Hull Construction at Beneteau's factory located in Marion, South Carolina
The following images are from another Oceanis 461 a few hull numbers earlier being built with the standard 62hp Westerbeke engine. This owner chose to have the minimum installed instead of the upgraded 75hp Yanmar option. Note the inner "Double Hull". This provides extreme rigid stringer and rib strength throughout the hull. Also, should any water enter the hull, every drop is routed via the ribs and stringers internally into a very small 6"x6"x6" bilge sump just forward of the keel. Each of the hull compartments created has a small drain hole into the stringers just in case water is dropped on the flooring above due to human or environmental conditions. This produces and ensures that the entire vessel and hull is always 100% dry! This vessel has never had or will ever have a foul hull odor, or lingering moisture problem.

(1) Paige II had it's "keel laid" in 2000, but its commissioning, outfitting, and technical redesign took place over the next 8 years to be of the absolute highest quality and state of the art. No compromise on quality was taken anywhere what so ever. Every possible future problem was designed out to the utmost possibility. The vessel is in perfect condition with only 370 engine hours. The vessel is completely ready for an owner that plans to put it into full, productive, worldwide sail away use. Included, is an assortment of should-have new spare parts. There has not been a new vessel shown the attention to detail during initial outfitting as this one. It will outshine, outperform, and be more reliable than any dealer supplied vessel, bar none, including an "equivalent" 473, 49, or smaller 46. It truly is one of a kind.

Much more in details and information is available to those on an actual serious search. An on-site walk-through will amaze even the seasoned sailor. The full attention to detail and quality is impossible to be appreciated or conveyed until the on-site visit is performed. If requested, upon receipt of a non-refundable deposit, a test sail will be provided. For any additional details, call 321-264-3243 or email zrdinfo @ The vessel is currently located in Titusville, Florida.

If you are looking for a first or basic boat, do not desire a blue water ready vessel with reliable systems, multiple back ups, and ease of use, or are simply looking for a former bare bones abused charter vessel that has in excess of 5,000 hours of use and broken or worn out equipment that typically sells for $125,000-$150,000 this will not be the correct vessel for you. A bottom up approach instead of a valuable realistic search will be a waste of time and effort. For a truly knowledgeable sailor that knows what is required, correctly and enjoyably outfitted, this is your dream vessel. It is available to be sailed away today.

Price, Price, Price.
