Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 500
Opua, Bay of Islands
“With the Oceanis 500, never has the worry of trying to simplify life on board been pushed so far to the back of your mind. This sailing boat is a boat that lives as you like to live, that resembles you and which brings you together. The Oceanis 500 is designed to make your enjoyment of sailing last for a long time.”
This Oceanis 500 has had an awesome reconfiguration of what was a 4 cabin layout into a 3 cabin, featuring a huge master suite with a walkaround queen bed in the bow. She also features a spacious saloon and kitchen & 3 bathrooms. All this along with two double quarter berths means there is room for the whole family to enjoy.
The cockpit is just as spacious and comfortable as the interior, with great squabs and twin helm stations with moulded seats. Clears connect the dodger & bimini and roll down at the sides to create full enclosure of the cockpit if desired.
Some of her features and upgrades include:
- Diform standing rigging.
- Fresh Antifoul
- AGM and Lithium batteries
- SSB and VHF Radio
- Solar Panels
- New battery monitor
- New electronics 2018
- New Oven
There is one electric and one manual toilet, with 3 holding tanks. Equipped with a diesel heater, this boat will be cosy through summer and winter.
There is also a 2.7m Aquapro tender, with a new 5hp outboard.
Set up for coastal cruising with a furling jib and stack pack mainsail, this boat also has the potential to be kitted for offshore sailing.
The current owners have done a lot of general tidying and upgrading of systems, including new electronics in 2018 and new solar panels and battery monitor. The windlass have also been serviced in 2019. This boat is in great condition for its age, and is ready for her next adventure.
