Manufacturer Provided Description

Designed to complete the next generation of Beneteaus, the Beneteau 43 takes its place amongst the beautiful Beneteau 40, 46 and 49. With a strong common exterior appeareance, this four-boat range has a modern, elegant style drawn by naval architects Berret Racoupeau. The striking interior is the work of the famed Italian design office of Nauta Design. The Beneteau 43 is available in two layouts of two or three cabins, both including two heads with showers.


Two cabins, 2 heads with electric quiet flush toilets, fresh or sea water flush Extra storage cabinet in forward stateroom Lee cloth for settee Frig and freezer 32” Sony TV, 6 speaker stereo, DVD, mood lights in solon, 4 cabin fans Extra reading lights in both cabins Forward, the Queen cabin has walk room, a dressing seat, good stowage, and a private head and shower compartment. In the twocabin version, the complementary cabin aft, on the starboard side, has a huge berth in addition to standing room and ample places to stow clothes and personal effects. This cabin has its own door to the main head, which contains a shower stall. The saloon offers a large table with seating on three sides. Both settees are long enough to lie on, and lee cloths would make them comfortable sea berths. An aft-facing chart desk at the foot of the port settee completes the salon. A line of lockers under the side decks ties the entire area together visually and extends to the galley, featuring numerous eye-level storage cabinets. The galley is seaworthy. It's aft, to port of the companionway, where you can reach the necessities: stove, front-opening fridge, top-loading freezer, drawers, and work surfaces with solid fiddles. The companionway entering the cabin offers plentiful handholds:
