Yachtsnet's archive of boat details and pictures
 

The following information and photographs are displayed as a service to anyone researching yacht types. HOWEVER THE PHOTOGRAPHS AND TEXT ARE COVERED BY COPYRIGHT, AND MAY NOT BE REPRODUCED WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF YACHTSNET LTD.

No reliance should be placed on other yachts of the same class being identical.  Where common variations exist, we have endeavoured to indicate this in these archive details. 

Bènèteau Oceanis 411

Brief details

Builder

Bènèteau, France

Designed by Groupe Finot as a sucessor to the earlier Oceanis 400, the Beneteau Oceanis 411 has a flat sheer, a relatively low profile coachroof, and narrow bow sections with a small amount of flare in the forward sections, increasing aft. The stern sections are full with a lot of buoyancy well aft. Overall this is a fast hull, but she has been given a bigger spade rudder than would be usual for a racing boat, to aid directional stability and control.

Keel type

* The standard keel was 1.7 metres - ie 5' 7".
There were shallow fin versions built with 4' 9" draught and also some,
including the "Celebtratuion@ branded boats, with 2.0 metre ( 6' 6" ) draught.

 

** Beneteau brochures quote 7,500 Kgs - ie 17,195 lbs as the 'light displacement' figure:
the designer Groupe Finot, and one boat's original paperwork give 8,300 Kgs
or 18,740 lbs. It is possible that the shallower keel versions have higher
ballast figures in order to compensate for the reduced leverage.

Bènèteau Oceanis 411

Designed by Groupe Finot as a sucessor to the earlier Oceanis 400, the Beneteau Oceanis 411 has a flat sheer, a relatively low profile coachroof, and narrow bow sections with a small amount of flare in the forward sections, increasing aft. The stern sections are full with a lot of buoyancy well aft. Overall this is a fast hull, but she has been given a bigger spade rudder than would be usual for a racing boat, to aid directional stability and control.

Three keel configurations were offered: a deep bulbed fin with 6' 6" draught, a standard keel drawing 5' 7" and a shoal draft keel that draws only 4' 9", the shallower keels with more pronounced bulbs to compensate for the lesser depth. There were also some built with a 6' 0" fin keel. Construction is of solid GRP for the hull, with a balsa-cored deck and coachroof moulding. The rudder stocks are carbon-epoxy. Designations such as 'Clipper' and 'Celebration' refer to trim levels and equipment detail of boats built at different times. The Oceanis 411 had a longish production run, from 1997 to 2004. The replacement model on 2004 was the Oceanis 423.

 

The Oceanis 411 was sold with four different cabin layout options, with 2 3 or 4 sleeping cabins.

The Oceanis 411 rapidly became popular, both with charter fleets and private owners. Charter operators liked these boats because they are easily handled, and stand up well to the wear and tear of intensive use. For the private owner they offer a large and moderately fast boat with a very nicely finished interior, and they are big enough to make long passages - there are usually several of these each year doing the ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers) passage to the Caribbean.
