I've been in 50' sport cruisers that had far less space and amenities than this 41' boat.
Whilst I enjoy other posters’ euphemisms, I’ll say it as I see it. Bare minimum of everything, cheapest version of everything, made down to price. The depreciation on these will be awful. I’m retired and dream of a lottery win so I can afford a boat, but I struggled to the end of this review. I’d be so disappointed if I ended up with something like this.
I liked this little boat. The only thing I would change, make only one shower. Have one bigger for everyone to share an I'd probably add a bath tub shower unit in it. That way if small kids are onboard it's easier to get them clean. Plus I know alot of people like myself who just like to sit back an soak, mainly if the tub has water jets in it.
I really like those trawler yachts, and from some videos I watched recently, Beneteau makes some especially nice ones.The light wood and not-glossy surfaces look great and not too over the top. If I'd win the lottery, the first thing I'd do is get a boat like this. But most of the time, these yachts are presented somewhere warm, like the Mediterranean, which makes me wonder: Would these boats be fit for the North Sea or a visit to Norways fjords? I'd go there first before going south.
And while I'm commenting: I randomly came across this channel a year or two ago, and found looking at yachts to be a fantastic way of escapism. And this channel is one of the best yacht-channels I've found so far (along with MB&Y and a few others). The same goes for your motorhome channel. Keep up the great work, and I'm looking forward for more almost affordable trawlers.
Nice boat Nick, not top end material but a nice boat, great video 👍
After watching Nick for years now. While I was watching I noticed things like fit and finish. Use of materials. I feel like I’m a yacht critic now.
please we need comparing in true ocean water between this boat and Nordhaven 41
Nick love what you doing and showing us all these boat and yacht
Beautiful, how much fuel ?
perfect for when the wife kicks you out of the house. Or if you have to share time between your home and an office on the coast.
You are certainly bringing me around to sedan style boats.
Hi Nick 👋 any chance you can find your way onto a Steelers Yacht ?? 👍
I do wonder with the price of some boats. When you compare them to a motor home of half the price, the motor home is better specced.
I could happily live aboard this wonderful ship.Get a water maker,a small generator,a freestanding air-conditioner,and cruise 'The Loop' while docking where the weather's nice whenever I pleased.Spaced well for a couple guests too.
Sorry someone may have picked this up already 🧐. So no generator …. so what powers the washing machine …. shore power only 🤔
Wasn't there a track for a curtain in the saloon? I think that's what the infill in front of the washing machine is for. Occasional 2 person berth makes this even better! What was in the narrow cupboard above the one for the table? My guess is deck chairs. Lovely little pensioners boat, thanks for the walkthrough Nick👍
Boats without fly bridges always look much better in my opinion.
Very nice little ship! You could spend some time comfortably on it!
need review(s) of the Lagoons catamarans please! 😀
I could live on this very comfortably 👍
Watching aquaholic on the beach
Meh….didn't like that one Nick.
Different strokes, for different folks I guess.
No miele dish washer??? I am ruined….
(Nick is perfect as always)
In your old video a swift trawler 47 with flybridge is 440.000 instead of this smaller one which is 560.000
The interior fit and finish isn’t kind to the exterior. It’s less marine and more caravan. Not a good thing unfortunately.
great price for such a sea going little ship! thanks for showing us this nick, cheers! (missed my motoholic vid this weekend)
Love this boat.
I'll let Beneteau know it's a coupé not a sedan.
(A sedan is a coupé with multiple side doors on the same side)
Retirement live aboard dream
3:49 it looks like the curtain tracks section off the dining area? presumeably you can convert to additional bedding?
This is one of the boats I could get instead of a vacation house. Especially if I got it used. For some reason I always like French designs.
I don't quite get these pleasure boats. What do you do? Speed to a spot but one not very far as your reliant on gas and then stop for a bit and go back?
Always need a sail on a boat to travel. Why use a boat if not for transportation
Another beautifully done boat that is perfect for my wife and I that, regretfully, we can't afford.
Great boat, nevertheless.
Great little boat for inshore use
elegant, practical design perfect for weeks-long trips. Just a perfect master, and the head is so cleverly assigned. Ideal.
Finish and materials look cheap given the price point.
Nicely designed boat.
Still would prefer a Ranger Tug Made in the USA https://youtu.be/K3peUS6UVgw
What a brilliant starter yacht. Add a fresh water maker and a Gen set one could cruise here and there all summer without a care. Have a great week Nick!
Surely a non-flybridge handles better too? Centre of gravity is lower and so is drag
Wow, what an incredible layout! 2 good sized cabins & an ‘owners suite’ (that’s what I’d call it!) plus loads of room inside & out… I can’t fault this one Nick, superb! 👍🏻
Like this. Thanks Nick. Btw, when are you launching a range of socks?
I hadn't heard of that engine maker before, was expecting Volvo Pentas under there!
I don’t know.. some nice and practical details but this boat is not very far from boats like Nimbus 405 price wise.. Compared to the Nimbus the French boat looks rather cheap.. specially regarding woodwork, helm, detail quality etc
Great boat. Checks a lot of boxes. Curious about how far would it cruise at 8-10 knots?
