To claim that Beneteau has mastered what it takes to produce successful new boats is a bit of an understatement. The French builder seems to have a direct line into the psyche of sailors the world over. The new 423 developed by Groupe Finot is responsible for designing this handsome, versatile 42-foot cruiser that appeals to a broad spectrum of sailors, from hardcore voyagers to casual weekenders looking for a little stress relief with its good performance and great accommodations.
This cruiser is extremely well-engineered, sensibly constructed and outfitted, and does not demand undue maintenance. And, most importantly, you can purchase this Beneteau 423 for only $159,500 No wonder Beneteau is the largest sailboat manufacturer in the world.
