Broker's Comments

Sometimes this job is pure joy. Every now and again one comes across a gem of a yacht, and this is one of those times. This Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 40CC is an almost perfect example of how a boat should be looked after, used, and then prepared for sale. She could pass muster on the stand at the Southampton Boat Show!

I do like centre cockpit boats, the spacious luxury is unashamed. The aft cabin suite is large, beautifully finished and PRIVATE! The en-suite heads is bright and roomy. This, folks, can make the difference between a scrambled week of glorified camping afloat and a relaxed and pleasant voyage.

The passage forward is large enough to give full headroom and incorporate the well designed galley and enormous twin-lidded chest fridge. The woodwork exudes quality, the fixtures and fittings are robust and well sited. Forward again and there is a forward facing chart table with plenty of storage space and room for all the electronics you’ll need. The Raymarine MFD shows chart plotter and Radar, together with a repeater which adorns the coachroof in the cockpit.

Talking of the cockpit, it is well protected, well laid out and the fixed windscreen is streets ahead of the usual cloudy sprayhood we are all used to! The canvass converts the space into a fourth cabin area – I call this feature “the conservatory!”

This yacht has done the distance, she has been to the Med, coming back form France overland, but you wouldn’t think so to look at her – her sails are brand-spanking new and hardly used (much to the owner’s regret).

You have simply GOT to come and see this yacht. I’ll shut up now.
