Beneteau Sense 43 - Fine Cotton - $279,000

Fine Cotton, a 2012 Beneteau Sense 43, is now for sale exclusively with the team at YOTI on Sydney Harbour. 

French yacht designers Berret & Racoupeau introduced the Sense 43 in 2010-2011. Their innovative twin rudder and boat chine offer stable and sleek sailing performance with a low angle of heel. In the Beneteau Sense 43 we see a combination of luxury and performance while offering comfort and style that can be enjoyed by cruisers and racers alike. 

Fine Cotton is powered by a Yanmar 54hp sail drive with 3-blade feathering prop. Her sails are original with upgraded #2 Genoa from 2013. She has a well-equipped electronics package with Raymarine E125 touchscreen chart plotter, AIS and ST70 wind, speed and depth instrumentation, autopilot and cockpit controlled anchor winch with chain counter. The open-plan cockpit with folding table and retractable helm seats allows for comfortable sailing or sunbathing and easy access to the water. 

The Sense was designed to allow free flowing space from the deck to the roomy saloon and living spaces. With only 3 steps to the elevated saloon, her interior is fresh and flooded in natural sunlight. Her in-line galley offers lots of countertops, two fridges and twin stainless steel sinks. The middle island drops to seat everyone around the large dining table - which also doubles as an additional double berth. Her nav station is tucked neatly to starboard with a chart table suitable for navigation. 

The sleeping quarters in Fine cotton are in the forward third of the yacht with a double cabin to port, head and shower to starboard and the owner's master cabin with bulkhead mounted TV and lots of natural light in the forward section of the boat. 

The Sense 43 would be well suited to cruising with ample storage in her two cockpit lockers while also offering a very simple sailing plan with all lines leading aft to cockpit jammers and Harken S/T winches (with electric halyard winch). 

If you are looking for a fast and comfortable cruising yacht with excellent entertaining areas and a large roomy cockpit, then 'Fine Cotton' is the perfect solution.
