Beneteau 432 Port Canaveral Area

Hi all. Just in the final throes of purchasing the above boat currently on the hard at above location. Looking forward to spending quiet time with my wife sailing the Florida coast, keys, and Caribbean. Will be in the market for a new chart plotter as well as a few interior changes to make her ours.

Re: Beneteau 432 Port Canaveral Area

Thanks. I will be overhauling the ports and hatches to insure the plexiglas is clear and the seals are competent, and updating the electronics. Otherwise, the boat is in great shape.

Bad typo or autocorrect. The plexiglas is being replaced in all hatches and ports. I am also replacing the original Goiot hardware as needed. The plexiglas was crazed and cracked in several areas. The work is underway and it should give the boat a nice facelift as well as solve any leaks from these areas. A few minor plumbing and electrical issues and the boat will be ready for just about anything. I have a Raymarine system with radar ready to install as well. Will post pics when it is ready.

The keel bolts came up in the survey. A few were corroded. The previous owner cleaned them and sealed them. They look good now, but I know they will need to be replaced within the next few years. It's something I don't have to deal with now at least. I need to order them from Beneteau and shop around to have someone do it for me. I am sure I can get most of them out, but would rather find someone with experience for the ones which need the expertise. I have no intention of dropping the keel to do this.
