Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 311


For this 1998 example, the extra ‘Clipper’ kit included hot water, a cockpit shower, ‘semi-full’ battened main with lazyjacks and a stack-pack for stowing, wheel steering, two batteries and a battery charger, a fridge, a CD player, shore power and a set of crockery. Designed by Group Finot, she came with a bulbed fin keel or a shallowdraught, lifting keel and twin rudders. The hull is one of the sleeker in the Océanis range and performs well. Below decks, the layout is conventional with a double cabin forward and an aft cabin with a very large double bunk. The saloon has straight, parallel settees, an aft-facing chart table and an effective galley. She is lightly, but neatly fi nished and the basic structure is sound.
