FRESH WATER TANK
LOADED WITH CRUISING GEAR!
This 2002 Beneteau 473 is currently on the hard in Gloucester Point, VA. “Beyzano” is a 3-cabin version of the Beneteau 473 with Blue Hull (repainted in 2014). The first owners brought the yacht across Atlantic from England to the Caribbean and then on to the US. The current owners have owned the boat since 2018 and cruised the US east coast. Their life plans have changed and “Beyzano” is now available to new owners who will sail her to distant horizons! The boat is in very nice condition and has been well cared for. The photos in the listing are up to date and reflect an interior with minimal wear of the wood finishes and floors and soft goods that show extremely well.
The Beneteau 473 a well proven vessel for long passages, with a hull design that takes on open water with superior seakindliness. The sail plan is a classic mainsail for better sailing performance and safety offshore. All halyards and reefing lines are led aft so it is not necessary to venture forward for sail adjustments when under way. There is a stackpack with lazyjacks to control the mainsail. With her intermediate draft option the boat will be stiff going to weather and comfortable on anchor. The interior and cockpit layout are well set up for ‘livability’. This Beneteau 473 has all the cruising gear you could possibly want, with safety in mind and redundancy on the vital equipment.
