|BENETEAU makes SENSE
The Beneteau Sense range of yachts are without doubt the most stylish cruising yachts afloat today. Cutting edge European design with a complete life on, around and in the water is the driving concept behind the Sense 43. Expansive, light filled, luxurious and comfortable interiors with rich natural timbers are blended with modern living standards and large windows providing views of the ocean and your favourite anchorage.
"Jayd", is a two cabin variant with large doubles in the V-berth and the port midships, both with excellent storage capacity.
She has been lovingly cared for since her delivery in late 2011 and cruised in Moreton Bay and up to the Whitsundays on occasion. She has provided her owners with safe fast passage with great ergonomics for adults and small children alike.
She has competed at two Hamilton Island race weeks crushing her similar sized competition in any off wind drag race.
The hull of the Sense 43 is a symphony of design features that give her both fantastic sea keeping abilities and sparkling performance.
Designed to acheive optimum performance at a pleasant 15degrees of heel, her hull has great volume in her aft sections. The flat run aft of the hull is accentuated by her long chines which put all her power to good use.
Twin rudders ensure control at all times.
The Sense 43 has unparrelled access to the sea with wide transom afforded by her low transom profile and folding helm seating. The cockpit has seating equivilant to any yacht in the 50ft range and enjoys great integration with saloon area.
All that separates the very wide cockpit from the saloon is three low steps. The companionway is enormous, so that traffic can flow easily into the interior. The twin helm stations are pushed all the way aft to maximise this area. The focal point is a collapsible table to starboard with wrap-around bench seating that converts to a sun bed.
Perhaps the cockpit's best features are the two enormous stowage lockers on either side. Big enough to easily swallow fuel jugs, sails, rolled up tenders and outboard motors.
The in-line galley is laid out to port behind a sturdy center island and has huge amounts of counter space. Twin sinks are complimented by ample useful storage space along with a pair of excellent working areas on either side of the stove. The dinette and wraparound settee directly opposite are roomy and comfortable. The saloon easily accommodates six adults and also folds for additional guest accommodation. The central islan hides a remote, pop-up Samsung Flat Screen Smart TV.
The navigation station, which runs alongside the aft edge of the settee with a view through a window directly into the cockpit, the desk is quite long, with plenty of room for laying out charts and papers, and there is lots of room in the overhanging cabinets.
The walk through, two access shower / toilet is well appointed.
Both cabins are filled with natural light and great ventalation.
Great storage and good sized doubles are also a feature of the SENSE43
It is very rare to find a Sense 43 on the market and in such excellent condition and this vessel will appeal to the discerning cruising yacht buyer. A new example will set you back over $500,000 plus so be quick to secure your private viewing of this elegant and extremely capable stunner!
