The Beneteau 43 is a fast cruising design that offers a dual helm,
large cockpit, generous beam with very easy access from the water via
the swim platform and walk-through transom. Still in her original
ownership and even though she was originally in charter, her usage and
hours are still moderate and it is clear that her owners have taken
special care to keep her in great condition. Unlike many of her three
cabin sister ships, Barefoot Life offers the preferred two head layout
with a spacious separate shower stall.
Her owners have nicely upgraded her for tropical cruising, a standout
feature being a custom arch that holds her solar panels as well as
davits for the dinghy. In recent times she has also received some
valuable electronics and electrical upgrades, her sails replaced and
most of her ground tackle (including a new windlass) upgraded. She is
equipped with a large RIB and outboard, an in-date offshore life raft,
an EPIRB and even a water maker; so she really is all ready to once
again go cruising off the grid with her next owner.
Chris Simpson, also co-owner of BVI Yacht Sales since
1997, has spent all of his working life in the sailing industry, this included 9
years teaching offshore sailing in Europe, including owning his own school for
many of those years, and 7 years as an Operations Manager for a 50 boat charter
company, prior to his Yacht Broker career. Much of his childhood years
were also spent cruising offshore which, combined with his other sailing, totals
around 40,000 miles. Chris’s passion for boats and those that wish to enjoy them
as their pastime, combined with his strong service ethics and keenness to work
towards the smoothest transactions possible, has allowed him to build a loyal
following of buyers and sellers over his 19 years of yacht brokering.
