Beneteau has truly mastered the blend of speed, handling, comfort and style. Everywhere you turn there is something that impresses. Sometimes it’s a big thing, like the entire transom being automated with the ability to transform into an incredible swim platform. And then there are smaller subtleties, like a handy little freezer unit built into the cockpit table. These amenities are sprinkled throughout the boat. In-mast furling, elegant wood decks, great amounts of natural light down below, tons of storage, luxurious accommodations, a high-end electronics package, and so much more make the 55.1 one of the most well-appointed sailboats on the market.
