Broker’s Comment:
In the 15+ years I have been with RCR Yachts, one of my favorite Beneteau Models has been the Oceanis 423. Since it was first introduced at the 2003 Annapolis Boat Show amid quite the fanfare and curtain raising, it was an instant success. An award winner right from the start. Cruising World’s 2003 Beneteau 423 Best Midsize Cruiser Under $250,000

Excellent sailing and handling characteristics, comfort and stability, great looks and value. Hard to not like the 423. This 2005 has always been in freshwater and has had very good care and maintenance. Current owner has made numerous upgrades during the seven years he has sailed her. Among the upgrades are:

Rarely does the appearance of a new model create as much excitement as this one. Following in the footsteps of the successful Beneteau 473, the Beneteau 423 has been enamoring sailors from coast to coast. Designed by the famous Groupe Finot, naval architects with more production yachts afloat than any other design firm, the Beneteau 423 has both brawn and beauty. She is built to sail confidently in any sea, yet lacks nothing in comfort or beauty.

Below decks, she is all Beneteau with incredible detail to quality woodwork and liveaboard comfort. Above, she touts the finest in marine hardware, innovative features, and a design that makes single or double handed sailing a breeze. And only Beneteau, the world’s largest manufacturer of sailboats, could create such an impressive performance cruiser at such an unbelievable value.

This is a yacht built with her owners’ comfort in mind. She may be all strength and performance above, but below decks, she’s all light and beauty. Down the companionway steps, you’ll discover an imaginative interior design that will delight the most demanding cruising sailor.

This 3-Cabin layout will comfortably sleep 8 people. In the forward master cabin, there’s a comfortable centerline berth with owner’s mattress and sitting area. A private master head features a stall shower. In the salon, entertaining at the dock or cruising with style is carefree with her classic layout and abundant storage. The full-length galley to port features a 3-burner stove, front loading refrigerator with separate freezer, and ample room to provision for long cruises or stocking up for a great dockside party. The aft two cabins each have double berths with hanging locker and storage and a shared head with shower. In addition, the convertible dinette that lowers to create a 4th double berth.
