The 343 was one of Beneteau's most popular models when it was new and this particular boat has been well cared for since new. A real sailor's boat from the factory, "Godspeed" is equipped with the deep keel, a fully battened standard mainsail, adjustable backstay, telescoping whisker pole, 210' chain rode (with 50' rope) and includes a NEW Highfield inflatable dinghy. The 343 shows some of Beneteau's innovations with a pivoting helm station wheel for better cockpit ergonomics at anchor, and a folding helm seat that gives great access to the swim step.
Located at the Des Moines Marina, call to make an appointment to see this well-kept, clean sailboat.
The Beneteau 343 features two staterooms and a very large head with a separate shower located aft at the companionway.
