About this Beneteau Oceanis 323 Lift Keel


A rare opportunity to purchase a lift keel example of the fabulous Beneteau Oceanis 323, a yacht that offers so much, particularly the ability to dry out. This craft boasts a stunning inventory that includes bow thruster, Coppercoat antifouling, Eberspacher heating and electric anchor windlass.

The accommodation can comfortably sleep six and the aft cabin is particularly notable for its size. The vast heads/shower compartment offers practical features, such as a decent wet hanging area. The cockpit, with its rotating wheel pedestal, may be fully enclosed with the full height tent.

The boat has been with the current owners since 2014, they have maintained her to a high standard and have receipts for all the works carried out.

For further information, or to arrange a viewing appointment, please call, email or WhatsApp Peter Keats.

Owner's Comments

We purchased Bryher in 2014 and since then she has been based in Poole Harbour. We have sailed her extensively across the channel for extended cruises both around the Channel Islands and France down to La Rochelle.

Bryher has proved to be the perfect boat - not only for long distance ‘couple sailing’ but also for weekend trips with our family. The lifting keel has enabled us to visit many shallow waters and has proved ideal for Poole Harbour. Taking the ground at low tide has been a favourite with the grandchildren both here and across the Channel.

Bryher has been carefully maintained and her spec has been updated in order to provide us with the perfect ‘home from home’. Bryher is both very efficient and easy to handle. The addition of her bow thruster makes manoeuvring in close quarters simple. We are selling ‘Bryher’ due to an ongoing medical restriction.
