2002 Beneteau 473

Glen Cove, New York


The Beneteau 473 combines extraordinary interior comfort, volume and light with bluewater strength. Designed by Groupe Finot, the 473 offers a unique combination of elegant lines with extraordinary space and performance. The Beneteau 473 is a well-known and sought-after cruising sailboat. One differentiating feature on the 473 is its keel-stepped mast, rare on production boats today. The masthead rig with its double aft-swept spreaders also has twin backstays and a baby stay. It's no wonder the 473 was chosen by Cruising World as Boat of the Year. This vessel has been extremely well cared for and loved by her original owner.
