Yacht Charters in the British Virgin Islands
Beneteau 523 - 4/5 Cabin Sailboat
*with Air Conditioning*
Group Finot designers, who have come up with a real winner to rival any yacht
in the 50' to 55' range. The Beneteau 523 did not win Sailing Magazine's,
2006 Boat of the Year Award for nothing. They have brought
a much welcomed dimension to the BVI bareboating industry!
like smoke and mirrors or clever attempts to be "innovative". Most
fall flat on their face! The Beneteau 523 offers a no-nonsense layout which
works ... and the designers of this 5 cabin, 5 head sailboat are to be
is straight forward and adds one huge advantage many
yachts of similar size do not possess. The forward cabin is NOT the standard
"coffin" usually designated for crew! Its usable for charter guests
too, though you'd probably like to designate its use for children or hired
the far forward cabin is either from a deck hatch for your hired captain ...
or ... from the starboard cabin located forward of the galley. Children can
pass through their parent's cabin, through the head and into their cabin!
arrive in the British Virgin Islands, you may want to flip a coin to decide who
gets the port aft cabin with separate walk in shower. Otherwise, the two aft
cabins are identical as are the two forward cabins.
is great on the Beneteau 523! Lots of storage space, double sink, 4 burner
stove with oven, a microwave for use at the dock and a front opening fridge
with separate freezer compartment!
cockpit with folding table and wrap around seating is very comfortable with
plenty of room for all. The nearly flush, teak deck is nice and clean! You
won't find any hardware where it shouldn't be. Twin steering wheels are a nice
feature as well.
like the Beneteau 523. Its sure to be a winner throughout the Caribbean and I
have no doubt this yacht will be sailing the British Virgin Islands for many
years to come!
