Gorgeous ONE OWNER 1997 Beneteau Oceanis that was immaculately maintained and was only sailed in the fresh water of Lake Michigan. One of the first North American Beneteaus to be purchased new by our long time client she has been serviced and cold storage kept here every year until just this season. She has a bright white fiberglass deck with a roomy stern cockpit, shiny brightwork and a wheel with an autopilot.
She has a beautiful, spacious and meticulously clean cherry wood cabin interior with great head room, a gas stove, stainless sink, pump head, roomy aft cabin, navigation table, salon sitting area and extra bunks in the forepeak.
She is equipped with an 18hp Yanmar fuel injected Diesel engine with an unusually clean engine compartment for her age. All equipment has been maintained or updated. Custom North Sails sails were purchased in 2009 and have been professionally cleaned once since the purchase. Batons were removed and stored in original container and overall the sails are in beautiful condition. Additionally, in 2015, a local rigger named Don Masey, made new outer shrouds to replace the originals.
This is an absolutely excellent sailboat in fantastic condition with so many good years left! The boat has just been detailed and moved to outside storage for the first time in her life in order to accommodate immediate transport anywhere in the US and is priced right to sell quickly with the winter storage bill already paid in full for this winter should the new owner desire to keep her here with us until spring.
If you are seriously looking for a like new sail boat in this size category do yourself a favor and come see her in person for yourself before its too late!
