The 53 looks good, sails fast, and offers a choice of interiors that rivals most custom boatbuilders. The construction quality places these boats into the serious bluewater cruiser realm. The 53 is built in a two-part mold with a fiberglass structural grid tabbed to the hull and a reinforcing aluminum grid below the saloon sole for additional strength and stiffness. A full-length liner is then placed in the hull and is topped by a balsa-cored deck. Below the waterline is a cast iron keel with a bulb, available with a draft of 7’5” or 5’10” for the shoal version. She displaces 33,000 pounds and sports a beam of 15’7”, which makes her moderately light and not too beamy – read “fast.”
This is the shoal draft model (5'10") and the lowest priced Jeanneau 53 available in the U.S. This excellent performance cruiser is ideal for charter or family use and is the five cabin layout with center-line queen forward, Separate captain's cabin in the bow and an over under midships cabin in addition to two aft cabins.
All offers encouraged.
