Beneteau Oceanis 45
Like all our yachts, Malabar is privately owned and benefits from the owners desire to create a lovely yacht but with something extra.
Malabar enjoys some very special extras, including the 7″ Zeus chart-plotters at each helm position in addition the centrally mounted 12″ cockpit chart-plotter. Each is a chart-plotter in its own right, not just a repeater. Whatever information you want at the helm, including autopilot, can be set easily. All instrumentation is by B&G, probably the best available these days.
Sail handling is by furling genoa and fully battened mainsail to provide optimum performance. Ease of control is aided with a fully battened main and roller cars with an electric halyard winch, making sail handling easy, even if you have no gorillas in your crew.
Malabar also enjoys electric remote control of the very successful Beneteau Oceanis 45 drop down transom which has become so popular in recent years. Many of the unseen systems, such as Gel batteries and hi-tech charging systems add to the superior experience of chartering Malabar, a very special Oceanis 45
