2007 Beneteau 473 Meltimi is proudly offered for sale, exclusively with DBY Sales.

This design I had the enjoyment of owning myself, having bought a new 3 cabin version in France, and sailing with my family to Australia.

I have always said this was the best design I have ever owned. She gave us 2 years of fun and reliability. At the end of our journey our resale was equally impressive as she ended up after 20000 nm as new. So tough and reliable is this design.

This is the reason the 473 was active as a design for so long.

Her super wide and powerful transom complemented beam carried well forward and clipper bow keeps her very stable and dry, both upwind and down.

The form stability that the 473 boasts enables a lighter weight for her size and delivers speed as well as comfort.

Meltimi is one of the last produced being a 2007 with fibreglass decks.

She is the 3-cabin owner version with stateroom and private bathroom forward and twin aft doubles.

Her main saloon is huge and can seat eight. It also can be converted for more accommodation.

To starboard is a well-appointed L shaped galley with microwave, gas stove and oven. She has a good volume fridge freezer.

The sit down nav table to port is also a good size, and has a console of instruments to work with.

The 473 transom is a standout. Accessed by walking through the huge cockpit and twin steering wheels, the aft transom is a good-sized swimming platform giving great access to the water and finishing with the handy hot and cold shower.

The cockpit is an entertainer’s paradise. Very generous with plenty of seating and table space.

She features all electric main winches, modest 2.1 metre draft with bulb keel.
