Heron is a Bénéteau Oceanis 36cc. Designed by Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design and built in France for 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 people. With a depth of 1,53m, most ports can be called.

When we had decided to upgrade our Bianca XNUMX, we spent over a year finding out to what.In the fall of XNUMX we found Heron 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 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.
