Heron is a Bénéteau Oceanis 36cc.
It was designed by Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design and built in France in 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 the First 361, but the Oceanis XNUMXcc has a center cockpit and a wing keel.
The boat is fun and safe to sail and is easily handled by 1 or 2 people. With a depth of 1,53m we can call on most ports.
We spent more than a year investigating the market as we had decided to upgrade our Bianca 28. In autumn 2010 we bought this Heron. At that time it was in La Rochelle and at the end of 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 each year we sailed around 1.200 nautical miles. Weekend trips often went to Copenhagen where we visited family and friends. The summer trips went to Denmark, Germany and the Swedish east and west coast.
In August 2016 we sailed into the European rivers and canals heading towards the Mediterranean.
