40' Beneteau Oceanis 400 1993
Every once in a while I get to list a boat with the WOW factor and "ENFIN" is one of those boats. The condition of the interior is stunning with beautiful wood tones and matching blue fabrics that bring out the true essence of the Beneteau 40. You will be amazed at her beauty.
"ENFIN" is a French designed cruiser manufactured in the US by Beneteau and outfitted with all the equipment necessary to make sailing safe and enjoyable such as a furling mainsail and genoa deployable from a large cockpit, a swim platform and walk-thru transom, large Bimini, built-in cockpit table and cooler and an electric windlass.
A spacious salon and galley on the main deck is equipped with hot and cold running water at the stainless steel sink, three burner propane stove and oven, a microwave, and new Technautics CoolBlue Marine freezer/refrigeration system. The two cabin two head arrangement offers privacy and convenience with the day head located at the foot of the companionway. A dinette provides space for 6 at meal time and converts to a double berth.
The vessel is equipped with dual air conditioning units, a hot water heater powered by 120V AC or with engine heat when under way, a Newmar 40 Amp PT-40U battery charger/power supply, and a high efficiency 4.5Kw AC generator. New keel bolts were installed in 2017 and all thru-hull fittings were reconditioned or replaced along with attendant hoses.
A recent compound and wax and bottom paint along with annual oil and filter changes makes this well maintained vessel fully ready for the 2020 sailing season.
