Annito – Beneteau Oceanis 461
"Enjoy the west coast in this comfortable, sociable, go anywhere yacht – great for a family get-together or cruising with a group of friends”
New mainsail for 2014 season.
Note: We are often able to offer two of these yachts, allowing the option to charter two large and comfortable matched sailing yachts, ideal for larger and/or corporate charter parties on the West Coast of Scotland.
The Oceanis 461 is perfect for long distance and coastal cruising, in style and comfort. Her Bruce Farr designed hull has great speed potential and gives a sense of power and security. With electric windlass, powerful engine, furling headsail and main, and all sail controls led back to the cockpit, she is as easily handled by a smaller crew as she is comfortable with a larger one.
Charter coded for up to 10, she has four large double cabins arranged around a comfortable and spacious saloon, where the dining area easily converts to allow another 2 good sized berths.
Adding to her flexibility, the two forward double sleeping cabins are each readily convertible into twin single or double plus single berth configuration.
Her large linear galley is equipped with a double fridge-freezer, twin sinks and gimballed cooker.
Warm air heating is provided by Eberspacher hydronic unit, with hot and cold water at the galley and in the two heads/shower compartments.
Though generally Largs-based, this yacht will also be available for charter out of Oban/Crinan, through much of the 2015 season.
Recent charterer feedback:
"We had a very nice week on the Annito.There were no problems at all, neither with Sailaway nor with the boat." Gerhard Ehgartner and friends from Austria, enjoyed an 8 day cruise on "Annito" in July 2014.
A very seaworthy boat - Annito sailed well and was very comfortable below deck.... a great yacht, which I would be happy to charter again. Richard Newhouse and family chartered "Annito" in June 2014
Mike was great, went out of his way to come down the next morning for handover as BA delayed our flight by a couple of hours on Thursday, he did a very comprehensive handover. And he was there at short notice to help with the refuelling. Ian Stewart chartered "Annito" in May 2014
