Beneteau 361 Overview

The Beneteau 361 features a revolution in design both above and belowdecks. Entering the salon you will be impressed by the space afforded in this size cruiser featuring a U-shaped galley equipped with a huge refrigerator/freezer, two-burner LP stove/oven, ample dry storage and counter space along with a double stainless steel sink and faucet.  A forward facing navigation station is just forward of the galley on port.  Accomodations include a large v-berth forward with overhead hatch and hanging locker.  A large aft cabin to starboard offers a double berth with great storage and two opening ports.  The large marine head is located to starboard just forward of the aft cabin and features a separate shower stall.

On deck the 361 has a spacious and comfortable cockpit with all sail controls led aft.  From the helm station you can easily trim the sails.  The engine controls feature a single lever and are well placed while the electronics are at your fingertips. The walk-through transom and swim platform are perfect for swimming, a quick rinse and provide easy access from a floating dock or dinghy.  The large bimini and dodger provides ample shade for you and your familiy or guests
