Holding tanks capacities are estimated. The aft two holding tanks have been replaced and new deck pump outs added. The old deck pump outs have been epoxied closed. There are 4 deck pump-out locations so each ensuite head has its own holding.

There is also a head and basin with H/C water in the crew cabin. This head has holding in one of the forward ensuite holding tanks.

The four cabin model was intended for charter but it makes a great family boat where mom and dad plus the kids all have their own room. Bruce Farr designed this boat for Beneteau. Over 200 were built from 1994 thru 2004 or thereabouts.

Considered an off-shore build the Beneteau 50 came to America on it's own bottom from France. This boat has been lightly used and well maintained by her current owners.

CE-A (Off Shore rating), Hull Speed 9.03, PHRF Estimate 80

The interior of this Beneteau is the four cabin charter-type of design with a skippers cabin in the foc'sle. That cabin is used today as storage.

Owned by a family of four that lived aboard the last four years. Their work transfer places this beautiful boat on the market.

Entering from the cockpit via companionway stairs the aft cabins are behind you on both sides. The galley is starboard with a salon center Island full of storage space. Settee and table are to port. Ahead you see two cabins, one each side. Very spacious and super nicely kept.

It has a huge cockpit with seating for at least six with a nice flip-up table. Stepping down into the interior you'll see new upholstery, a new electrical panel at the nav station and a very clean boat with few blemishes.

The galley has redundant systems on the starboard side. the fridge can run off a pump connected to the engine or as a 12 volt system. Huge work spaces and storage abound. The center Island has lots of storage plus counter work space. The galley features a three burner propane stove with oven, trash receptacle, two basin sink, in-counter fridge that can be used as a one or two-sided fridge, or one side can freeze.
The settee and table are beautiful. The upholstery was redone this fall and looks very appropriate. The four berth cabins are in very nice shape with clean features and lots of hatch windows for light. Each cabin has ensuite head and shower.

There is also a crew cabin with two bunks, a head and basin located in the Foc'sle of the boat. This cabin makes a nice storage garage for crab pots, shop vac, etc. All that stuff you want to keep but not look at.
Cabin heat is supplied by an Espar Hydronic Diesel Furnace.
