Powerful, high-quality cruiser packed with innovative features and cruising comforts.

To claim that Beneteau has mastered what it takes to produce successful new boats is a bit of an understatement. The French builder seems to have a direct line into the psyche of sailors the world over. Take the new 423 for example. Groupe Finot is responsible for designing this handsome, versatile 42-foot cruiser that appeals to a broad spectrum of sailors, from hardcore voyagers to casual weekenders looking for a little stress relief with its good performance and great accommodations.

This cruiser is extremely well-engineered, sensibly constructed and outfitted, and does not demand undue maintenance. And, most importantly, you can purchase a nicely equipped model at a competitive price. No wonder Beneteau is the largest sailboat manufacturer in the world.

Review excerpt from Sail Magazine By JOHN KRETSCHMER

Mo Bettah has been extensively equipped for cruising and the next owners will benefit from the upgrades and maintenance she has received in recent years.
