When we had decided to upgrade our Bianca 28, we spent over a year finding out what to upgrade to

We looked at a lot of boats, drove +10.000 kilometers in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Holland and Belgium without finding the one who was just "it".

One late evening we foundBenéteau's Oceanis 36cc on the internet. It is designed byBerret Racoupeau Yacht Design and a few hundred 36ccs were built at Benéteau's shipyard in France in the years 1997 to 2003.

The model was developed at the request of Bénéteau's Scandinavian dealers. They wanted to offer a boat with the same sailing characteristics, comfort and quality as the competitors Hallberg Rassy, ​​Najad and Malö. Just at a more attractive price.

The hull is the same as on a First 361, but with center cockpit and wing keel. The boat is fun and safe to sail and handled easily by 1 or 2 persons. With a depth of 1,53m, most ports can be called.

There was no one for sale in Denmark and in in the fall of 2010 we found Heron (vintage 2003) in La Rochelle. In late October, it came to our home port in Humlebæk.

In Denmark, our season went from March to November. We typically had about 100 sailing days a year and sailed around 1.200 nautical miles every year. The weekend trips often went to Copenhagen, where we visited family and friends. Summer trips took place in Denmark, Germany and the Swedish east and west coast.

Since August 2016 Heron has been on a long journey.
