PRICE REDUCED $20,000! This is an amazing deal so don't hesitate to take advantage of this opportunity!

Mavatar is a 3 cabin / 3 head version of the popular Beneteau 50.  Never chartered. The boat went through extensive refit in preparation for an around the world expedition, however a change of plans puts the boat on the market. The Bruce Farr designed hull makes for a very fast boat under sail and the comfortable interior would be perfect for a family looking to liveaboard.
