General Description

This 2004 Beneteau 473 combines luxury, and comfort with performance and bluewater strength.

Designed by the well-known Groupe Finot and built by Beneteau in South Carolina, MERLIN’s elegant lines are complimented by an extraordinarily spacious interior. When MERLIN’s current owners purchased her in 2013 they made several upgrades in their first year in anticipation of living aboard for an extended time. She is more than “fit up” with creature comforts and equipped to live off the grid in comfort indefinitely (Kyocera solar panels, Air Breeze wind generator & Spectra Cape Horn Extreme water-maker). She is powered by a Yanmar 4JH3-TE 75 hp turbo with 4,300 hours, and equipped with twin helm wheels, a Neil Pryde in-mast furling mainsail and genoa, a North Sails 3DL staysail, a Sunbrella dodger, connector & bimini with Phifertex side curtains. Below decks, she comfortably sleeps 6+, has 2 heads (one with an enclosed shower), and a cabin converted to a storage/workspace. The Main Salon is open and beautifully appointed with custom upholstery for the settees, a convertible teak dinette, smart TV, CD/DVD with USB connection, and plenty of storage. The Galley has double stainless steel sinks, a microwave, a Force 10 3 burner stove w oven, a Frigoboat refrigeration system, and ample storage. After 9 years of living aboard, and a lifetime of cruising adventures, the current owners are ready for a little Terra Firma. MERLIN has been professionally maintained, is in MINT condition, is turnkey, and sail-ready.
