Benetteau Oceanis 411 Celebration

Does anybody has an opinion about the 411 celebration. Better for Day-cruising or Atlantic-crossing, live-aboard? Just looked at one that is a 2004 in perfect shape for a reasonable price.

The general feeling, on several forums, is that the newer Beneteaus are better suited to coastal cruising than heavy offshore work. Lots of threads here regarding that.

Most boats are better suited to day cruising than Atlantic crossings. A properly equipped 411 should have no problem with crossing the Atlantic. As for living aboard, the 411 has lots of room. I am talking about the "owners" model. The charter model has a galley along the port side of the boat, not conducive to cooking at sea.

I think Beneteau in SC stopped making the 411 before 2004. The boat you're looking at might be French built. This model was replaced by the 423. I think Beneteau tarted up the last run of the 411's and called them Celebrations.

Thank you, it is the European model, as far as I know the celebration has a taller rigging to go a little faster. But besides that I heard nothing to worry about so far. I looked at a regular 411 which also has the 3 cabin layout, perfect for our two kids. Was almost 20 thousand cheaper, but also not as "clean" and a 2003. Just thinking......money.....speed......comfort.....
Well the irony is I don't even have quite the money for neither of them, but I don't want to travel thousands of kilometers to find the right boat too.
Are in Spain right now. Lots of Daycruisers......
Thanks
