The Beneteau 473 combines extraordinary interior comfort, volume, and light with bluewater strength.  Designed by Groupe Finot, this design offers a unique combination of elegant lines with extraordinary space and performance.  The 473 boasts more features and creature comforts than ever before in a boat this size.  The Beneteau 473 was awarded 2001 Boat of the Year Best Production Cruiser.

She performs as well as she looks cutting through the water.  Designed by sailors for sailors, the twin helms allow for extraordinary visibility and ease of handling.  Furling sails is an easy task with the furling main and furling headsail, controlled by electric winches.  This truly is a one sailor boat despite its size and creature comforts. FRENCH WENCH is a low use, one owner boat that has been given great care and represents a fantastic value in today's market!
