2002 47′ Beneteau 473 ‘Smart Move’

Another winning ‘plan’ from Groupe Finot. This is a fast, spacious, practical and fun vessel to sail. Smart Move has been thoughtfully outfitted for blue water cruising with extra corrosion resistance: type 316 stainless standing rigging, solar, wind generator, water maker, extra fuel tank installed for long passages, great safety gear and an extensive sailing wardrobe. She has a good quality dinghy that can be mounted on the custom dinghy davits and 2 outboards! The welcoming custom interior boasts 3 cabin and 3 heads. She is spacious and well ventilated so you can ensure that you be as comfortable at anchor as you are sailing.

Smart move is aptly named and has motivated sellers! This proven vessel could just be the right package for you!

Starting forward is the forward v-berth cabin. There are shelving units above the berth to outboard, an upholstered settee aft to port with a hanging locker aft of that. The forward cabin ensuite head unit is located starboard aft of the cabin. The sink, shower and vanity unit is most forward to outboard with the electric flush fresh water head unit aft. There is a mirror fronted medicine cabinet above the sink and cupboards below.

Next aft is the main salon. To starboard is the L shaped settee surrounding a large teak dining table. There is also an upholstered settee to centerline facing the dining table. There are storage units both above and below the settee to outboard.

The forward facing navigation station is aft of the L-shaped settee and uses the end of the settee for seating.

The galley is situated to port along the length of the main salon to outboard. There is corian counter space most forward for preparation, twin stainless steel sinks next aft, a three burner stove to center and aft of the stove are the refrigeration units. There are plenty of storage cupboards both above and below the countertops.

Next aft are the two guest cabins accessed either side of the companionway, both with ensuite head units. The guest cabins both have double berths with customized cabinetry to maximize storage, hanging lockers forward of the berth to outboard. The ensuite head units have a sink and vanity units.
