The Beneteau 473 rewrote the book on comfortable shorthanded performance cruising and was named "Boat of the Year" by Cruising World Magazine when introduced in theUS. She performs as well as she looks and while she is a big boat, she is easy to for a couple to sail with all her lines lead back to her roomy cockpit, in-mast furling, electric halyard winch, etc. The key is that the Beneteau 473 was designed by sailors for sailors, and with the twin steering station offers you excellent visibility and ease of steering.
Designed by Finot, the hull carries her waterline well aft for a performance ride that is hard to find in any other modern performance cruiser and her Category A rating means she is built to take the challenge of any Ocean in the world...so whether you are cruising the Bay, headed for the Caribbean or across an Ocean, the Beneteau 473 will take you there with speed, style and safety.
"Enchantement" is a traditional 2 stateroom layout, Beneteau 473. She is currently owned by her third owner , who has continued to keep her in immaculate condition.
