Oceanis 350 Opinions

Like the title says, I'm looking for opinions on the Benne 350. The one I'm considering is an 88. Not considering her offshore sailing. At most island hopping in the Caribbean.

Re: Oceanis 350 Opinions

Two wheels or just one (1988, guessing it's one)? We bareboated one in the BVIs a few years ago. Quite nice sailor. Depends on what the layout down below is, but I recall that it required disassembling the entire aft cabin to simply check the oil dipstick - maybe could use cutting a door into the engine cover to make it doable.
