The interior is breathtaking. Beneteau has done a masterful job of finishing the 57, and if you didn't know this was a production model you'd easily be convinced it was a one-off custom boat built in Italy. The finish is cherry-stained Douka wood, and the sole is Iroko parquet. From the padded ceiling sections, to the carved door frames, to halogen lighting throughout to the elegant drape on the portlights and roller shades on the hatches, Beneteau has provided the accents to create a fine yacht. The impressive owners is stateroom aft. The derigueur centerline queen berth has drawers below, and a large hanging locker offers more storage. There is abundant ventilation and natural light in this simple but very comfortable stateroom. Indeed, ventilation and natural lighting is terrific throughout the boat. There seem to be Lewmar Ocean deck hatches and Atlantic series portlights everywhere. The aft head includes a molded shower compartment with plenty of head and elbow room. Forwardare double guest cabins, with a crew cabin and separate sail locker. The sail locker is especially useful, like a garage, and it also provides access to the workings of the indispensable bow thruster. Skipping back to the saloon, the first thing you note are the finely curved companionway steps. A large dining table, flanked by a curved settee and free-standing chairs are to port with the compact but very functional navigation station to starboard. The settee cushions deserve mention, they are made of triple-density foam, intricately shaped and finished in Dralon velvet upholstery. Forward-facing panoramic ports flood the saloon with light. The nav station includes a curved wooden seat and plenty of room for repeaters above the chart desk. The dining table has a built-in wine rack in the center, naturally. A Sharp flat-screen television and DVD is cleverly mounted to starboard-this is an option that might be hard to live without. Again, the overall sense is of spaciousness. Beneteau has taken pains not to crowd the saloon with too much furniture, although the overhead handholds will only be of use to tall people.

The galley is to port, aft of the companionway. There is plenty of counter space, a four-burner gimbaled stove and a built-in microwave. The fridge is front-loading, for convenience, while the freezer is reached through the top-less accessible but far better for keeping the cold in.

Deck and Exterior Features

The cockpit is brilliantly designed, with a robust teak seat complete with arm rests, is a practical way to open up the rest of the cockpit. And although it's snug behind the fixed windscreen and the hydraulic steering system provides all the advantage you'll ever need to steer the boat, I think Fitted with Optional pedestal-mounted wheel, the visibility is better and you will love steering from the centerline. Naturally all sail controls are led aft to huge Lewmar 66 electric primaries, which are a logical option on a boat of this size, especially if you are contemplating any kind of shorthanded sailing. The mainsheet traveler is aft, one advantage of center cockpits is that they make it practical to employ efficient end-boom sheeting arrangements. The deck includes teak on the side decks and molded nonskid on the coachroof. Teak provides the best traction possible, especially when wet, and besides, it looks great and the new teak deck systems are relatively low maintenance. Stainless steel grabrails along the coachroof are well placed and the beefy stanchions and robust lifelines give both the fore and aft decks a feeling of security and easy maneuverability. Overall, Beneteau has upgraded the deck hardware on the 57, from the eight stainless cleats, including two midships cleats per side, to the impressive stainless stemhead fitting with two anchor rollers. The genoa tracks are placed well inboard and the leads are set up for load-bearing adjustment, essential for high headsail loads. The triple-spreader, keel-stepped mast is by Sparcraft.
