38' Beneteau Oceanis 381
Outstanding condition, offering the best of cruising and performance! This Beneteau 381 is that desirable combination of newer design and quality, excellent owner care since launch, and many extra accessories and features - all at a price well below the cost of a new boat. Limmershin was primarily a freshwater boat in her first seven years (Lake Washington moorage) and has had limited use (just 1280 engine hours) here in the Northwest with her second owners. Recent additions include a Wallas forced-air heater, smart charging system, dinghy davits, and upgraded electrical. She's fully-equipped and ready to take a new owner sailing anywhere, with comfort and speed.
HULL: Laminated G.R.P. hull with internal fiberglass grid, reinforced with uni-directional rovings
DECK: Balsa sandwich for stiffness, thermal and acoustic insulation. FRP headliner with cherry battens in salon & cabins.
The Beneteau Oceanis 381 was designed by listening to the needs of sailors and experienced yachtsmen around the world. In building this boat, Beneteau wanted a boat which perfectly materializes Beneteau’s philosophy on cruising – utilizing technically advanced research and production techniques in such a way as to result in a performance cruiser with a very spacious and comfortable interior. This objective was certainly achieved, as this boat has a voluminous 3-cabin interior, which is rarely available in boats of this size.
Sailing wise, the efficient hull shape, coupled with the efficient sailing rig consisting of a simple-to-use roller furling genoa and an efficient mainsail, ensure that she is a pleasure to helm. She moves with the lightest of breeze yet remains absolutely steady and comfortable in strong wind to satisfy the more adventurous, performance-oriented sailor.
Everything on deck, from the door in the transom to the stemhead fitting, has been studied in the greatest detail to make the Oceanis 381 a pleasing and efficient yacht: large cockpit under the shade of a big bimini with steering wheel console, table with flaps and enormous lockers, and sunbathing area.
Whether you want to cruise long distance or just spend your days enjoying our coast and bays, the Oceanis 381 truly offers you 38 feet of pure boating pleasure… and for a long time!
