The Beneteau 50 has an exceptional reputation for being fun, fast, capable cruisers which are perfectly suited to anything from family cruising to shorthanded blue water passages and club racing. Designed by Bruce Farr, this vessel is the performance model with a deeper fin keel, and boasts truely impressive sailing performance which will excite even the most discerning yachtsman. The build quality is excellent, as you would expect from Beneteau, and this vessel has been very well maintained by fastidious owners, please note this vessel has never been into charter.

Inside, the gleaming varnish work is in pristine condition, and the layout makes excellent use of the large internal volume. The rich timber finish enhances the feel of the boat below and is a step above what is currently being fitted in the newer models. To port is the large dinette with seating for 8 in comfort, and to starboard is the well equipped galley with island bench, fridge, freezer, gas oven, and microwave. With ample storage through out, the galley is perfectly suited to both entertaining, or extended passages, and is well set up for comfortable cooking at sea. Forward of the saloon is the Master Stateroom. This area would be the envy of many larger vessels, and boasts a large queen sized bed, separate lounge seating, and work station/desk. The ensuite is divided into a separate shower room and toilet, both with full vanities. This really is luxury accommodation at its finest!

Further accommodation is aft in the twin double cabins. Both have excellent headroom, large queen size berths, storage, and full ensuites. A seperate crew cabin is located forward, accessible from deck and features two single bunks, toilet and vanity.

On deck, the cockpit layout is ideal for shorthanded sailing, with the electric primary winches next to each helm station. With excellent electronics, autopilot, and deck gear, the vessel is easily manageable by a couple whilst retaining its excellent performance. This vessel also has NEW (NOV 2019) standing rigging, an excellent sail inventory including storm jib for offshore sailing plus excellent all round vision from the helm station even with the dodger and bimini in place

Powered by a well maintained 78HP Volvo Penta diesel, this vessel cruises comfortably and economically at 7.5 knots. It also features a bow thruster for stress free berthing.

This vessel presents in excellent condition through out, and is ready to go on its next adventure. With its comprehensive inventory and upgrades, it would suit buyers looking for anything from a coastal cruiser, to an offshore passage maker, and would also make an excellent club social racer.
