Had a request to carry out a pre - purchase survey and sea trials on a Beneteau 395. What was the biggest surprise when I attended the boat was how well looked after the yacht was. It has to be one of the best examples I had seen for a long time. What got me thinking is why are these yachts so popular? Going through the yacht I was starting to understand why. Simplicity is the answer. They are built for a purpose and do it well. As to the sea trial, that was great. Thank you to all involved.
