Most any yacht this age easily shows its history of use, and here we have a fine Beneteau that truly defies its age! This is a large and comfortable cruising sailboat, nicely equipped, regularly maintained and updated, and is ready to sail anywhere again and again!
Designed for Beneteau by Germán Frers -- the famous designer of Swan yachts the past forty years! This Beneteau is a beauty intended for comfortable and swift offshore passagemaking, combined with thoughtful features at anchor as seen with the fold-out transom/swimstep.
--Ample solar and wind power free you of the need or bother of a generator.
--New top-quality mainsail and genoa (2017)
--Recent deck/cabin/cockpit Alwgrip paint, and new teak in cockpit - looks fantastic!
--Detachable inner-forestay and runningbacks for heavy-weather sailing
--Someone has made a long habit of cleaning the engine - looks great and IS great, predicted reliable for many more years.
--New 230' of 3/8" anchor chain, new SSB/HAM transceiver & modem, two autopilots, and on and on -- read the Full Specifications, freely ask your questions, and find yourself making flight reservations here before someone else does!
Your Idylle Beneteau is conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean! While tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane-safe storage, same day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it! Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja). Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do. Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!
