46' Beneteau America 2003


The Beneteau 473 designed by Groupe Finot, was named Cruising World Magazine's "Boat of the Year". Since that time, the 473 has redefined the sailing world's notion of the performance cruiser concept. Beneteau 473 is equally at home on a passage to Bermuda or daysailing with the family.
