The popular Beneteau 50 is designed by naval architects Bennet Racoupeau with the interior designed by Nauta Designs bringing a contemporary look to the well-known Oceanis brand. The 50 features a dual-cockpit configuration with twin steering positions and directly accessible winches for the helmsman. Bespoke made dark blue super comfy back cushions for both helms, making a huge difference when at the helm for long watches. Access from the stern is made easy by a built-in step and a hinged seat that lead to the cockpit. Ravida has been incredibly well maintained by her current owners over the last 4 years; many improvements and upgrades have been made for a safe and comfortable Atlantic crossing in 2020
