More Details

Designed by the famous Groupe Finot, naval architects with more production yachts afloat than any other design firm, the Beneteau 423 has both brawn and beauty. A confident bluewater hull combined with extraordinary comfort, gorgeous interior woodwork, loads of volume and plenty of light will satisfy the most demanding sailors whether it is for offshore sailing or cruising in the harbor.

·       Added inner forestay, removable and stowable on spreader keepers. This is for the added #2 jib, which is built to storm jib specs and can be reefed to storm jib size. Can be used in 18 knots and up instead of reefing genoa. Jib comes with a day bag for storing on deck.

·       Added third reef to mainsail so it can be reefed to storm trysail size. Per Neil Pryde sail makers, no separate try sail needed.

·       Added retractable lazy jacks.  Mainsail has never had any wear due to lazy jacks being left up during sail
