    Captain's Report

    Beneteau Flyer 23 SPACEdeck running
    The Beneteau Flyer 23 SPACEdeck brings a new realm to keeping day-boating fun.

    Probably the most notable feature that we came away with during our recent test of the Flyer 23 SPACEdeck is the impressive running surface of the AirStep hull. She has handling characteristics that took us by surprise as this was such a comfortable and easy driving boat. As for her exterior layout, some might say “Spacious” … we say smart. Smart in design, and social in seating. With available horsepower from 300 to 350, she has gentle handling qualities, but she can still head offshore without concern. Our full test is coming soon but until then, take a look at our sneak peek.

    Beneteau Flyer 23 SPACEdeck plan
    With her open layout, the Flyer 23 SPACEdeck is comfortable to be on and easy to move around in. Both the forward and aft seats convert to sunlounges.
    Beneteau Flyer 23 SPACEdeck running
    The Flyer 23 SPACEdeck is equally at home cruising with a crowd as she is engaging in watersports. With a capacity of 10 persons, go ahead and invite the neighborhood.
    Beneteau Flyer 23 SPACEdeck cockpit
    Swivel the forward seats around, drop down the flip side seats and a social zone is created. In true Flyer fashion, the seat cushions are removable for easy storage, so there isn’t even a worry about having to cover this boat.
    Beneteau Flyer 23 SPACEdeck outboard
    Choose Mercury power up to 300-horses. Large platforms to the sides make entry and reboarding from the water easy. The ski arch makes towing a no-brainer.
    Beneteau Flyer 23 SPACEdeck bow
    The roomy bow is likely to be the most popular on the Flyer 23 SPACEdeck. High rails add to the safety, and thick cushions add to the comfort. A pedestal base allows the cockpit table to transfer to this location. If desired, add filler cushions to convert to a sun pad.
    Beneteau Flyer 23 SPACEdeck
    Operations are from a center console that even offers a bow thruster. Did we mention how easy this boat is to drive? Add in a full Garmin package to navigate far from the confines of the protected harbors.
