In addition to three generously sized double cabins and three heads, the Beneteau 473 has above average headroom especially in the salon making the Beneteau 473 a great choice for sailors above average height.
The main salon is perfect for entertaining and dining. Excellent storage in the galley makes provisioning for the crew easy and of course includes refrigeration, stove top coffee percolator and kettle. It can accommodate head and sous chefs at the same time!
Although very well ventilated there are electric fans in each area.
There are twin helms which allow excellent visibility and ease of handling in a roomy cockpit suitable for all the crew to experience the exhilaration of a perfect sail. Of course you can all just chill or dine there under the bimini for a little shade from the Caribbean sun.
The fully battened main sail equipped with lazy jacks and stack pack with a roller furling jib are ergonomically designed for performance as she cuts through the water.
Please note we have more than one Beneteau 473 in our fleet so the boat in the pictures may not be the boat that you are on.

Thank you Conch Charters! We loved the Benetau 473. Loads of space, everything worked perfectly, and a very comfortable forward cabin that we loved! This boat sails beautifully. As always, the Conch staff is the best in the Caribbean. Special thanks to Ross, Ben, Ian, Megs, Laura, and Mandi, for getting us booked, checked out and back in, and for making sailing such a pleasure.Gerry and Martha, St. John Saturday, 28th May 2016
Just got back from a ten day cruise on 'La Bonne Vie'. The boat performed well, no glitches at all. Nice and roomy especially with only two people on board. Great to have 'Hal', the auto pilot! The first weeks of October are quiet in the BVI but that is exactly what we sought. This was my 7th charter with conch over the last 20 years and I've never been disappointed. The same goes for the many people we have referred. Montreal QCPaul van Wijlen Wednesday, 15th October 2014
The Conch staff is very relaxed in their approach to their guests. There is no pressure or rush during the entire experience. Periodic phone checks assure that all is well and that needs are met. Thank you so much for your attention and attitude.Keith Sunday, 17th August 2014
We just completed our first sail with Conch Charters and it was fantastic. The Beneteau 47 handled like a dream - this is a great boat! Plenty of room for 6 people enjoying 9 days together. No problems with anything. We have already reserved for next year. Thank you Conch. Bill Webster and crew of 5, ConnecticutBill Webster Saturday, 2nd August 2014
Even though we had high winds and waves the first few days, the boat performed fine. We all had a great time and will charter again soon.Captain Schaumburg Monday, 29th April 2013
This was our first time chartering with Conch Charters and we were very pleased. The Beneteau 47 was a perfect size for 6 adults and was well equipped. The condition of the vessel was good considering it is in use continuously. All 6 of us are experienced sailors and racers and the boat handled well. With the exception of a rather small and slow bbq for 6 people and a less than solid mooring hook "la Bonne Vie" was a delight and helped to make our 25th wedding anniversary extra special! A special thanks to Andrew and Irene. Really, really helpful and professional.Many, many thanks! Dave and Pam Plumbdavid plumb Wednesday, 3rd April 2013
It is such a pleasure doing business with Conch Charters. Arrived on January 12th, 2013 and the boat was clean and beyond comfortable. With 3 couples on board there was still ample space for privacy. Had a small problem with the Windlass our first day out but within a half hour capable people from Conch arrived at our boat and very promptly fixed the problem. This trip was planned well in advance and many questions were sent to Conch to verify our float plan. All questions were met with prompt answers and very much appreciated! My husband and I will be booking with Conch again in the near future. Courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and honest. Can't ask for a better Bareboat Charterer!!!!!Nancy Dunlay Tuesday, 19th February 2013
