We are reluctantly selling our much loved Beneteau 473 as our annual pilgrimage to the Med from Australia has been interrupted for 3 years and it looks like there are a few more years of travel problems due to Covid-19. TAG is located in Greece. It has always been privately owned and never been a charter yacht.
We are the third owners of this yacht and have owned her since 2013. She has been fastidiously maintained by her owners prior to us and we have continued to maintain her pedantically.
Our plan was to sail her back to Australia and with that in mind we have been fastidious in her maintenance. For example, the rudder stock bearings have just been replaced, steering quadrant checked, stern gland and shaft bearing replaced. The hull has been re gel coated, keel bolts checked and nothing left to chance. We replaced the standing rigging in 2017.
She is ready to sail the Med or circumnavigate the globe.
TAG has been pulled out of the water each year since she was launched and stored on land for winter, all skin fittings serviced, hull polished and maintenance done.
There is nothing to do, she is in sail away condition and due to the physical distance between her and us, she is being sold with everything on board. Just take on board your personal items, stock the fridges, buy food and you can be away.
