Lovely example of this popular cruiser/racer from the Beneteau stable. Designed by Finot Conq she is quick, well balanced but also comfortable below decks. This is the ideal yacht for those who wish to be competitive at club level, yet require a boat suitable for cruising with the family. This is the desirable, lifting keel version which will prove popular with drying moorings. It also allows different cruising grounds to be explored.
The boat is clean, well maintained with the important parts addressed. She has new gas pipes, sprayhood, interior headlining. The sails are regularly valeted and have recent tell tales and a new UV strip to the genoa.
Recent survey carried out for insurance purposes in 2019
Below decks is bright and spacious thanks to the numerous deck hatches, portlights and the large opening "sun roof" forward of the companionway. The headlinings were all replaced professionally in 2016 and this brightens the saloon considerably. The interior wood is light coloured stained teak ply and attractive Teak & Holly laminate flooring. The fabrics are a nautical blue with well-upholstered foam. Dedicated forward-facing chart table with chart storage, drawers, reading light and switch panel. Opposite is the galley with gas-fuelled oven and 2-burner hob. Top loading coolbox with basket storage. Stainless steel sink with hand pumped fresh water.
Aft cabin with large double berth. Wardrobe storage with dressing seat. 12V deckhead and reading lights. Aft of chart table is the heads compartment with Jabsco sea toilet, sink with hand-pumped water and storage area.
Settee/berths either side of large drop leaved table. Forward cabin with privacy door, infil cushion and hull-mounted storage
