The Oceanis 473 is good sized monohull, designed for cruising: stable and balanced under sail, easy to handle on your own if needed and behaves well in heavier conditions thanks to her deep draft (2.10m).
The interior is the 3-cabin version and ideal for a family. The forepeak cabin is the owner’s suite with a large double bed, bench and private heads with shower. Aft are 2 double cabins, both roomy with they own heads. On the starboard side the heads has been set up as storage/ work area, a plus for cruising. The saloon is light, with a decent sized chart table, galley in long format and large table. Venus is fully equipped to live on board: 2 fridges, fresh and sea water in the galley, the varnish and the upholstery is in good condition. See the full comfort options in the inventory.
The boat has benefitted from regular upkeep and improvements: new batteries with a neat and tidy electric panel, standing rigging from 2014 with a removable baby stay added in 2015, bimini with drop sun shades in sunbrella, dodger from 2018, solid davits in aluminium (MarinAlu) with solar panels, sails regularly maintained.
A sailboat that’s the right size for a family to cruise comfortably, well maintained and well equipped at a good price.
