About the Ruby Jack

The Catamaran is RUBY JACK, she is a 1986 34' Beneteau Blue II. She has been extensively refurbished and has the following features:

-Twin Yanmar diesel inboard engines

-Twin Steering Wheels

-Large Trampoline

-Comfortable Bridge Deck

The Beneteau Blue II was designed by legend Philippe Briand who first designed for Beneteau in 1974.  His designs for competition have included eight yachts for six America’s Cup campaigns; two of the vessels for the French team that won the Admiral’s Cup in 1991; and countless high-performance offshore racing yachts. 

 

The Blue II was produced in relatively small numbers and essentially became a prototype for the Beneteau Lagoon series.

Charles Kanter in his book "Cruising Catamaran Communique" describes the Beneteau Blue ll as: "it looks like it flew right out of Star Wars. It is gorgeous."And, Ferenc Mate in his book "World"s Best Sailboats" featured her when he discussed the Beneteau boats. Her duel helms makes her unique for a cruising boat of her size. The large trampoline is great for a luau party or sleeping on a hot summer night
