Re: Bene 473

Welcome to CF!

I don't know the answer, but surely somebody here does...

One sure way to find out is to call the Bene brokers and tell 'em you want one...

Celebration is built in the last year of manufacture. Normally a few extras chucked in.

Clipper is the tag for Oceanis. and I havent heard of Commodore.

Re: Bene 473

Commodore was a name for a "package boat" with some extras included in the price, higher quality fabrics inside etc.
I believe it was just retagged Celebration at the end of production period.

Dont think Commodore was at the end of the production run because theres one advertised from 2001... that was the begining of the production run.

May be I was not clear enough.
The Commodore was offered as "higher version" for most of the time of production.
Towards the end of production it disappeared, and Celebration was introduced. I believe it was just the same (or almost the same) package offer, renamed for last year of production.
