About this vessel
This French Mademoiselle offers style, performance and value for money.
Competing with the Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht in its function, features and space the Flyer 12 is a compact 42-footer lacking none of the luxuries of her competitors. Beneteau has created a beautiful sports yacht with sleek exterior lines and eye-catching colour which are matched by a well-thought-out layout.
The forward owner’s stateroom has good ventilation, ample storage, a huge island double bed and its own spacious and luxurious en suite. The guest’s cabin is amidships. It has a double bed, standing headroom at the end of the bed and its own (slightly smaller) en-suite.
The helm is positioned at the front of the main saloon. It offers good visibility to all quarters, a comfortable driving position, full instrumentation and two helm seats, so the driver doesn’t have to go it alone. A sliding sunroof with three skylights (for better natural lighting in the saloon even when the roof is closed) is a great feature.
The fully-equipped galley extends along the entire port side saloon wall and is covered by a classy wooden benchtop when not in use. There’s a wide walkway between the galley and U-shaped lounge and dining table to starboard. This vessel also has an infill that allows this to become additional accommodation if needed.
A sliding door leads to the open teak laid aft cockpit, which is sheltered from the elements by the extended saloon roof. Place a removable table and four or five director’s chairs on the uncluttered teak deck and you can enjoy a bit of alfresco dining.
Easy access through a hinged transom door leads you to the generous swim platform which includes a deep fold-down swim ladder, storage and a hot and cold shower for a rinse off after a dip.
Pleasantly wide walkways and a high bow rail down each side of the main saloon make a trip to the bow easy, although, thanks to the remote anchor windlass, this trip is rarely needed. Unless you want to soak up a few rays on the forward sun lounge that is.
Performance-wise she’s powered by Volvo D6-IPS which delivers outstanding ride, manoeuvring economy and quiet comfort. With a top speed of over 30 knots, she’ll be sure not to disappoint.
