Draft 1996 Beneteau 44

Hi, I am trying to buy a boat. The seller says the draft is 5.3 and I noticed online the draft of a 1996 Beneteau Oceanis 440 is 5.9, does anyone know of this same model being 5.3?

Hi. With the understanding that displacement (and therefore draft) varies depending on crew, sail inventory, provisions, equipment, etc., and that damaged keels can be replaced… Beneteau reports in a 1996 builder’s brochure that the Oceanis 440 has a draft of 5’9".
Hope this helps.
