2008 Beneteau America 46

Cape Coral FL, US




SHONTO is an example of a modern Beneteau 46 Oceanis which in many ways is better than new!  New sails including an in-mast furling, vertical batten main and 140% Genoa provide all the power needed to cruise at 7-8 knots consistently. Her 75 hp Yanmar provides power to motor at the same speeds. The dual helm and large cockpit provide great visibility and control with plenty of room for guests. The two cabin two head (each with separate shower) model provides below deck comfort for two couples or a family. SHONTO is ready to cruise with all new pumps, AC units, generator, and excellent Raymarine E120 based electronics (autopilot, radar, etc) fully networked for access on mobile devices. The wireless operated bow thruster and anchor windlass make operation in a marina or anchorage trouble free. Come see this exceptional Beneteau 46-you won’t be disappointed!
