Decks and Equipment
The side decks are narrow for a boat this size, a compromise driven by the need to enhance the living space below. The foredeck has a large opening anchor locker; it must be opened to step on the windlass switch and this is truly astute from the point of view of safety. The dual anchor roller is fabricated in stainless and is rugged and led fair. The deck opening through which the chain must run is rectangular with 90-degree corners on the boat; preferable and less likely to hang up ground tackle is an oval or rounded hawse pipe in this location. A dual-tank propane locker is recessed into the side deck with a fume drain overboard. The topsides are protected by a stainless steel rub rail, an important cruising feature surprisingly omitted on many boats. A more serious feature often omitted on boats today is a planned proper location to mount a survival raft; happily, aboard this vessel, there are sturdy attachment points designed to secure a life raft on the coach roof.
The deck is joined to the hull with mechanical fastenings every six inches and 3M 5200 adhesive/sealant. The hull is fabricated of hand-laid solid fiberglass with an isophthalic gel coat to impair osmosis.
A molded fiberglass grid is bonded to the hull to provide structural integrity, which includes reinforcing the hull itself and accepting torsional, compressive and tensile loads associated with the rigging and use. The deck is of sandwich construction, cored with end-grain balsa. The standard keel is cast-iron with a winged bulb and it is bolted to the hull; an aluminum mast is stepped on the top of the keel.
Spacious Salon and Cabin
Entering the saloon from the cockpit, the companionway steps are curved up on each side for improved footing on a heel. The interior saloon area is light and cheerful. A U-shaped settee and expandable table fill the starboard side. On the port side are a nav station and hanging locker. Aft in the passageway, to port of the engine area, is the galley -- comfortable, well thought out, with quick access to the cockpit and the saloon. A three-burner stove with oven is located forward to channel cooking heat and odor up and out the companionway.
Hanging lockers have ceiling liners at least to the waterline for protection against mildew and condensation. The forward stateroom has a double berth to starboard. To port are a locker and settee; a prospective owner might investigate reconfiguring the space for better storage. The bed of course has good capacity beneath in drawers. The head forward includes a shower.
Engine Space and Access
The engine space provides terrific access to the 60-horsepower Yanmar diesel, particularly around the after end where you have to go to reach the stuffing box and transmission. There is a hatch built into a galley cabinet for side access. The companionway stair swings open on hydraulic lifts to give you the forward end. The builder indicates that the space aft of the engine will house a generator; this is attractive in terms of an energy consumption scenario, but the installation of a power unit in this location could limit access to the engine and stuffing box appreciably.
Aft Cabin and Head
The aft stateroom includes a very low berth along the bottom of the hull, wide and easily accessed from both sides. There is a small hanging locker, a small vanity with mirror and some storage. Two side opening ports, one transom opening port, one port opening into the coaming and two Dorade vents all provide plenty of light and air. The aft head is forward of this stateroom on the starboard side of the engine space. The head includes a shower in the toilet section.
1999 Beneteau 400
We are pleased to present this well kept Beneteau 400 for your consideration. Upon boarding her for the first time, I was impressed by the spacious cockpit and the aft deck. There is a good line management system making it possible to sail her solo and the life raft is positioned perfectly on the mid deck with easy access in case of emergency.
Downstairs, the boat is well thought out with a spacious salon and navigation station area. A "railroad style galley on the port side leads down to a very spacious and comfortable aft cabin with lots of natural light. There is a marine head and shower ensuite!. The fore cabin has a queen size bed and settee as well as a hanging closet and in the boa is the second head.
The dining area is quite large and can easily seat six to eight people and is close to the galley for ease of service!
Like any boat of this age, there are things that could be changed, improved or updated, but overall, she is a very sweet bluewater boat. She is fully equipped and ready to go with minimal maintenance. She would make a great liveaboard yet is quite capable if you wish to circumnavigate the globe!
