The Beneteau 373 offers more light and brightness plus extra headroom for commodious space below. Her comfortable cockpit has a patented innovative pivoting steering wheel making it easy to walk from the helm to the companionway. Available in a two or three cabin layout, the 373 is a classic sailing yacht with eye-catching appeal.
Entering down the companionway steps into the main salon, you first notice the amazing amount of natural light. A critical design element of the 373 model is the portlight arrangement in the main salon. Numerous side ports and especially, the overhead skylights, provide an amazing amount of natural light below, even on gloomy days.
Immediately to port, there is a well-designed, L-shaped galley. Across to starboard is the spacious head, with toilet forward, sink next aft and huge stall shower with teak seat and generous ports for more great lighting.
The U-shaped dinette is forward of the galley, offering a comfortable settee and drop table that easily converts to a double berth. Plenty of storage under the settee and seat backs allows you to stow your gear and provisions out of sight. To starboard is a comfortable long settee with storage above and below. Just aft of the starboard settee is the nav station.
Forward of the main salon is the private guest stateroom with a V-berth. Two sizeable lockers provide plenty of extra storage space. The master stateroom is located all the way aft and is close to the head. The queen-sized berth is arranged athwartships to provide the most leg-room possible. Locker storage is just inside the entry and provides ample space for your gear.
The engine compartment lies below the companionway steps and is easily accessible through the lifting stairs, supported by gas struts. There is also easy side access through doors in the head and aft stateroom. The shaft and tankage is accessed under the aft cabin berth.
All sail control lines are led aft for ease of operation. The classic mainsail and genoa make sail setting and reefing a quick, easy job.
