Manufacturer Provided Description

Based on the highly successful Beneteau 473 and designed by renowned naval architects Berret / Racoupeau Yacht Design, the Beneteau 393 is a unique 39-foot passagemaker that answers the long awaited quest for a serious bluewater cruiser. Roomier, more spacious, and boasting some of the best accommodations to be found, the 393 will be sure to please the most scrupulous of sailors.


The 393 represents Beneteau's answer to sailors looking for a serious offshore sailing yacht capable of long distance passage making yet comfortably equipped with modern amenities and styling. Her hull design has an appealing 5' 1" draft yet maintains excellent stability at sea. The three cabin, two head configuration provides spacious and comfortable accommodations for up to eight.

She would be the perfect choice for a cruising couple looking to explore the shallow waters of the Bahama's and Caribbean but open to the option of cruising distant horizons. Grand Cru is the finest Beneteau 393 available today and is sure to impress the discerning sailor looking for a modern, affordable, and exceptionally well equipped cruiser.

Walk Thru

The living space has been maximized and makes smart use of every inch of the over 13 ft beam. A spacious three cabin, two head floorplan provides accommodations for up to eight between three double berths and a convertible dinette in the main salon.

The high level of workmanship is readily apparent throughout the fit and finish of the Beneteau 393. Beautiful cherry hardwood trim and joinery is finished with satin varnish and contrasts nicely with the light tones of the upholstery and headlining. The interior has a modern and bright feel thanks to the oversized hatches, generous portlights, and three superb acrylic skylights overhead the main salon. Custom sun shades and screens keep the living space comfortable, but when the summer sun becomes overbearing two CruiseAir 12,000 BTU air conditioning units deliver cool air throughout the climate controlled cabins and main salon.

Main Salon

The main salon is accessed through the sliding acrylic main hatch and companionway stairs which are contoured for safety allowing for safe passage when healed over. The focal point of the main salon is the U-shaped settee to port with shelving outboard that seats eight comfortably around the large hardwood table which can quickly convert to a double berth. Storage is provided with corner lockers and underneath the centerline settee.

Hull & Deck

While of French design and owing to her popularity in the United States, the Beneteau 393 was the first to be produced at Beneteau's South Carolina plant. Her hull is solid fiberglass with a structural inner grid and fiberglass floor, the result is a stiff boat that is responsive and confident offshore. The deck is a balsa cored fiberglass sandwich construction with non-skid surface. The T-shaped cockpit with walkthrough transom seat is a nice feature and allows for easy access about the cockpit and integrated swim platform.

Her cockpit with teak seats and floor is well protected with a large dodger and bimini with wrap around enclosure and sun shades. All lines are led neatly aft to the cockpit to the well situated spinlock clutches on either side and Lewmar winches. The helm with leather wrapped wheel and sailpod is equipped with cruising electronics and instrumentation, VHF with AIS, Clarion stereo remote, and a Plastimo compass. A folding cockpit table with storage inside is perfect for outdoor entertaining.

Stanchions are solidly backed and keep the crew secure within the double lifelines and sturdy transom railing. Boarding gates are to either side and at the transom. Wide side decks and full length jacklines make going forward while underway much safer.
