Beneteau Oceanis 411?

Hi everyone, I have some questions about the Oceanis 411. I have heard that the older Beneteaus were built much better than they are now. Is this true, if so, what is the quality like? What does the boat perform like? How does it handle rough weather? How much storage is there? What is there in the way of refrigeration? I have seen there's a huge fridge in the galley, but no freezer. Is it somewhere else or does it just not have one? If there isn't, would it be possible to add one? Thanks in advance for answering.

Not really, newer ones are also quite good.

Hard to answer, most Beneteaus are similar, its not a HR or Oyster, but the interior wears well and deck fittings etc are all standard makes .

Verfy subjective question, my experience is there are good in a seaway, a little lively like all fin keels etc

Storage is OK for weekending and the 2 week vacation sail, for serious cruising you will need tho mod the boat somewhat , but it depends on your requirements and sensitivity.

The 411 is shipped with a big ( !) refrigerator to my memory, it works " OK", no freezer to my knowledge ( I can't even remember any beneteau with a factory freezer)
