Decks and Equipment
The deck is joined to the hull with mechanical fastenings every six inches and 3M 5200 adhesive/sealant. The hull is fabricated of hand-laid solid fiberglass with an isophthalic gel coat to impair osmosis. A molded fiberglass grid is bonded to the hull to provide structural integrity, which includes reinforcing the hull itself and accepting torsional, compressive and tensile loads associated with the rigging and use. The deck is of sandwich construction, cored with end-grain balsa. The standard keel is cast-iron with a winged bulb and it is bolted to the hull; an aluminum mast is stepped on the top of the keel.
Spacious Salon and Cabin
Hanging lockers have ceiling liners at least to the waterline for protection against mildew and condensation. The forward stateroom has a double berth to starboard. To port are a locker and settee; a prospective owner might investigate reconfiguring the space for better storage. The bed of course has good capacity beneath in drawers. The head forward includes a shower.
Engine Space and Acces
Aft Cabin and Head
We are pleased to present this well kept Benneteau 400 for your consideration. Upon boarding her for the first time, I was impressed by the spacious cockpit and the aft deck. There is a good line management system making it possible to sail her solo and the life raft is positioned perfectly on the mid deck with easy access in case of emergency.
Downsatairs, the boat is well thought out with a spacious salon and navigation station area. A "railroad style galley on the port side leads down to a very spacious and comfortable aft cabin with lots of natural light. There is a marine head and shower ensuite!. The for cabin has a queen size bed and setee as well as a hanging closet and in the boa is the second head. The dining area is quite large and can easily seat six to eight people and is close to the galley for ease of service!
Like any boat of this age, there are things that could be changed, improved or updated, but overall, she is a very sweet blue water boat. She is fully equipped and ready to go with minimal maintenance. She would make a great live aboard yet is quite capable if you wish to circumnavigate the globe! Call for a showing and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime.
