Cruising World Review - March 2007
The moment I set foot on the teak-decked swim platform of the Beneteau 49, I started to notice the nice touches. Like the insert, with its latching door, that's set in the transom and designed to hold a life raft. Remove the insert, and a generator can be installed. The athwartships seat across the back of the cockpit also has an insert, and it neatly folds up, down, and out of the way to provide access between the twin wheels. The large centerline cockpit table is built-in with fold-up wings. On its aft end is a chart-plotter pod that swivels to afford the helmsman a good view on either tack. The cockpit seats are long, with coamings high enough to lean on comfortably though not too high to make getting forward difficult. Nice corners fore and aft will be good to be wedged into in a seaway, and squared ends will make good backrests for stretching out in calmer conditions.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Beneteau 49 represents an era of truly exceptional Beneteau sailing yachts. The profile and look of the hull and deck, designed by Berret/Racoupeau, were modernized while retaining the major assets that have made Beneteau yachts admired for decades. Below decks, Nauta drew strikingly beautiful lines combined with brilliant woodwork, and superb materials to bring the Beneteau 49 to a fresh level of interior luxury.
Cruising World review 2007 Con't
At the end of a 3- or 4-foot alley, the cupped companionway steps lead down to an interior styled by the Italian firm Nauta Designs, well known for its megayacht interiors. The designers have done a nice job compromising between stylishness and the need to use the interior at sea; fiddles and handholds abound in warm, light, and airy surroundings.
When the light gets too bright, blinds pull down inside a deck liner/valance that keeps them in place when the boat's heeling.
The designers have abandoned the notion of stylish but uncomfortable curved settees for straight seats. The saloon table cleverly swivels and folds up for sailing and expands for dining; open for business, the table seats eight. Opposite the table on our demo boat was a settee. Under the floorboards amidships is a small sump-a feature that's rare but appreciated in modern, shallow-bilged boats. Mounting the bilge pump there keeps water concentrated in a small area and helps keep the rest of the bilge dry.
Forward, there's a large, teardrop-shaped double berth with another pair of hull ports. The forehatch supplies ventilation and more light. The large head has a separate shower enclosed by a curved sliding door. I wouldn't be surprised if the company rethinks that shower door soon; it didn't close easily on our demo, and when I did get it closed, I found the enclosure a bit tight. A hatch above the shower ventilates the head. Opposite the head are a good-sized hanging locker and a vanity with a seat.
The nav station is to starboard of the companionway, and no bulkhead obstructs the view forward. The chart table is big enough to accommodate charts with a minimum of folding. There's plenty of room for a plotter, radar, and other instruments.
The galley is to port, with a gimbaled three-burner stove and oven. The galley has a number of seagoing elements, including a refrigerator door that opens from aft so neither tack will distribute the contents over the cabin sole. The sinks are close to the centerline so they don't fill on either tack, although they could be a bit deeper. There's plenty of storage space.
