1994 Beneteau 351

Burnham-on-Crouch, United Kingdom

£46,000

The Beneteau Oceanis 351 offers a great balance of luxurious accommodation combined with sea-kindly cruising performance. 'Kingfisher' is a desirable twin aft cabin version, offering comfortable sleeping accommodation for up to 8, a spacious saloon, and a large linear galley. Currently serving duty as a sailing school boat, she has been well maintained including new sails in 2023 and standing rigging in 2020, and her impressive inventory also includes an electric windlass, diesel heating, autopilot, and AIS radar. She is ready to enjoy and represents a rare opportunity to buy a well-equipped modern cruising yacht of this size and quality at a very reasonable price, only for sale due to a larger boat now being required.
