46′ Beneteau 46

  • Year: 2008

Here’s the opportunity for an almost new boat. It was our in-stock boat that was just put in service in June of 2010. Low usage on Gen set & A/C units. The all new Beneteau 46 design is turning heads everywhere. Such a spacious, well crafted design inside and out. Shoal draft and maneuverable.
