The Beneteau 473, designed by Groupe Finot, was named Cruising World Magazine's "Boat of the Year" when introduced to North America in 2001. Since that time the 473 has redefined the sailing world's notion of the performance cruiser concept... speed, comfort, simplicity, and beauty are all words that come to mind; making the Beneteau 473 equally at home on a passage to Bermuda as daysailing with the family. 


TRUE BLUE is a very special Beneteau 473...


Refit in 2016, her sleek lines are accentuated by a stunning Flag Blue Awlgrip hull finish that still shines like new; this Beneteau 473 turns heads everywhere she sails.


TRUE BLUE is the desirable 2-Cabin Owner's Version featuring a huge owners stateroom forward with ensuite head and private guest cabin aft to port with a 2nd head and a garage/mechanical room aft to starboard. This layout has the accommodations and high capacity storage necessary for long distance cruising and the space to take the whole family sailing!

TRUE BLUE has been lovingly cared for and thoughtfully upgraded throughout her life. Her owners' diligence is apparent.  Here are some highlights of the extensive equipment list and key upgrades...
