Bènèteau Oceanis Clipper 411


afloat Dorset


Bènèteau, France






41' 8"

Sail area

743 sq ft

Brief details


36' 1"



This is one of the less common Beneteau Oceanis 411 Clipper models with a four-cabin layout. There are two double aft cabins, a double forecabin, and a fourth forward cabin with two 'pullman' style single berths, which make good seaberths. With two heads this makes a good boat for a large family or a partnership arrangement, as is the case with the present owners, who have had the boat for 12 years. She has a good cruising inventory including heating, radar, liferaft and dinghy and outboard.

* Displacement figure above taken from the original Beneteau documentation for this boat. Other sources including Beneteau brochures sometimes quote about 5% less.


The Oceanis 411 had a longish production run, from 1997 to 2004, with many minor variations in trim and detail, as well as slight differences between models built for the EU and US markets. Designed by Group Finot as an upgrade from the previous Oceanis 400, with a very similar hull form, construction is of solid GRP for the hull, with a balsa-cored deck and coachroof moulding. The rudder stocks are epoxy composite rather than the more common stainless steel. Designations such as '411 Clipper' and '411 Celebration' refer to trim levels and detail of boats built at different times. Over 1,000 of these boats were built in total, quite a high number for a boat of this size.


The 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.

Two basic keel configurations were offered: a standard bulbed fin drawing 5' 7" and a shoal draft keel that draws only 4' 9". There were also some "Celebration" branded models that had a deeper 6' 6" keel and a slightly taller rig. This yacht is a "Clipper" version with the 5' 7" keel, a reasonable compromise between performance and draught.


The Oceanis 411 rapidly became popular, both with charter fleets and private owners. Charter operators like 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 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.

The engine is a 4-cylinder Nanni diesel based (like Betas) on Kubota blocks.
In the photo above a new 110 amp alternator is in the prcess of being fitted.

Kiwiprop Keel

Above and left: The keel has a large flattened bulb at the base to keep the CG low, and almost form a small wing. Some people thus describe these as wing keels. The designers Groupe Finot and Beneteau however simply call this a bulb.

The prop is a Kiwiprop feathering type, with composite blades.

The Yachtsnet photos were taken in March, days before the Covid "lockdown". Since then the hull has been polished, and some internal maintenance done. She was eventually relaunched in mid-June.
