Whether you need a family-friendly cruising boat or a sporty daysailer – the BENTE24 meets every sailing requirement. Our concept, refined to perfection in every detail, is sure to inspire you – whether sailing with an experienced crew or enjoying a pleasure cruise with your family. The BENTE24 is unmistakable either way!
In the international yachting scene, the name judel/vrolijk stands for unique design concepts as well as well-balanced, innovative boat constructions with excellent sailing characteristics. Avoiding the same old familiar choices – and replacing them with something new and surprising – this is the philosophy that makes BENTE so special. And you can see it, feel it – and experience it on the water.
Excellent sailing characteristics are the hallmark of every BENTE. Whether tacking or sailing broad reach, whether planing or manoeuvring in narrow harbours – a BENTE always shows what it’s made of. On inland waters, its sailing performance is enhanced with enlarged rigging for inland waters, while on the open sea it impresses with good offshore characteristics. And most importantly – no matter how skilled you are as a sailor, a BENTE is every skipper’s best friend in no time at all.
With an unladen weight of less than 1,500 kilograms, the basic version of the BENTE24 is trailerable. On inland waters, overall performance is enhanced with enlarged rigging for inland waters.
A BENTE is more than “just” a yacht. It is also a living space and a haven of leisure for sailors with widely varying requirements. Do you want to simply relax and let your thoughts run free in the sunshine? Or use the fresh breeze to improve your sailing skills? Whatever you choose to do, with the BENTE it becomes a pleasure. Naturally, there are also plenty of comfortable details and convenient solutions to make life on board as pleasant as possible. Want to cook some fresh pasta for a hearty meal? Or perhaps just enjoy the sunset with a chilled aperitif? Whatever floats your boat.
The distinctive dodger (fixed sprayhood), which can be customised in optional colours, is certainly a defining BENTE design feature. However, above all, it also gives you greater freedom of movement and a clear view of all halyards, sheets and reefing lines. In addition, the dodger allows unrestricted headroom in the area of the companionway and provides plenty of daylight below deck. Last but not least, its ergonomically and aerodynamically shaped windscreen ensures that the cockpit stays dry for a long time in choppy seas.
A BENTE is easily tamed. A beginner will find it just as easy to safely control as an experienced skipper or a sporty crew. This makes the BENTE ideal as a daysailer or a cruising boat for the whole family. Thanks to a host of innovative and practical details, everything you need for relaxed and easy sailing is already on board.

To live comfortably aboard your BENTE, you need space to stow your clothes and equipment and to store supplies, cooking utensils, crockery and bedding. And if your little shipmates are along for the ride, there must also be enough room for their (cuddly) toys, naturally!
The BENTE space concept focuses on strict ergonomics, modern design and maximum sailing comfort. Standing upright (approx. 190 cm of weather-protected headroom under the dodger) is just as relaxing as sitting or lying down on the generously upholstered surfaces. Uplifting ambience – the flooring and folding tables are made of Permateek, and a large skylight makes the space below deck feel light and bright.
And when your BENTE lies at anchor and night falls, the saloon becomes a large sleeping and resting area that even taller sailors will appreciate.
