This is the three stateroom, two head version with the galley running along the port side of the salon. There's an owner's suite forward with its own head in the V-Peak. There's two identical staterooms aft separated bt the engine compartment. A full nav station is to starboard and a full head to port. The dining area seats up to six with its removable centerline bench seat in place. Please see the last photo for a layout diagram. Better yet, take the video tour.  


New Raymarine Electronics Package at the helm includes:

HybridTouch 9" multifunction display

HD Color Radar on gimbaled backstay mount 



TriData - Speed/Depth/Log

Plastimo Compass

Stereo Controller at the helm

Sirius Antenna - Unsure if for radio, weather or both 


Original Electronics at Nav Station Include:

Standard VHF

Furuno b & w radar with a transmitter on the mast (works well)

Water pumps





Galley equipment includes:

Large top-opening Refrigerator

2-burner propane stove with oven

2-basin stainless sink

This is the Euro-style galley that runs the length of the salon providing more counter space and better access to the dining table. You get a large, bright, well-vented galley without sacrificing seating around the table because the 411's salon is wide enough to accommodate a removable centerline bench seat that allows for dining of up to six at the table.  The chef also has excellent views out of the boat while preparing meals.    

Sails, Rigging and Canvas

In-Mast Furling Mainsail - Original mainsail, with upgraded Sunbrella protectant on the clew. 

New Genoa currently being built by Fries Sail Design to 

New Headstay

New Schaeffer System 3100 Furler

Navy custom canvas package by Sharp Canvas (Chester, CT) includes:

Dodger with removable side extensions

Bimini  with window to view mainsail

Connector with clear panels to provide protection while allowing visibility

While the canvas appears to be in good condition, the clear panels are getting cloudy. They work, but I think a new owner may want to replace them. 

Overall, the canvas package design is really good, one of the better I've seen and I see a lot. New clear panels recommended. 

Navy Sunbrella-type material cockpit cushions - in good condition (no rips or blown-out seams) but they need cleaning. You could easily clean yourself or bring to a canvas shop.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The Good:

Recently Awlgripped Flag Blue Hull shines and sparkles

New Raymarine Electronics Package including HD Coor Radar, Autopilot and Wind


Brand New Genoa

Desirable 3-Cabin Layout, perfect for a family of 4, giving kids their own bed.

The bright, airy Euro-galley really works well on this model with more meal prep space and excellent outside views for chef without sacrificing seating around the table. It also serves as a great workbench for projects around the boat.

Brilliant Canvas package design, but (see below)...


The Bad:

The clear panels in the canvas package are cloudy and could use replacing.

The interior cushions are in good structural condition (no tears, or worn areas) but they need a good cleaning.

The cockpit cushions are in good condition but they need a good cleaning.


The Ugly:

Strong odors in the forward head - could simply need a pump-out or perhaps head hose replacement. If it was my new boat, I'd start fresh with a new toilet and hoses, and give the tank a very good cleaning.

There is a lot of marine growth, (beard), on the bow thruster. This needs cleaning before operating the thruster. The owner will get this done before a survey.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Beneteau 411, designed by the renowned Groupe Finot, exemplifies a true marriage of performance and beauty. With the bulb / fin keel, maximum stability and efficiency on all points of sail are achieved by her low center of gravity. The standard in-mast furling main and roller furling genoa provide efficiency and true ease of handling. The large cockpit with teak inlay seats is designed for maximum comfort and the pedestal console allows ample space to install electronics. There is also a dual-leaf cockpit table containing a large molded storage area and plenty of space to stow gear in the large cockpit lockers. The extra-wide aft swim platform and ladder, walk-through transom, and standard cockpit shower makes swimming easy and convenient. Both the two- and three-cabin layouts have roomy companionways, large cabins, and plenty of storage throughout, all accented with richly detailed cabinetry. Specially designed for serious cruising, the 411 nav station has a large chart table with additional locker storage underneath, as well as ample space for installing electronics. The deluxe forward owner's stateroom features a generous double berth and an upholstered port settee that is perfect for reading or relaxing. There is also private access to the spacious forward head with sink and shower unit. The galley is beautifully appointed with pressure laminate countertops, double stainless sinks, and loads of storage. The two-burner propane stove with oven will accommodate every culinary need.
