Vanishing Point is a Farr designed fast cruiser with a deep keel for excellent upwind cruising. She is extremely comfortable with a beautifully appointed saloon that hosts a large lounge, dining for 6, a chart table and high forward windows providing lots of light. She is a centre cockpit design with the helm forward and to port, protected by a windscreen with a Bimini cover, making night shifts a breeze (or rather not breezy) This Beneteau is designed to be managed without a crew. One or two people can raise sails, reef and tack with the help of electric winches and furlers, from the protected cockpit. Rear stairs and platform rotate down from the rear deck and transom giving excellent access for swimming. Vanishing point is designed for comfortable and fast cruising. Enough space to sanely last the distance and yet easily managed short handed.. There is a review of the 57 on yacht and boat http://www.yachtandboat.com.au/news/beneteau-57-review
