2000 Beneteau 361



New to market and very clean, ready to go.  Announcing S/V Liberte.  A well loved and professionally maintained 2000 Beneteau 361, an excellent value. This is one of Beneteau’s most versatile, roomy and comfortable cruising sailboats.

Abovedecks the first thing you’ll notice is the immaculate condition of the exterior of topsides and the hull.  Once aboard you will see she has beautiful sunshade and dodger with newer Strata glass. Comfortable closed cell foam cockpit cushions make the cockpit seating enjoyable.

Head through the companionway down a comfortable set of stairs into a large salon, plenty of headroom if for a 6’4″ person. Bright galley to port complete with stainless steel sink, large freezer and front opening refrigerator, microwave and gimballed range. All well ventilated and well lit.

To starboard aft you’ll see the very large queen/king berth.  Easy access and large enough to sit up and read a book with coffee.  Ventilation is provided by opposing opening ports. Exiting the aft stateroom you’ll pass the large head with a full and separate shower.

Moving forward in front of the galley to port is your navigation station.  All the controls here are at your fingertips. Open the ports on the hook, this salon is a delight and uncluttered as the table can be lowered creating a very comfortable double berth

Forward of the salon is another stateroom in the forward berth.  Easy access and quite large, it is ready for guests, owners or storage.  When you turn around you’ll see how ship shape everything is and how bright the teak & holly sole is.

What a way to spend a cruising season here in Mexico, she’ll bring you on your adventures in comfort and safety. Boat is fully supplied and ready for live aboard or coastal cruising.

The buyer had a change in plans and you’ll benefit from this thorough professionally maintained vessel.
