Beaching FP Bahia 46

Hi all, I am looking at buying a Bahia 46 & my one remaining question is can they be beached in suitable conditions?

Looking at the design I can see no reason it wouldn't be possible given the mini keels and height of rudders, but it would be nice to hear of real world experience.

Where I live we have many suitable beaches for this, and around 3m tidal movement so cat owners often beach to scrub and even do mid season anti fouls.

Ok, eventually found the answer, not surprisingly from kiwikat who has many informative posts on Bahias!

Great, can we see the picture as well? I live on a Bahia and would love to learn beaching it at some point.
