BVI Yacht Sales Overview

1993 44′ Beneteau 440 Sloop ‘Mira’

This fine example of a Beneteau Oceanis 440 ‘Mira’ is currently located in St Croix in a slip that is transferable to a new owner. This 2 cabin owners version Oceanis 440 offers exceptional comfort aboard coupled with the sparkling performance expected from a hull by Bruce Farr. A great deal of thought has gone into the layout and design both above and below decks to make the yacht easy to handle and comfortable to live aboard. ‘Mira’ is fully equipped for a comfortable life at sea be it island hopping or offshore cruising. She has been continuously loved, updated and outfitted over the years for a comfortable life on the water. Below are just a few key features;

-Bow thruster
-Wind Generator
-Water maker
-Custom Solar Arch/Dinghy Davits
– New Folding MAX Prop (2021)
-NEW rigging (2018)
-NEW Mainsail (2018) Genoa (2017)
-Bottom stripped, rubberised, painted (2017) – Bottom Painted (2021)
-Dropped keel cleaned, Inspected & professionally reinstalled (2017)-Prop shaft and seal replaced (2021)-Bottom paint (2021)
-Custom Bimini with full enclosure by ‘Doyle’ with upgraded ‘Shelter-Rite’
-Much more!!

You will not find another Beneteau 440 that is as well equipped as ‘Mira’. The owners have spared no expense in maintenance and upgrades over the years and they sadly have to pass her on to carry on her adventures. ‘Mira’ is already in the water in some of the best cruising grounds in the world and is ready to hit the high seas as she sits TODAY!


This owners version layout features two large sleeping cabins and plenty of living/entertaining space with many opening ports and hatches for good ventilation and lighting. Starting forward in the master stateroom featuring a queen sized centerline berth with private ensuite head and shower. Custom cabinetry made and installed by the Beneteau dealer here in the BVI along both the port and starboard side of the V-berth for added storage.

Moving aft we have the custom saloon that makes for a very comfortable interior and provides an extra large Nav station desk with plenty of storage. To starboard we have a large U-shaped settee with table which converts to a double berth. Aft of the nav station is the guest head with shower and then the guest stateroom with large berth and private entrance to the head. Aft of the salon on the starboard side is the galley with double stainless sinks, propane stove with oven, plenty of storage and fridge with freezer.

Entertaining is made easy with a two-leaf fiberglass cockpit table and teak inlay seating. The cockpit features a custom helm and plenty of shade thanks to the custom bimini enclosure that has full shade screens or isinglass enclosure to stay dry on those rough days at sea. The helm seat folds down to make a walk through to the sugar scoop transom making for easy access boarding the dinghy or getting in and out of the water on the swim ladder.

Bruce Farr designed the Oceanis 440 for maximum performance with minimal effort. Her bulb keel with winglets, gives optimum lift and stability plus all the benefits of shoal draft. She is equipped with all new oversized standing rigging, in-mast furling mainsail system and furling genoa with all control lines led aft to the cockpit. This is a perfect example of a fast, extremely comfortable and most importantly, safe cruising boat.
