Built 1987 with Lifting Keel including excellent launching/yard trailer built locally in 2017.

Good example of this popular cruiser racer from Beneteau, well equipped and maintained.  Hull was epoxied as a preventative measure during the Spring of 2012.  Cabin sleeps 6 persons and benefits from Eberspacher heating.  This lift keel version allows shallower areas to be explored.  The keel bolts were replaced as part of ongoing improvement in 2018.

GRP hull, deck and superstructure in white.  All side decks and cockpit sole finished in moulded nonslip. Stem head fitting with bow roller for anchoring.  Self-bailing anchor locker with hinged cover and strong point.

Stainless steel push and pulpit rails with stanchions connected by double set of guard wires.  New guard wire gates were fitted October 2017.  Guard wires checked and replaced as needed.  The lift keel is raised and lowered on a worm drive mechanism in the main saloon.  The underwater area of the hull was professionally treated with an anti-osmosis treatment in the summer of 2012 with 3 coats of epoxy as a preventative measure.

Large self- bailing cockpit with large storage locker on starboard side.  Twin counter hung rudders with tiller steering.  Rudder ball joints replaced/upgraded July 2018.
