This 2005 Beneteau 393 is a wonderful performance cruiser and is well suited for a large family or 2 couples. This vessel is both fast & comfortable with a high degree of sea-keeping ability as well as a fine turn of speed on all points of sail.
Her layout is elegant and comfortable with a full galley w/freezer, two enclosed heads w/showers, two private double staterooms—pullman berth forward- -, large and comfortable salon with a flat screen TV, dedicated navigation station, and an outstandingly and secure cockpit with dodger.
Reviews of the Beneteau 393:
“The hull shape, a fairly fine entry at the bow with a broad flat section aft, made reaching a blast. […]The boat handled exceptionally under power (a 40-horsepower Westerbeke), allowing for easy maneuvering in and out of the slip, despite the gusty winds in the harbor.” – Cruising World
“To create a fast passagemaker, Beneteau turned to a design team with deep experience in both racing and cruising: the French naval architects Berret/Racopeau Yacht Design, based in La Rochelle. Their design portfolio includes a number of 6o’ to 117′ custom bluewater cruisers, in the production cruiser category they drew the lines for the Beneteau 361, Beneteau 381 and the Dufour 50. Their racing boat experience runs the gamut from Mini-Transats to Open 50s and 60s.” – Boats.com
