With the Oceanis 411, Beneteau has designed a great live aboard cruising monohull that is ideal for sailing the tropics. The cockpit is roomy, with place for up to 6 people. Manoeuvring the boat is simple. The sail plan strikes the right balance between control and performance and, at just over 12m, there is enough hull length to ensure a good sea passage.
Black Pearl has 3 double cabins, forward an owner’s cabin with private bathroom and 2 aft with a shared bathroom. The galley is in long format next to the saloon, with large table. The chart table is the classic format, with instruments and storage, a good work area. One can easily imagine living aboard, as a family or with friends, as there is space enough for some private areas. As a plus, the interior is light and well ventilated, the woodwork and upholstery in good condition and the technical areas easy to access and well maintained.
Black Pearl is a real find, with new batteries, new Hifi system, new bimini, new hot water tank and 250W of solar and a decent water storage capacity, she’s a lovely cruising boat ready to sail the islands. As a plus, she’s on sale at an attractive price.
