This Beneteau, located just north of Boston, is in great condition. It is race rigged but would make a wonderful cruising boat also.
It is very clean right down to the bilges.
The seller has owned it for 2 seasons having brought it home from the freshwater of Buffalo, NY.
The sail inventory includes 2 symmetrical spinnakers. The roller furled headsails include a new 150 genoa, a 130, and a 110 for when it really starts to blow.
The mainsail drops down into lazy jacks for easy flaking.
It has an adjustable backstay and an autohelm for easy single handling. The 4 Harken winches and all self-tailing.
The mainsail sheets lead to a traveler car located for easy sheeting just forward of the large wheel and binnacle.
The Raymarine wind speed/direction, depth sounder/knot meter, and autohelm gauges are located on the doghouse just forward of the companionway. They can be easily read from the helm.
5 steps down through the companionway to the main salon. It has a complete nav station, with Garmin GPS/plotter, to starboard and the galley to port. The mahogany of the main cabin shines bright with no reported signs of water intrusion and the bilges are very clean.
There is a separate propane locker located for safety topsides in the after section of the cockpit.
The galley to the port side has electric top loading refrigeration, a 2 burner propane stovetop, and an oven below which is gimbaled.
The galley also has hot/cold pressurized water and a 2 bay stainless sink.
The main salon is upholstered in white marine-grade vinyl and it is spotless. There is a centerline table with large folding leafs making it easy to pass through.
The opening portlights and 3 deck hatches provide abundant natural light. There are screens for the portlights.
It easily sleeps 5 with a double vee berth forward, a single quarter berth to starboard, and a double berth to port in the aft.
The head is located to port, forward of the main salon. The Jabsco toilet is manual and also spotless. The is a single sink here with a pressurized hot/cold faucet that can be had held or wall mounted for use as a shower.
The seller utilizes an electric de-humidifier to eliminate any mold or mildew and the large Bowmar deck hatch has a solar ventilator.
For winter storage, a custom canvas cover is included.
The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
Shallow draft version: 5.9’/1.8m.
Ballast: 1100kg/2425 lbs
Farr design #446.
