctly and in all the right places.
Just a few of the strong points of this 36.7:
- New bottom job, sprayed Trinidad paint 2016
-Hull Awlgrip 2014, in great condition
-New Harken Carbofoil 2017
- RT-11 Loos Gauge for rod rigging, turning guide
- West Florida PERF Rating of 84
- Keel is fin with bulb & spade rudder
- Lots of spare parts
This is a great opportunity to own a class boat that everyone can enjoy!
