FRENCH AFFAIR is a 38' Diesel sports cruiser ready to go explore.

The Benneateau 38 Flyer packs a lot into a 38' vessel giving this vessel the feel of a much larger vessel.

This 39-footer has another side to her that should interest family and friends. To port of the helm down four steps beneath a skylight—nice touch—is a saloon with an L-shape dinette to port and a galley to starboard. The galley has a two-burner cooktop, sink, and decent stowage. That saloon-galley-dinette combo is cozy and comfortable. Aft of the galley is the wet head, with a porthole for ventilation and a skylight.

Living space includes a master stateroom in the bow with an island berth, which has stowage beneath, and hanging lockers to either side. Hull-side windows and opening portholes add to livability, as does an overhead hatch. A second stateroom amidships offers twin berths, outboard hanging lockers, and hull-side windows with opening ports.

The instrument panel is a two-tiered affair with analog tachometers and trim indicators up high, electronics and more analog gauges below. The wheel is compact and well positioned, and the Volvo engine controls are mounted on their own outcropping, putting them in easy reach, just above the controls was the joystick.

Inside the deck is level all the way from the cockpit to the double-wide helm benchseat, where there’s a single step up to improve sightlines. The seat here converts to a bolster with the flip of one hand, ideal for me—I mostly prefer to stand when I drive but change my mind and position often. A single starboard companion seat also flips up and has a stainless grab rail in front of it, which can give the seat’s occupant confidence and security in a seaway. Windows to either side slide down manually to provide ventilation, and a power sunroof that’s nearly full-width slides back to air things out even more.
