    Well maintained & equipped 3-cabin (all en-suite) cruising yacht with a great blue water / liveaboard specification.


    FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
    Launched in 2005, GAEL FORCE 1 is an Australian Registered well-maintained comfortable family cruising yacht ideal for sailing with family and friends either for short day trips/weekends or for the more adventurous, venturing across oceans. She has had two owners with some charter work undertaken, whilst her current owners have made light use of her with them only using her for about three months per year since they purchased her in 2013. However, they have made continual improvements to ensure that she is in great working condition and ready for her next adventures. With her 3-en-suite double cabins plus a spacious saloon, she provides for spacious comfortable living accommodation but with her having the benefit of the deep draft option, should also allow for some spirited sailing. Her highlights include:-
    3 double cabin layout with three ensuite heads plus a spacious saloon
    GRP decks
    Deep draft option (2.11m) fin keel
    Shaft driven Yanmar 4JH3TE 75hp diesel engine

    PRESS REVIEW:

    The Beneteau 473 was created by the French design firm Groupe Finot and built by Beneteau in both France and South Carolina between 2000 and 2005, making GAEL FORCE 1 a late build of this popular model. In the world of production boats a few models always stand out, and for the 130 year-old company Beneteau, the 473 is a notable model that’s much desired by cruisers who want performance, oodles of room, and a good value.

    On Deck
    Although considered a coastal cruiser by some, the 473 could certainly go the distance in most bluewater situations. More Beneteaus have crossed an ocean than any other brand, but of course, that could be because with its long history, Beneteau has built more hulls than any other production builder.
    One differentiating feature on the 473 is its keel-stepped mast, rare on production boats today. The masthead rig with its double aft-swept spreaders also has twin backstays and a baby stay. The original genoa was spec’d at 140% for a sail plan of about 1,100 square feet. The traveller is at the companionway so there is mid-boom sheeting and the primary winches are electric, so it’s all about pushbutton sailing.
    The hull is solid glass with an integral grid liner and the deck is cored with balsa. The nearly plumb bow affords a waterline length just three feet shorter than her length overall. Two drafts were available and the boat is fairly wide in the backside, carrying her beam well aft. Of course, that provides it with an exceptionally comfortable cockpit with twin wheels on either side of the walkthrough, which leads from the companionway all the way aft to the swimstep. The broad stern, however, can be somewhat pushed around by following seas.

    Down Below
    The large galley is to starboard and has so much countertop space you could almost lounge on it. In the two cabin version, the galley got extra space and three can work simultaneously in the area provided. The freezer is top-loading and the fridge has a side door which makes looking for that lost stick of butter easy. The twin sinks are on the centreline to drain well on either tack. A glossy interior combined with the numerous hatches and fixed ports make the interior light and bright.

    The forward-facing nav station is opposite and has a well-sized desk and plenty of bulkhead space to mount instruments. The saloon itself is immense, with a U-shaped settee and bench seat to starboard that can accommodate up to seven around a large table. A slightly curved, two-seat bench is to port. Cubbies are everywhere and there’s no shortage of room for anything you’d want to take on an extended cruise.
    The master stateroom forward has an island berth and a private head with electric toilet and stall shower. A second manual head is aft just ahead of the portside guest cabin, which has a bunk that could practically sleep four. While some models have a third cabin, those without it have an immense lazarette to starboard that can be accessed from the cockpit or the galley.
