Re: Beneteau Cyclades 43.3 Across the Atlantic?

I bought an ex-Moorings (privately owned) Cyclades 43.3 in 2011 and spent three months sailing around Greece. It was definitely well looked after, apart from a single wiring repair. Its my first boat and I love its simplicity and ease of sailing, as well as the spacious interior and fitout. I would definitely make some mods for extended passages (pretty much the same as mentioned by earlier posters). We had some extreme wind (35-40kn) and choppy seas (2-3m waves) in the Southern Cyclades, but the boat handled really well and just ate it up. I am sailing it single handed and have found it very reliable and safe.
