The concept and construction of the Oceanis 461 are directly linked to the Oceanis range experience. Owing much to her predecessors, whether in terms of her dimensions, the technology used or in aesthetic and practical choices, the Oceanis 461 fits perfectly into Beneteau's "cruising" range.

The Oceanis 461 hae a vocation for long-distance cruising, in the greateet comfort and safety. Her long hull, designed by Bruce Farr and Associates, has a great potential for impressive speed and gives you that quiet powerful sensation only felt on board true offshore cruisins yachts. The structure of the Oceanis 461 is based on the same principles that have made such a success of the whole range: the bonded and laminated inner moulding ensure the best possible spread of rigging and keel loads throughout the hull.

Her rigging is also classic and efficient: a masthead furling genoa (drum on deck) guarantees the necessary power for an easy passage across the seas of the world. The semi full battened mainsail is equipped with lazy jacks, facilitating both furling and sail reduction when necessary.


Her deck layout reflects the spirit of comfort and efficiency that has prevailed in the Oceanis 461 from her concept: teak-capped bulwark for elegance and safety, electric windlass half recessed into the anchor well thereby providing the best position for raising the anchor chain, large sunbathing area forward, uncluttered sidedecks with chainplates centred against the coachroof... and, of course, for those who appreciate its refinement - a teak deck option.

As for the vast cockpit, it is easily accessible via a door in the transom which is also equipped with deep lockers. The wheel steering position has a full console, to which a large cockpit table with hinged flaps and icebox is joined.


The Oceanis 461 is available in 4 accommodation layouts, depending on your preference and type of sailing, arranged around the immense saloon.

Whatever your choices, the warm atmosphere of the cherry-wood (teak as an option) welcomes you into the saloon cabins bathed with natural light (7 opening deck hatches and 12 opening portholes).

Beneteau Oceanis 461 Interior

Particular attention needs to be paid to autonomy in a sailing yacht that can accommodate up to 8 people for long-distance cruising, whether in terms of fuel capacity, fresh water or supplies... The Oceanis 461 is well designed for this: 200 liters fuel capacity, nearly 550 liters of fresh water (825l optional) a galley with numerous baskets and lockers for supplies, fridge/freezer in two compartments (up to three depending on layout selected) allowing you to spend many carefree days at sea.
