Spacious and well designed for family cruising! This is a one owner freshwater boat that has only been sailed in the cool fresh waters of the Great Lakes. A very comfy cockpit with seating for 6-8 adults and a cavernous interior make this a fine choice for the weekender crowd or the extended cruising couple. Always stored in an indoor heated facility in winter. Owner is moving and sadly can’t take her with.

Additional Comments

The concept and construction of the Oceanis 461 is directly linked to the Oceanis range experience. Owing much to her predecessors, whether in terms of her dimensions, the technology used, or aesthetic and practical choices, the Oceanis 461 fits perfectly into Beneteau’s cruising range. Her long hull, designed by Bruce Farr and Associates, has great potential for impressive speed while giving that quiet, powerful sensation only felt on board true offshore cruising yachts. The structure of the Oceanis 461 is based on the same principles that have made such a success of the whole range; the bonded and laminated inner molding ensure the best possible spread of rigging and keel loads throughout the hull. Her rigging is also classic and efficient. A masthead furling genoa (drum on deck) guarantees the necessary power for an easy passage. The semi-full battened mainsail is equipped with lazy jacks, facilitating both furling and sail reduction when necessary. The deck layout reflects the spirit of comfort and efficiency that has prevailed in the Oceanis 461 from her conception: teak-capped bulwark for elegance and safety, electric windlass half recessed into the anchor well, large sunbathing area forward, uncluttered sidedecks with chainplates centered against the coachroof, and a teak deck option. The cockpit is easily accessible via a door in the transom which is also equipped with deep lockers. The wheel steering position has a full console, to which a large cockpit table with hinged flaps and icebox is joined. There are 7 opening deck hatches and 12 opening portholes. The galley has numerous baskets and lockers, a fridge – freezer in two compartments, and large independent head compartments (up to three depending on the layout selected).
