About this Beneteau Oceanis 393 Clipper


This Beneteau Oceanis 393 like all Beneteaus is a comfortable and spacious cruising yacht - though this particular model is one of the faster and nicer handling models in the range. This deep keel three cabin version is in good condition throughout with a good inventory.

See owner's comments for comprehensive maintenance history and work carried out to achieve MCA Cat 2 Coding. 

Early viewing is highly recommended.

General Model Information

Introduced in 2000, the Bénéteau Océanis 393 is a smaller version of the Oceanis 473, designed by Berret/Racopeau, who had previously drawn the Oceanis 361 and 381 for Beneteau. The model replaced the Oceanis 381 in Beneteau's range, and was generally regarded as giving significantly improved sailing performance, with a bigger rig and a higher ballast ratio than the earlier 381 model.

The hull of the Oceanis 393 is a solid moulding with woven rovings and CSM, with vinylester gelcoat and isopthalic resin. The deck is balsa sandwich with solid laminate or ply where fittings are attached. The "Clipper" designation is used by Beneteau to indicate a yacht supplied with a variety of extras over the basic model.

'Yachting Monthly' reviewed the design in 2001 and commented ".... she proved to be a quick yacht" and ".... she is much more controllable when pressed than her predecessors. he showed a reluctance to broach and her turn of speed will satisfy most cruising crew".
