S/Y "IDYLLE 1" is a BENETEAU 15.50, an offshore cruiser, designed by naval architect GERMAN FRERS and built for long passages with comfort and ease in mind. Her long keel and hull with easily driven lines, combined with a powerful cutter/sloop rig, perform well in all conditions, maintaining an outstanding 8-9 knots average under sail or power. Her smooth motion and "little ship" character is enjoyed by the pure sailing fans and the leisurely laid back guests alike.
