Boat Details


"Solent Clipper" is a 2002 Beneteau 36 CC lying in Nautec Mare, Monfalcone.  She is a UK Part 1 registered and British owned vessel.  The present owners bought her in 2006 in Portsmouth and cruised the Solent until 2009 whn they took her via the French rivers and canals to the Mediterranean.  She has spent successive winters ashore in southern France, Spain and Italy.

This is a very smart looking example and one of the last boats made.  It offers exceptional performance and a spacious interior, with all the traditional features of a Beneteau.  On deck, there is an easy-to-use sailplan while below there is a luxurious owners state-room aft and gourmet galley, perfect for the live-a-boards or extended cruising.  She is an extremely safe boat and behaves well in all conditions.

Returning to the main saloon and moving aft on the starboard side is the forward facing chart table with chart storage, sliding navigator seat, chart light and switch panel. immediately behind here is the large heads compartment. 

This can also be accessed from the owners aft cabin and is a GRP easy clean compartment. 

As well as the marine toilet there is a wash hand basin, shower and vanity unit. 

Continuing aft through the galley is the owners aft cabin. This huge area is like a proper bedroom and has full standing headroom. To create the space the bed is over to starboard which gives the space for the living and dressing area to port with curved settee, dressing table with mirror and hull mounted cupboard storage. 

The heads is accessed to starboard giving it an "En Suite" feel.
