Beneteau Oceanis 411


This striking, Group Finot-designed yacht appeared in 1997. She was popular in America, where she was called the Bénéteau 411, and 420 boats were sold, an unusually large number for a yacht of this size. Two-, three- and four-cabin layouts were offered. All had two heads compartments and a U-shaped dinette. Cherry-stained mahogany or teak trim were offered. The two-cabin model, with a large owner’s suite forward, is a successful blue-water cruiser.
