As a two owner, freshwater boat, “Grenouille Bateau” offers a unique blend of performance sailing, with a modern cruising interior and only 6’3” draft. Get there quickly, in comfort and with style. The optional 28 HP engine allows her to stand out from her sister ships when under power.
Beneteau sailboats are known for their bright and inviting interiors with varnished teak bulkheads, white overhead, light ceilings, and a teak and holly cabin sole. “Grenouille Bateau” offers modern living in a performance package. (Cabin cushions have been re-upholstered and the forward and aft headliners replaced)
The forward cabin has a double vee berth w/filler cushion, 6’ shelves port and starboard, hanging locker, storage drawers, cabinets, screened deck hatch, mirror, dome light and port & starboard reading lights. There is privacy door to the salon.
The salon’s port and starboard settees make comfortable single berths with storage behind and shelving & cabinets outboard. The double drop leaf table has wine storage built in. Good light and ventilation are provided by long windows, solar vents, screened deck hatch, and the companionway. The interior grab rails on the overhead and bulkheads make movement below decks safe and secure in a seaway.
The L-shaped galley to port has storage galore, double stainless steel sinks near center line with pressure water and sea water foot pump. Insulated ice box that has been converted to Isotherm 12 DC/110 AC refrigeration (2 years old), tilt out trash container, Formica counter tops w/fiddles, a gimbaled, Electrolux two burner propane stove with oven. An opening port with screen near the stove provides good ventilation while cooking
The forward facing Nav station is to starboard. There is storage in the large chart desk and shelving and cabinets close at hand.
The head is to port with a Jabsco manual head & holding tank (overboard discharge has been capped), pressure water, molded sink & counter top, mirror, handheld shower fixture, teak shower grate, and independent PAR shower sump pump, cabinets, dome light, and deck hatch w/screen. (Door sill has become soft with age)
The Starboard aft cabin has a comfortable 7’ double berth and dressing seat. The outboard side of the berth has a long shelf with fiddle rail. There is additional storage space in a hanging locker, drawers and cabinets. The 6’3” headroom and louvered privacy door would deem this to be the master. Opening port w/screen, and overhead lights make it all feel light and airy.
Trick her out as your family club racer or just do some fast cruising. The aft cabin will become your special space while the forward cabin, settee, dinette and pilot berth can accommodate friends, kids or a racing crew.
