45' Beneteau 1998 On Holiday Again

Bruce Farr designed excellent sailor provides impressive speed, a fully battened mainsail equipped with lazy jacks and stack pack, facilitating easy furling and reefing when necessary.

On Holiday Again long hull, designed by Bruce Farr and Associates, has great potential for impressive speed while giving that quiet, powerful sensation only felt on board true offshore cruising yachts.

On Holiday Again rigging is classic and efficient. A masthead furling genoa (drum on deck) guarantees the necessary power for an easy passage. The semi-full battened mainsail is equipped with lazy jacks, facilitating both furling and sail reduction when necessary. 

The deck layout reflects the spirit of comfort and efficiency that has prevailed in the Oceanis 461 from her conception: electric windlass half recessed into the anchor well, large sunbathing area forward, uncluttered sidedecks with chainplates centered against the coachroof, and a teak deck option.

The cockpit 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.  There are 7 opening deck hatches and 12 opening portholes.

The galley has a fridge - freezer in two compartments, and large independent head compartments (up to three depending on the layout selected).

This is one of the very successful Beneteau 461 models. This 3 cabins 3 head version offers great comfort for all aboard. There is a large queen up forward in a lovely large cabin complete with ensuite head and shower. Aft, two spacious cabins offer great space and comfort. There is a separate head for these cabins. In the center, there is a large salon with dining table to seat 6 or 8 and a wonderful large galley with all the amenities. This is an easy boat to sail short handed.  She has had the same owner for many years and is very well maintained, this is a lot of boat for the money. Ready to go sailing, just provision and pick your destination. See the list of new items and updates later on.
