AL DENTE | Beneteau Oceanis 50 | 50ft


Mystic, CT, US


AL DENTE is a one-owner New England boat that has seen only seasonal use and been maintained to a very high standard. The boat is in truly excellent condition - one look below the cabin sole or at the engine and you will be impressed. AL DENTE has the Beneteau 50 two-stateroom layout with generous aft galley and inviting full-beam salon. Further, her woodwork/joinery is all polyurethaned cherry-stained mahogany and has been kept in close-to-new condition. Designed by Farr and built during what this broker considers the prime period for Beneteau, AL DENTE is one of those “sweet spot” boats that when you get aboard, she beckons you to make her yours.
