This two-cabin 2008 Beneteau 46 is in excellent condition, and owned by a knowledgeable sailor who has many upgrades in the last 2yrs for the boat. She has been meticulously maintained, never chartered, and has lots of cruiser-desired additions. She is extremely well equipped with all the options an experienced sailor would consider essential including a 75 horsepower Yanmar in lieu of the standard 54 hp engine, An electric Lewmar port side winch, a bow thruster, Raymarine ST60 sailing instruments and E120 Radar/Plotter with AIS and Sirius weather, additional 19 gal fuel tank w/Groco GPBR-1 Transfer pump, and a 3 blade Flex-o-fold three blade prop. Her sail inventory includes Doyle Four in mast furling with a vertically battened mainsail and a Doyle Tri-Radial 140 roller furling Genoa.
The simplicity of the deck design and sailing systems becomes apparent as soon as you enter the cockpit. A full canvas enclosure provides complete protection from the elements. All the sail control lines are led aft, under a deck cover, to the cockpit.
The cockpit of features twin wheels, a design concept sailors have come to appreciate from Beneteau. A large, molded table incorporates a chart plotter that is highly visible from either wheel. An advantage of the twin wheels becomes apparent when tacking. The helmsman can throw off the sheet from the low side wheel as he comes about, shift to the other wheel and haul in the sheet. It's an easy one-man job and it feels natural.
She is attractively priced at $219,900 REDUCED $199,500, so call today for a boarding appointment; you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the exceptional condition and equipment on board.
