2004 Beneteau 473

Hudson River, New York


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 or daysailing with the family.

This Beneteau 473 is well equipped and has been kept in excellent condition.  She is the desirable 3-Cabin Owner's Version featuring a huge owners stateroom forward with ensuite head and two private guest cabins aft.  This layout has the accommodations and storage to take the whole family cruising!  This Beneteau 473 has been lovingly cared for and thoughtfully upgraded... her owners' diligence is apparent.  Here are some highlights of the extensive equipment list...
