Beneteau Oceanis 473 "Nereid"
Oceanis 473 designer, Jean Finot designed a pretty yacht which offers exceptional performance while being efficiently handled by a small crew and a level of comfort above and below deck that can only be described as luxurious. The keel stepped mast, cabin top traveller, lazy jacks, furling genoa, powerful winches and twin wheels are all factors in sailing efficiency. The spacious cockpit offers complete shelter with spray dodger, bimini/infill. Below deck, there are three double cabins with en-suites, a delightful saloon with light from the many hatches and portlights reflecting on the cherry wood fitout and a galley fit for the fussiest chef.
“Nereida” is in good condition. The current owner has undertaken a comprehensive programme of maintenance and upgrades (See summary in General Remarks). This special boat warrants your serious inspection and consideration.
