1998 Beneteau 461 Sailboat For Sale in San Diego

This Beneteau Oceanis 461 sailboat is a solid performer,  strong, safe and efficient. She is well maintained and updated and shows like a much newer boat.

"Liberty" is her name. She is loaded with all the convenience and amenities of a modern cruising sailboat with beautiful craftmanship joinery of cherry wood down below. She has two spacious cabins and 2 heads and a large galley. Also included is a generator, A.C., custom Garhauer davits for a dinghy and more. The in mast main sail furling system and large Genoa also on roller furling makes it easy and safe to sail. 

The current owner has spent more than $20,000.00 in improvement on this vessel in the last 3 years. The previous owner spent $12,000.00 on a custom 1 inch stainless steel framed Iverson dodger and enclosure which remains in excellent condition. In addition, he spent $4,500.00 on a custom made Tempurpedic mattress for the owner cabin. You will sleep well on "Liberty"! The upholstery down below is excellent with no wear showing.

"Liberty" has just been detailed and waxed. The teak toe rails and cabin top hand rails have just been refinished. She shines like a new penny and is ready to go and be enjoyed.

A 50 foot slip at the Loew's resort on Coronado Cays in San Diego  may be available to assume subject to the approval of the Marina manager.
