General Gamble is rare offering of a Beneteau 44 Center Cockpit. The boat has 3 cabins and 2 heads. The hull and rig were designed by Farr, so the sailing characteristics are top notch. General Gamble was built in France, the current owners sailed her across the Atlantic in the early 2000's and she has been on the East Coast of the US since that time.

The center cockpit is spacious and safe, wide, clear side decks allow easy access to the bow and the extensive aft deck has a lot of storage and enough space to serve a multitude of functions. The walk-through transom with easy steps up make the boat very accessible from a dinghy or from the dock.

The interior layout is functional and the unusual 'chairs' on the starboard side are a luxury on a cruising boat. The galley has extensive storage as well as separate fridge and freezer. The aft cabin is spacious and has a large, private head with separate shower. The forepeak has a bunk cabin and V-berth as well as a head.
