General Details



This spacious cruiser handles very well and is remarkably fast. All running rigging is accessible from the cockpit making her great for short handed sailing. She has THREE staterooms, each with a PRIVATE HEAD & SHOWER. The master stateroom has an island queen berth with lots of room. Well equipped and nicely laid out galley is in-line with a large engine driven refrigerator and freezer. Salon dining table seats eight easily and converts to an over-sized double berth for additional guests.

As you can see from this description of her lay-out...she is a special boat. Call us for complete details about this 3-Cabin Beneteau and then make an appointment to come see her for yourself.


Starting forward is the master stateroom. There is a centerline double berth with a cushioned seat aft and to port followed by a large hanging locker. There are two drawers under the berth and storage under the seat cushions. On the starboard and port sides there are cabinets with shelves on top followed by the ensuite head and shower unit. Next aft, on the starboard side of the main salon we find an L-shaped settee around the dining table with a cushioned loveseat on the centerline making comfortable seating for 8 people. There is cabinet and shelf storage above the settee and outboard. There is plenty of additional storage under and behind the settee seats. The aft-facing nav station uses the aft end of the settee for seating and has a large chart table as well as chart storage. Opposite the settee and on the port side is a straight-line galley with counter surface most forward, followed by the double stainless steel sinks, the 3-burner stove with oven/broiler and then the double, top-opening freezer/refrigeration unit. There is plentiful storage below the work surfaces as well as above and outboard. At the base of the companionway on both sides are twin matching head and shower units. Aft of the heads are identical cabins each with a double berth, shelf storage, a hanging locker. The wood paneling is throughout is a beautiful cherry stain, while the cabin sole is a teak and holly laminate. There are ample hatches and side ports providing plentiful natural light and good ventilation. The general feeling of the interior is one of spaciousness and elegance.
