2006 Beneteau

Oceanis 343

$110,000 CAD

Halifax , NS

The Beneteau 343 was conceived and built for those who want to cruise, but demand the agility and bluewater safety of a performance yacht. Designed by Berret -Recoupeau, the hull and sailplan offer the best of both worlds. And, with all lines being led aft to the cockpit, even single handed sailing is a breeze on this sailboat. As the industry leader for technological and comfort innovations, the team at Beneteau excelled on this model. In the cockpit alone, you’ll find two great amenities: the patented pivoting steering pedestal and swiveling helmsman seat. The cockpit becomes even more liveable and easy to navigate when you factor in the offset rear entrance and easy sliding companionway. It’s all part of a total yacht designed to make your life under sail - and at the dock - easier and smarter.

Down below, you’ll find the 343 is truly a Beneteau. An efficient interior layout with incredible woodwork and elaborate upholstery provide an ambience rarely seen in a boat of this size or of this value. Light abounds through the hull ports, multiple hatches and skylights on the split-level coach roof. These same hatches allow for terrific ventilation whether you’re at sail or anchored in a secluded cove. For the gourmet, the galley offers all the comforts of home - including ample storage, working counter space, two burner stove, stainless steel sink, and large front-loading refrigerator/freezer. This two cabin version 343 is a comfortable vessel for a cruising couple or a family. However, if you have lots of sailing friends, you can easily welcome up to 6 guests.

This vessel was bought new through Ocean Yacht Sales by the current owner.  This one owner boat is definitely worth a look!
