The following information and photographs are displayed as a service to anyone researching yacht types. HOWEVER THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE COVERED BY COPYRIGHT, AND MAY NOT BE REPRODUCED WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF YACHTSNET LTD. Details and photographs are normally based on one specific yacht, but could be a compilation.

Bènèteau Oceanis 411

Brief details


Bènèteau, France

The Oceanis 411 had a longish production run, from 1997 to 2004, with many minor variations in trim and detail, as well as differences between models built for the EU and US markets. Designed by Group Finot, construction is of solid GRP for the hull, with a balsa-cored deck and coachroof moulding. Designations such as 'Clipper' and 'Celebration' refer to trim levels and detail of boats built at different times.

Keel type

Iron bulbed fin keel with wing, and spade rudder

Bènèteau Oceanis 411

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. The rudder stocks are carbon-epoxy.

Two keel configurations were offered: a deep bulbed fin drawing 5' 7" and a shoal draft keel that draws only 4' 9", the shallow keel being heavier with a more pronounced bulb to compensate for the lesser depth.

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.
