2003 Beneteau 393 located in Maryland for sale

39' Beneteau 393


All my life since the 1970s I have always owned a sailboat (or two. Unfortunately, at my age, the time has come to sell Ming Ming, my family: kids, grandkids and dearest friends, pride and joy.
Ming Ming is a 2003 Beneteau 393 Hull # 080 that we bought at the end of 2002. This is a one owner sailboat that has never been chartered or raced. Because my family is not for extensive sailing she has been used only for short weekend cruise on the Chesapeake Bay always staying close to the marina. The furthest she went is to Cambridge once.
Since 2015 we have not been able to use the boat and she has been in dry storage. She is going back in the water in 2017.
Ming Ming is in great condition for its age. The low price of $98,000 does not reflect any problem. We just want to find a buyer that will take good care of her like we did.

The 393 is an ideal cruiser for a family or a couple & guests, the wide beam and high headroom giving the accommodation of a much larger boat. She is a very comfortable, stylish boat that can be sailed short-handed thanks to her mainsail and genoa roller furling with all lines leading to aft.
She has a desirable layout with 2 cabins: a king size aft cabin and a forward stateroom with hanging cabinet and l2 large drawers, 2 heads with hot shower (we never used it) giving privacy to all, beautiful cherry stained wood finish cabinets including a superb credenza on the starboard side of the salon (easy access and huge amount of storage). The salon is bright and airy with 3 hatches, 6 opening portlights and 3 fixed skylights, all giving a lot of ventilation.

Equipment: The list is too long but in a nutshell the highlights are:
Main sail in mast furling and Genoa roller furling.
Two house and one starting batteries.
Battery charger.
Navy blue Bimini and Dodger.
Porch seats on stern rail
Refrigerator with forward opening door, freezer / icebox, two burner stove and oven, microwave, 2 stainless steel sinks.
Auto pilot, chart plotter, compass
Stereo with cockpit & cabin speakers.
Electric windlass, chain locker, anchor and spare anchor
Fuel tank 35 Gal
Two water tanks 60 Gal each
Two holding tanks
Two 25lb propane tanks in vented locker
Hot water heater
Three cockpit lockers (2 aft and one huge sail locker on port)
Swim platform and ladder with hot and cold cockpit shower.
U-shaped settee with dining table (can be used as extra bedding using a set of lower aluminum legs).
Owner handbook

Upgraded Yanmar 54HP diesel with less than 500 hours. This engine can go a long way.
Through the years, the numerous coats of antifouling paint had inevitably built up. We took advantage of having her in dry storage to strip the hull old paint to bare bottom and start from scratch. New antifouling was applied. The bottom is like new, fresh and smooth.
No blister have been found (in winter, she always had been in dry storage).
2014 new NorthStar Mainsail. Not because it was old it had limited usage but it was hard to roll it out from the mast. We made the mistake of leaving it in the mast during the winter. The new sail is in storage had less than 10 days usage.
Compound and wax to the deck and sides have been done on a regular basis. This year the deck will be done.
