Broker's Comments

This Beneteau boasts an amazing amount of space, whether you are in the cockpit, saloon or cabins I think this comes from her design era compared to more modern models. Internally she is fitted out with cherry veneer with a lustre that exudes warmth and comfort. The upholstery is also in good condition. She has the most gigantic fridge I have ever seen on a 38ft boat will definitely keep the beers cool! Current owners since 2008 tell me she has been used for weekends in the Solent and 3 week trips during the summer then wintered ashore every year. She is set up to be sailed comfortably with several crew or single handed. She boasts a recently installed engine (2013) hardly used (under 200 hours), a high capacity battery bank installed 2014, high performance battery charger (2015) and a 140 amp alternator all of these mod cons and low consumption LED lighting she is certainly well geared up for anchorage or marina hopping. Entertainment system : was upgraded in 2013 to include radio with aux input, USB and Bluetooth and with remote control. Speakers were upgraded to HiFi speakers in the cabin and speakers fitted in the cockpit with isolating switch in the cockpit. Fantastic to have radio, music and podcasts while on a longer passage.
