2007 Beneteau Oceanis 523

Riverside, New Jersey

2007 Beneteau Oceanis 523 - Available now!

Beautiful boat! Amazing value!

Mer Soleil is a meticulously maintained, one-owner Beneteau Oceanis 523 which has the popular 3cabin/3 head layout. She has only been sailed in fresh water on the Northern Chesapeake Bay and has never been chartered.

This 523 represents an amazing value at $299 K compared to a similarly sized and equipped new Beneteau that would price well over $ 1 million.

She's ready for a fresh crew to get on board for new adventures.

There will always be a market for a big-volume, people-carrying cruiser with modest looks and just enough style to make it easy on the eye. One such 50-footer is the Beneteau Oceanis 523.

The 523’s appearance benefits from its low-slung coachroof. The cockpit is both functional and comfortable. Dual helm stations are separated from the cockpit by molded-in steering pods that allow the helmsman to have a comfortable seat, access to all controls, and excellent visibility on either tack. Meanwhile, crew in the cockpit can stretch out on 6-foot-long teak-trimmed seats or have lunch at the sturdy teak cockpit table with fold-down leaves. The split helms provide easy access to the walk-through transom and swim platform below. The cockpit also contains several large lockers that can easily swallow dock lines and fenders.


Going down the companionway steps brings you into a bright, airy saloon that would be a perfect place to spend a rainy afternoon at anchor. The interior layout is noteworthy for the intelligent use of the available space. The linear galley running along the starboard side of the saloon offers considerable counter and stowage space. The forward-facing nav station at the base of the companionway steps has a good-size chart table and a comfortable contoured seat. The dining table is offset to port and has room for six to eat comfortably. The long, curved seat that runs along the outboard edge of the settee will make an excellent berth (on the starboard tack); a bench seat set amidships has fiddled counter space and a bank of drawers built into the backrest. This obviously provides good stowage for cutlery and the like and makes a sturdy brace point for moving around in the saloon.

There's an impressive master cabin forward. It has an ensuite head and a 6-foot, 6-inch-long walk-around double berth with a high-density foam mattress. The cabin is furnished with two large hanging lockers, several cabinets with vented doors, a dressing table, a bench seat, and two drawers under the berth. The two guest cabins aft are smaller but are equipped with a hanging locker, and each also has an ensuite head.
