Very well maintained 3-cabin plus crew, 4-heads example of the popular Farr designed Beneteau 57 centre cockpit bluewater cruising yacht.




Originally launched in 2004, ARTEMIS is fitted out for effortless liveaboard and long-distance cruising. She is easily handled by the smallest of crew thanks to her electric furling main and genoa and her bank of electric winches. Below decks, ARTEMIS features the popular 3-cabin plus crew layout which provides a substantial owner’s suite aft plus mirrored double guest cabins forward. All cabins have en-suite heads and there is a further day-heads adjacent to the companionway which also serves the crew cabin located in the walkthrough aft.


Her specification highlights include:-

  • Dark blue topsides
  • CopperCoat antifoul system
  • Teak laid side decks
  • 3-cabin plus crew, 4-heads interior layout
  • 2.60m draft keel option for improved windward performance and offshore stability
  • 160hp Yanmar engine with low hours run
  • Generator
  • Additional forward fuel tank with transfer pump
  • 24vDC domestic electrics with twin engine alternators and upgraded battery banks
  • Upgraded reverse osmosis watermaker 160 l/h
  • In mast furled mainsail
  • Electric winches
  • Reversible Cruisar Climma
  • Navigation instruments with chart plotter and radar
  • Upgraded Raymarine SeaTalkNG communication for NMEA2000 connections
  • Reverse cycle air conditioning system in all the cabins and saloon
  • Additional forward fuel tank
  • Davits for the tender
  • Centre console rigid bottom tender with 20hp engine
  • Sun decking cushions forward


Offered for sale due to lack of time for sailing, ARTEMIS is immediately available, Swedish-flagged and EU VAT paid




We purchased Artemis 2019 in Corfu which was her home port for several season. Her owner was also the owner of a local shipyard and a boutique hotel and acquired ARTEMIS after seeing her in the marina and approaching the original Swedish owner to see if he would be prepared to sell. The original owner had hired a professional captain for when they were aboard, so boat was in amazing condition. The second owner planned to offer the boat for crewed weekend charters with a professional captain and registered her in Greece for this purpose. Unfortunately for the owner and fortunately for us, the regulations for owner-charter in Greece tightened which made it financially impractical for him to own and operate ARTEMIS in this fashion. As we knew the original Swedish owners of the boat and therefore the history and care of use throughout her life, we took the opportunity to become the very proud new owners of an extremely well-maintained Beneteau 57 after carrying out a full pre-purchase inspection including FLIR/infrared photography of the underwater sections.


After putting the boat back on to a Swedish flag, we sailed sailed in the eastern Med, Greece, Croatia and on to Italy. The reason we are selling is for both family and work reasons, as our time for extended cruising is now severely limited.


Shortly before our purchase, ARTEMIS had a CopperCoat system applied to her hull, along with new seacocks and other upgrades required for the charter safety requirements (like dual VHF). The genoa was brand new and the main only a few years older and in good serviceable condition. ARTEMIS has, evidenced by the relatively low engine and genset hours been lightly used.




“Where would we be without dreams? For years, Francois Chalain, Beneteau's chief designer and inhouse conceptualist, dreamed about creating a production boat like the new 57. His vision centered on a powerful sailing machine with the kind of luxurious amenities and long list of standard features that would permanently alter the public's perception of the world's largest sailboat builder, placing it squarely among the ranks of the elite custom boatbuilders. And as lofty as those aspirations are, there is also a practical side to Beneteau's stunning new flagship…


…The new 57 is a leap for Beneteau- this is a departure boat, a statement boat. Designed by Bruce Farr, (with close collaboration from Chalain) this new center-cockpit passagemaker has genuinely raised the bar for production builders as it combines a hull form that allows for luxurious accommodations and yet one that offers surprising performance. What is not surprising is that Beneteau has deployed all of its manufacturing moxie to bring the 57 to market at a base price that will make other builders seasick with envy…


… make no mistake, the new 57 is also designed to win those so-called rally events like the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, and to do very well in the Bermuda races too. The details The first impression upon stepping aboard is one of space. Despite the number of people milling about, the boat rarely felt crowded. And it felt solid in the water as the sails went up in a fresh breeze. The construction is in line with Beneteau's other big boats, featuring a solid hull and balsa-cored deck. The hull also includes a balsa rib band for stiffening. A massive hull liner that is bonded and laminated to the hull provides structural integrity. I have never been overly fond of hull liners, especially in big boats, but the tooling of this liner, which is essentially a hull within a hull, demonstrates Beneteau's commitment to the 57…


…Down below the interior is breathtaking. Beneteau has done a masterful job of finishing the 57, and if you didn't know this was a production model you'd easily be convinced it was a one-off custom boat built in Italy. The finish is cherry-stained Douka wood, and the sole is Iroko parquet. From the padded ceiling sections, to the carved door frames, to halogen lighting throughout to the elegant drape on the portlights and roller shades on the hatches, Beneteau has provided the accents to create a fine yacht…


…Under way Back on deck the wind had eased a bit to 11 knots true and, with a 145-percent roller-furling genoa, we punched through the chop at 8 knots plus on a beat. Easing the sheets, we shot up toward 9 knots, and when the wind freshened to 15 knots true, the speedo hit 9.2. The ride was easy and the motion soft. The steering was effortless. That, of course, is a feature of hydraulic steering. You drive by the sails, not the feedback from the rudder, and until you get used to it, it's easy to oversteer. Cracking off onto a deeper reach, we maintained 8 knots despite a falling apparent wind. Mind you, these boat speeds are obtained with a crowd of people on board and little attention to sail trim. I sure that with a little effort, the 57 will spend a lot of time clipping along in double digits...


…The new Beneteau 57 is a worthy flagship for the world's largest sailboat builder. It's a world-class yacht and an excellent big boat value…”
