Libertad is a good example of the Beneteau production center cockpit models from the 2000 era. She was purchased by the current owner in Spain and sailed around the Med until crossing the Atlantic to the Caribbean and eventually to the US. Now with US duty paid, she is ready for more adventures.
With many cruising features like a furling cutter rig, solar panels, life raft and air conditioning, along with the great center cockpit layout, she is very cruising friendly. And just hauled with fresh bottom paint, you can not ask for much more.
Easy to show in Miami. Put her in your short list to come see.
A quick walk through as you come down the companionway, the dinette is to stbd and the galley and nav station are to port. Forward is the pullman guest cabin and a very large head/shower combo in the Vee.
Around to port is a walk through with the extended galley and copious storage and working space. Continuing aft, is the centerline queen aft berth with extra closets and cubbies. And then around some more is the huge aft head and walk-in shower. Way oversized for a 40' boat.
A Cruise Aire a/c system is under the dinette and ducted to both the forward and aft cabins.
The port side galley is extended from the salon to the aft cabin with loads of counter space and cabinets and storage on both sides. With the engine space behind and the counter space in front the galley is very comfortable and safe whether in port or underway.
The features include a ENO two burner propane stove/oven and a built-in fridge and freezer. A West Bend microwave was added.
Double stainless steel sinks make clean up a breeze.
The engine is a Volvo 50 hp with unknown hours powers a 3 blade fixed prop. Access is great under the companionway stairs or thru the aft cabin.
A Volvo/QL bow thurster is also included for maneuvering in those tight spaces with controls at the helm pedestal.
The boat has the original 220V European receptacles in the cabins but with 110V power adapters available for US appliances.
Battery charging is with shore power chargers, engine alternator and solar panels. There are 2 90W panels mounted above the davits and two flexible panels located on the coach roof at the base of the mast.
Electronics for navigation and communication are at the helm and the interior nav station. This particular Beneteau 40cc model had the helm on a pedestal in the center of the cockpit versus on the cockpit bulkhead as other versions.
At the pedestal there is a B&G Network suite with a Quad/Wind/Pilot displays.
At the nav station below, there is Cobra VHF radio, Furuno GP-7000F plotter, Furuno radar display, Navtex/Furuno weather display, and battery monitor.
Libertad is rigged with an in-mast Z-Spar furling mainsail with a furling genoa and furling staysail for a classic cutter style rigging.
Line controls are in the cockpit with the main furling lines run to a Lewmar 40ST on the coach roof, two Lewmar 48ST winches on the cockpit coaming for the jib and staysail sheets and the mainsheet run behind the helm seat to a Lewmar 40ST as well.
A mast mounter whisker pole is included.
The cockpit is protected by a full bimini attached to a hard dodger which provides additional security during weather.
Ground tackle is a large Delta anchor on an all chain rode. A secondary Fortress anchor is located on the aft deck.
Davits are mounted above the swim platform and also serve as mounts for the solar panels.
