2004 Beneteau 50′
The Beneteau Farr 50 is a perfect Caribbean boat – that’s what they designed her for. She is built for fun, to be used hard, and to sail fast. For a family, you will not find more value conscious yachts than these. And it is proven that Beneteaus designed for passagemaking are able world cruisers.
The 50 has a powerful raked bow and moderately high cabintrunk that runs far aft. The long cockpit runs from the center to far aft and opens via a little door to the swim platform. She is more an aft cockpit yacht. She has 2 portholes below deck and 6 along the cabin on each side with a thin molded strip through them. These portholes give her a French flair unlike the parade of lumbering looking cruisers. Her waterline length is 45’5″ compared to 50′ overall length consists of the small 5′ bow overhangs. No one questions the skill of Bruce Farr, the designer of these Beneteaus. The stern aft barely slopes up leaving great access for swimming.
The deck has molded non-skid for good traction on a single level deck. The chainlocker forward has two doors and separated compartment. Just aft, the windlass is mounted higher for the chain to clear the locker doors. The side decks are easy to navigate with the inboard mounted chainplates to powerfully strong deck fixtures that use tie rods to distribute forces below. Stanchions on the cabintrunk give good security. There are 2 hatches aft, 4 amidships, and 5 forward. The fifth forward most opens into a forecastle for sail storage. Four dorades are on deck with 2 forward and 2 aft.
All the lines route to the cockpit. The jib enroul fair-leads over the cabintrunk through to the cockpit. The cockpit is large from amidships to the stern. She has dual steering stations with the master station starboardside. The seats are comfortable to sit in and lean back against the stern pulpit. You can easily brace your feet against the helms. Visibility is easy seating or standing. The seating forward of the helms is long and the cockpit table a foot bar to brace against. The companionway sill is a good foot and has 2 slats that close her off. Sternmost the swim platform has one level and a small centerline stepdown. A lazarette starboardside has a drainage hole.
The three cabin layout on the Beneteau 50 is ideal for a couple cruising with friends or for a family. It offers a tremendous forward owner’s stateroom with private head and shower. This stateroom has excellent storage in hanging lockers, cabinets and drawers and offers privacy from the rest of the vessel. The main salon is huge. It easily seats 8 for dinner at the table on the port side with seating for more to starboard. The forward facing nav station offers an excellent complement of electronics and is close to the companionway for communication with the crew on deck. The large galley is aft to starboard and is equally comfortable at sea or at anchor. The two mirror image guest cabins aft have a good sized double berth and are both en-suite.
