We've known 'Hugo Ex' since we launched her near the Beneteau Factory in France, in April 2018. She was carefully specified by discerning owners who wanted a genuine performance cruising yacht, that sailed well, especially in light airs so you could sail instead of motor, that was large and comfortable to live on board yet small enough to manage as a couple. The vessel also needed to provide self sufficient autonomy with enough power run all the systems daily without running the engine, and of course have everything you would need to safely cross the globe as a couple.
The following options were fitted to match the task:
Owner's version with 2 cabins and one head, a large storage area aft of the galley.
Yanmar 45HP Direct Injection Diesel with just over 1000 hours, and a full-service history.
Deep Keel of 2.2m for that performance factor.
