The Beneteau Oceanis 373 is a proven blue-water cruiser with excellent performance under sail and power (a PHRF of 135) and is a safe, comfortable, two stateroom boat with 6’7” headroom. It should be noted that a 373 won her class in a past Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC).
Cariad is in exceptional, turn-key condition and has in-mast furling, a bow thruster, davits, a life-raft, a generator and a host of other custom features. All running rigging is led back to the cockpit maximizing safety and convenience while underway.
Cariad has two large staterooms, a v-berth forward and a queen-sized bunk in the aft cabin. There is ample storage aboard. In the cockpit are three large lazarette/lockers and below, there is storage both beneath and behind the settees, two hanging lockers in the fore cabin, one in the aft cabin and additional custom storage in the saloon.
Cariad’s shower stall, with its electric toilet (selectable fresh or sea water) (installed 2015) is massive in comparison to other boats in her class. She has a L-shaped galley with a fridge, a chest freezer, twin sinks, a microwave and a two-burner stove and oven fueled by twin propane tanks in a cockpit locker. The well ventilated and airy saloon has a large, forward facing navigation desk and has custom built cupboards and bookcase. The cockpit has a walk-through transom, a fold-down teak table and a patented swiveling helm. There is a fresh water shower at the transom swim platform and a sea-water wash-down at the bow. Please see below for a more complete listing of Cariad’s equipment.
Manufacturers’ guides are available as are detailed commissioning and decommissioning checklists.
Cariad has had one owner from new who has meticulously maintained her. Most major undertakings were conducted by a local boatyard that is widely considered the most capable yard in the region.
