Rhode Island ,
This Beneteau 411, is a recent arrival in the North East, having sailed here from Florida last year and currently laid up in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
In 2022, all her bottom paint was soda blasted, removed and fresh epoxy barrier coat, followed by antifouling, was applied in preparation for the season.
Unfortunately, the owners needed to alter their boating plans this year and decided to place the boat on the market. Even though this 411 is competitively priced, reasonable offers will be considered.
These boats are designed for ease of use and are exceptional coastal passage-makers, with all control lines led aft into the protected cockpit. The headsail is roller reefing, while the main is traditional slab, unlike many similar boats which came with the additional complexity and convenience of in mast furling.
The deck stepped mast is surrounded, on the forward face, by a stainless steel pulpit to add a degree of reassurance when in the process of reefing or hoisting the mainsail.
The generous sized cockpit means that it will unlikely feel crowded and has a central table with fold down leaves, which offers great support when under sail and yet opens up to provide a comfortable outdoor dining area when at rest. The provision of new cockpit dodger and bimini, in 2021, will certainly encourage extended use of this area.
This particular 411 is the 3 cabin layout which comes with an ensuite head in the forward pullman style cabin with the double berth to st'brd and a low bench seat to port. The aft cabins are both double berths, with a common head/shower just forward of the cabins. The spacious interior, with ample storage, is ideally suited for cruising with a sizeable crowd, and has comfortable seating for at least 6 persons around the saloon table to st'brd. The interior's port side is entirely taken up by the galley which includes a top loading fridge, 2 burner gas hob/oven and a microwave.
Additional comforts include a Fischer Panda generator and air-conditioning units.
Recent, 2021 additions to the inventory include, Garmin 942XS Radar/Plotter, Standard Horizon DCS VHF & Antenna, handheld VHF, Viking valise life raft, halyards, dodger and bimini.
This Beneteau 411, is available for viewing and we look forward to scheduling your appointment.

Growing up in Malta, Alex was surrounded by the Mediterranean maritime industry. He built his first model boat at the age of 11 and hasn’t stopped playing with boats since. In no time, Alex learned to sail and had his offshore captain’s license by age 17 and his Ocean Master ticket by his mid 20's. Besides learning and developing skills as a seaman, he was also playing with engines and machinery of all types, including building and racing rally cars and old motorcycles.
With a college background in physics, applied and pure mathematics, he studied naval architecture, which culminated in being employed at Sergio Lupoli Yacht Design in Naples for 5 years, this included design and building schedules of small custom IRC racing sailboats. While this led to work on a wide variety of projects and boats, restlessness eventually led back to sea, initially as mate on an ocean-going tug, master on a research dive vessel, running a Swan for the Japanese delegation at a G7 summit, several transatlantic passages, as well as racing yachts in the Middle Sea Race and elsewhere in the Mediterranean.
More recently he was captain/engineer onboard a 30m classic motor yacht for 13 years, with an approximate 5000Nm yearly cruising schedule. Besides being responsible for the guests & crew, Alex scheduled and oversaw the extensive refit and maintenance programs required for an old classic yacht, with all the numerous little bits that go with keeping such a vessel afloat and running.
In addition to his native languages of Maltese, English, and Italian, Alex is conversant in Spanish, French, and Arabic. He and his wife sailed from Malta to the US in their 33-foot gaff cutter. They now reside in Portsmouth, and in their free time explore the US countryside on their dual sport motorcycles. He is a life member of the Royal Malta Yacht Club and past president of the Rhode Island Soaring Club, where he is a prominent participant in national model sailplane contests.
Alex is now on the team at Brewer Yacht Sales, and keen to utilize his decades of experience on behalf of clients, wishing to experience the fun and pleasure of yacht ownership.
