    Hi everybody!

    Can anybody help with the following data for Beneteau '57:
    1. size of the ladder on this vessel
    2. reference Nr. of dark-blue color

    My local dealer doesn't provide with this information.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Please let me know if you are still looking for this information. We are taking delivery on a B57 later in the year.

    One thing I can comment on off the top of my head, from my discussions with Beneteau at Strictly Sail last month was they they are not delivering any new hulls in the traditional painted blue color.

    We have asked for our hull to be painted in the "Beneteau Blue" (whatever that color / # is) and we were told that they are no longer painting them / delivering them in this color. Apparently, there have been some issues in the past hulls which were painted that caused them some level of headaches. Our broker recommended taking delivery, bringing her stateside and having the work done here.

    If you are still in need of the ladder measurements, please let me know and I can see what I can dig up.
