Introducing our fleet: "Sugar Daddy" - Beneteau Cyclades 43.4

Cyclades 43.4 is from Beneteau line, famous French manufacturer who struck with this line a strong imprint to charter boats concept. The boat is characterized by a well-organized space. Stepping aboard the Sugar Daddy (whether from the broad swim platform or from the opening in the lifelines amidships) one is immediately impressed by the boat’s volume. The cockpit is expansive and easy to move around thanks to the twin wheels and walk-around folding table. The cockpit is also uncluttered with no traveler to deal with and a main sheet mounted on the cabin top. This charter yacht based in our Trogir base, only 30km from Split city center, is a plump mid-size cruiser with a 2.9m length to beam ratio which allows for voluminous accommodations. The real charm of this comfortable sailing yacht for family holiday or holiday with friends is the very spacious cockpit which has a huge bimini. This awning hangs on the wires of the mast and doesn’t prevent communication with the deck during sailing or mooring. Mast wires reach up to side of the ship allowing unhindered, spacious and safe passage from the cockpit to the bow.

Cyclades 43.4 rig has 61? clearance which is a pretty tall rig for excellent sail power. The mainsail is large and combines with a small fractionally rigged headsail on this true sloop. Upwind with large main and small jib, Cyclades races 7 knots and exceeding 8 knots downwind. The cabin trunk quickly slopes up with room for the dinghy. Four stainless steel handrails decorate the cabin trunk along with two Lewmar hatches. The cockpit has long benches and a large companionway sill forward. Helms are comfortable and the benches ergonomic. The ergonomics are perfect, and this cockpit is really what the design is all about. You’ll definitely spend most of your time here and you’ll enjoy its spaciousness.
The interior is roomy and takes full advantage of the beam. Not only that, it has a wide stern which allows for two large cabins aft. Six identical portholes line each trunk cabin side, giving a lot of daylight in the saloon. The floor is a composite wood mixture while the upholstery is white faux leather fabric found also on Jeanneau boats. Its nice modern interior with warm teak veneers takes full advantage of the design. The saloon is dominated by a big U-shaped lounge in white leatherette with a further central bench seat which is on a pantograph mechanism for stowage. In kitchen there's a gimbaled two-burner gas hob with oven next to a big top-opening fridge. The laminated work surfaces feature a substantial fiddle rail that can be used as a grab rail. Storage space abounds and the cupboards are deep. Navigation table is the right place for the skipper and crew's devices to charge up.

Headroom measuring just over 2 meters is great all the way through. Beds are spacious at latoflex slats what is rare for charter yachts. The fourth cabin is smaller than the others. There are 2 single beds in this cabin. It may be small for adults, but enough for children (or it can be used as the skipper’s cabin).
Out of standard equipment included in price we’d like to highlight Wi-Fi Internet, Converter 220V/12V, solar panels, dinghy and a bow thruster.
