The Beneteau 311. Cruising in Comfort

As you walk down the companionway, you enter the salon with its 6'1" headroom. To port is the galley with gimbaled stove and stainless steel sink with hot and cold pressurized water. Here, you'll find plenty of storage and enough working space to please any gourmet cook.

The navigation table to starboard allows ample room to view charts. Electronics can easily be seen from the bulkhead. Also, beneath the chart table is a refrigerator - easily reached from the galley.

The symmetrical salon consists of two settees flanking a large drop-leaf table, making it easy to move forward and aft. Extended cruisers will enjoy the numerous storage areas.

The Beneteau 311 has two cabins, one forward and one aft - making it perfect for smaller families or two sailing couples. The private forward cabin has a generous V-berth, a large hanging locker and lots of storage along the side of the hull.

The comfortable aft cabin also features plenty of room for sleeping and storage.

The spacious head has a marine toilet and wash basin, shower with pressurized hot and cold water, a hanging locker and additional storage.

Value and Volume.

Beneteau takes pride in providing their owners with long lasting value. And, with the Beneteau 311, you can be assured of a truly capable cruiser with the amenities of larger yachts: beauty, volume, performance and ease of handling.

The deck layout of the Beneteau 311 is simple and efficient. The large cockpit boasts slatted teak seats and is completely uncluttered. The space is increased by locating the mainsheet traveler on the coachroof. Genoa sheet winches are within easy reach of the helm. And a rigid boom vang enhances ease of handling.

For rigging, her large sail area is divided between the mainsail with long battens and the moderate overlap furling genoa. This winning combination is designed for more upwind performance and easier headsail handling. Nimble and fast through the tacks, sail handling becomes a breeze, thanks in part to her standard features such as lazy jacks and a quick reefing system.

Comfort on the water.

While she may be quick on the water, the Beneteau 311 was designed with comfort in mind. The pedestal console allows ample space to install your choice of electronics. While enjoying beautiful summer days under sail, you'll love the fold-away cockpit table.

And whether you're showing items for a day of snorkeling or long distance cruising adventure, you'll love the capacity of the large cockpit lockers.

The New Size of Luxury

Echoing the beauty and performance of her larger sisters, the Beneteau 311 is making waves around the world.

Designed by the renowned Groupe Finot, the Beneteau 311 beautifully combines the outstanding characteristics of a much larger yacht. Her fast hull is from the portfolio of one of the world's finest one-design naval architects. Yet, all that performance does nothing to downplay her comfortable cruising abilities. Below, you'll find plenty of ventilation, outstanding woodwork and fine details that truly make her a Beneteau.

Extremely strong and stiff hull

The powerful hull - based upon that of the Beneteau First Class Figaro - along with Beneteau's integral molded grid system is extremely strong and stiff. Her bulb keel, while providing minimum draft, offers the Beneteau 311 impressive speed and performance under sail. For even greater flexibility in shallow waters, the Beneteau 311 is available with an optional bulb rudder and retractable keel. Handling the retractable keel is very simple. Since the external ballast and keel assembly remains permanently under the hull, the weight of the retractable keel can be kept down to a low 660 pounds. A mechanical jack effortlessly raises and lowers the keel.
