+1, they are all floating death traps. And can't sail. And don't have any handholds.

Re: 2000 Beneteau 361 Thoughts? Looking to Buy

I just read that email that was posted by GEOPOWERS aka Vasco...
i do beg to differ with him.... we had a great sale down from SanFrancisco no problems with the vessel and enjoyed the sail experience...in the past we owned a Halberg-Ramsy and a MacGreger and a bunch of other power boats and can truthfully say the 361 is a pleasure...and yes it is inexpensive buts thats a plus ...

Given that MarkJ managed to circumnavigate his Bene and is still posting, he clearly must be the forums Kenny McCormick.....

+2 I died on mine! I didn't even leave the marina before she sprang leaks! I tried to bail out all the women but that still didnt lighten my load.

When I got to the Pearly Gates St Pete couldn't stop laughing: "You bought a Beneteau?"
If I wasn't dead I would have killed the jerk.
