NOW REDUCED!!
The Beneteau 43 is a fast cruising design that offers a dual helm, large cockpit, generous beam with very easy access from the water via the swim platform and walk-through transom. Still in her original ownership and even though she was originally in charter, her usage and hours are still moderate and it is clear that her owners have taken special care to keep her in great condition. Unlike many of her three cabin sister ships, Barefoot Life offers the preferred two head layout with a spacious separate shower stall.
Her owners have nicely upgraded her for tropical cruising, a standout feature being a custom arch that holds her solar panels as well as davits for the dinghy. In recent times she has also received some valuable electronics and electrical upgrades, her sails replaced and most of her ground tackle (including a new windlass) upgraded. She is equipped with a large RIB and outboard, an in-date offshore life raft, an EPIRB and even a water maker; so she really is all ready to once again go cruising off the grid with her next owner.

Layout
(3 Cabin / 2 Head)
Starting most forward is a double V berth cabin. To port is an extra settee followed by a hanging locker. There are shelved units above, outboard of the bed. There are also two additional cubbies in the cabin for ample storage. To starboard is a hanging locker followed by the ensuite head with separate shower stall. The head includes an inboard facing toilet followed by the hand basin aft outboard. The head can only be accessed via the forward head.
Aft of the forward cabin is the main salon. The linear galley is to port with the single sink forward followed by the stove/oven and fridge most aft. The built in microwave is above the fridge with cupboards forward above the sink and stove for stowage of galley equipment. Aft of the galley to port is the forward facing navigation station with separate seat. There are cupboards above the seat and chart table along with storage in the chart table. Communication instruments are mounted outboard.
Opposite the galley to starboard, is a C shaped settee with love seat inboard that surrounds the dining area. Cupboards and a shelved unit line the above outboard area of the C shaped settee for storage. The salon table can also be converted to a double berth as required. Further aft of the dining area is the aft head. Most forward is the separate shower stall followed by the hand basin outboard and an inboard facing toilet. This head can be accessed via the main salon and the aft starboard cabin.
Most aft are the two mirrored aft cabins. Each has a hanging locker forward of the double beds. There is also additional storage aft of the starboard bed. Each have shelved units outboard of the bed.
