Perfect Blue Water cruising escape


Mary Colleen is a yacht that is perfect for blue water cruising, with many Beneteau options and extras that make spending long periods of time away from a marina comfortable. 

A giant stateroom aft provide provides apartment like space – you’ll never feel couped up spending months aboard this boat. Likewise, the spacious saloon offering a wide lounge, large dining area and a generous separated galley that is well ventilated. A deep freeze has been added in what was originally a crew cabin, for keeping stores and extending your time away. There is a dishwasher, washing machine, generator powered air-con, ice maker, water maker, gas stove with oven and lots of power options to ensure all the comforts of home are always with you. 

Sails are easy to operate by one or two people. The tender can be easily launched and restored and a redesigned Bimini and cockpit cover can be filled in on all sides with clears making the weather protection so effective that the original owners claim to have travelled 50,000 Nm without ever once needing their wet weather gear. 

Mary Colleen is a luxurious boat ready for very comfortable and fast cruising. Large enough for extended cruising but manageable enough for a couple.
