Hello to Bene sailors. I am currently sailing a 2007 Beneteau 343 out of Annapolis. The plan is eventually to head towards the Keys and Bahamas.

We have a 42cc launched in March 2006. It is the only one in NZ and I would welcome the opportunity to communicate with other owners. It is possibly the only Burgundy hull as we had it painted from new.
