Here is what John Kretschmer of Sailing Magazine had to say about the Beneteau 423:

"Powerful, high-quality cruiser packed with innovative features and cruising comforts"

"To claim that Beneteau has mastered what it takes to produce successful new boats is a bit of an understatement. The French builder seems to have a direct line into the psyche of sailors the world over. Take the new 423 for example. Groupe Finot is responsible for designing this handsome, versatile 42-foot cruiser that appeals to a broad spectrum of sailors, from hardcore voyagers to casual weekenders looking for a little stress relief with its good performance and great accommodations.

This cruiser is extremely well-engineered, sensibly constructed and outfitted, and does not demand undue maintenance. No wonder Beneteau is the largest sailboat manufacturer in the world.

From the moment I first spied the new 423 I knew it would be a pleasure to sail. As we approached this powerful sloop I took a moment to observe as it cut through the water. The sheerline, although thoroughly modern, is a little softer than Beneteau's racy First Series boats, and there is a subtle curve to the hull that speaks to the cruiser. The bow is not plumb, there is a short but appealing rake and the reverse transom allows for easy-access swim steps. The cabin-trunk blends beautifully into the hull, especially the low-slung forward section that is partially hidden by the raised bulwark when viewed from sea level....."



The Hallmark of Beneteau's advanced woodwork is its joiner work. This includes hardwood fiddles, door frames and trim pieces with custom marine grade, zero void, multi-laminate wood faces and bulkheads. The wood is DOUKA, in family of mahogany, known for its beauty of grain. All the wood is finished in a lustrous multicoat varnish with a Cherry stain tint.
