Beneteau Oceanis 361

Built from 1998 to 2003, the Oceanis 361 and Clipper 361 was the model which replaced the very successful and long-running Oceanis 351 model. Designed by Jean Berret and Olivier Racoupeau, the aim was to produce a boat which could serve both the charter and family cruiser market.

The Oceanis 361 was built with a choice of two or three sleeping cabin layouts, and with shallow winged fin or deeper bulbed fin keel options. There was also a less common and more expensive twin-ruddered centreboard version. The standard engine was either a Yanmar 3GM30 or Volvo 2030, driving through a moulded shaft log
