We offer an outstanding model of the well-known Beneteau 323 for sale. The yacht is well-kept and in excellent condition. High ceilings and big windows in the cabin roof provide lots of light and air into the salon. The boat has two spacious cabins. These are a large aft cabin with a lot of storage space, a big toilet with a shower, and additionally a locker in the cockpit.
Oceanis 323 sails well even with small wind. The hull is built in single laminate with vinyl ester in the outer laminate against osmosis and to release epoxy prior to the bottom material being applied. Strengthening is made with full-covering inner liners below the waterline. Broad cooling flange and large keel bolts with ditto washers are useful in the event of a ground impact.
The interior has wonderful carpentry in dark-stained cherry wood and elegant moldings with rounded edges. With windows on the roof, it is unusually sunny below deck. The layout contains an angle galley, a longitudinal aft lavatory with lots of space, and saloon berths. A chart table, stable folding table, and bow with a hanging locker make the yacht a great vessel for holidays. The rig is 9/10 with simple stern-lined sails, a strong profile, and the mast standing on the deck.
Beneteau launched the Oceanis 323 in 2003, as the smallest in the new Oceanis series. It has a new cabin profile and window on the roof as characterizing features. 323 has a straight bow, short and semi-narrow bow, wide waterline, and a full stern. The superstructure provides plenty of capacity under the deck.
The spacious cockpit, but the distinctive steering wheel that can be turned 90 degrees enhances accessibility and the passage between the steering position and the cockpit. There is a large storage room on the starboard side. Table with dining space for four. Access to the saloon through a spacious opening and ladder. L-galley, longitudinal coaches, and large folding table. The large restroom has a separate shower and toilet with a large septic tank. Big aft cabin completely aft.
Forpig with V-berth. It’s easy to access the engine on three sides.
Sails well, even in relatively light wind. Shares an underwater hull with First 31 which is a typical regatta boat. Easy to handle for one or two people.
