Total LOA 43'2". This Beneteau was built in the South Carolina plant, so a Canadian buyer would not have to pay the import duty.

The Beneteau Oceanis was designed by the well-known Finot Group to have exceptional living space, excellent performance and appealing lines and styling. Built with a shallow bilge and high freeboard, it boasts 6'5" standing headroom in the salon. The scoop transom walk-through allows for easy boarding from the swim step and also features a storage compartment and swim ladder. The cockpit has ample seating and a nice helm station. The running rigging is easily accessible, clearly labeled and neatly tailed.

Upon entering the salon down the companionway the galley is just to starboard. It features a gimbaled propane stove/oven, built in microwave, dual stainless sink, front loading refrigerator and top loading freezer. The culinarily-inclined owner has added a magnetized spice and knife rack to save space. Opposite of the galley is a navigation station on the portside. It has a nice chart table, and Raymarine E-80 Radar/Chartplotter, stereo controls and a VHF Radio.

Forward of the navigation station is a portside lounge seat. The salon dinette is on the starboard side - it is a U-shaped dinette capable of seating six adults. The salon table has an expandable leaf and also folds down to create a queen sized guest berth. The master stateroom is in the forepeak - it is a queen-sized walkaround with seats on either side, hanging lockers and drawer storage. The master head is just aft - it has a manual head, sink with vanity, and a pull out shower head.

The aft cabin has a very large berth and a hanging locker. The guest head or day head is just forward of the aft stateroom.

Hydronic heating with three independent zones.

4 burner Diesel cooker

Broker's Comments

This two-cabin Beneteau Oceanis 423 has been kept and sailed by a very knowledgeable owner. It has many upgrades including diesel hydronic heat with on-demand hot water, Raymarine E-120 Radar/Chartplotter, 2000W Magnum inverter, AGM batteries, dinghy with 6HP outboard and more. It has a roller furling jib and in-mast furling mainsail so it is easy to single-hand. The cockpit enclosure is a nice addition for all-season cruising - the windows are quite clear because of the protective exterior snap-on covers.

The interior is lovely and comfortable. The salon upholstery has been replaced with attractive green leatherette upholstery in place of the standard fabric. The salon is well-lit and airy and large, with plenty of elbow room. The interior woodwork provides a very warm, nautical feel.

The versatile Beneteau 423 is capable of bluewater sailing, racing or just comfortable family cruising, making it a desirable boat for sailors looking to enjoy boating in many ways. It was named "Boat of the Year" by Cruising World magazine because of its design, quality and value. This particular 423 has a nice equipment list and has been well maintained making it a great value in today's marketplace.
