BVI Yacht Sales Overview

1997 46′ Beneteau Oceanis 461 ‘Mi Amore

Introducing Mi Amore, one of the world-renowned Beneteau Oceanis 461 yachts.
Located in Santa Marta, she is perfectly located to sail to the Panama canal (approx. 400 miles) and Aruba (approx. 300miles).

These yachts remain incredibly popular as a family cruiser, with Cruising World awarding the Beneteau Oceanis 461 with the prestigious Best Value award in the Full-Size Cruiser category. Its easy to understand why this vessel won: she points very well into the wind, she really flies on a close or beam reach, and her sailing ability in no way compromises her comfort or safety. While it may have been her sharp lines and comforting interior that caught your eye first, its her exceptional sailing performance that rightfully confirms her place in the Beneteau family.

The forepeak master cabin with en suite head features a large double bed, with the opening hatch allowing for stargazing while making sleeping very cool and comfortable.
The cosy saloon has upgraded the upholstery to marine grade, light tan weave which really ensures that Megerin stands out from the crowd.

The L shaped galley is well equipped with a 2 bowl deep sink, and upgraded countertop with a beautiful Corian solid surface material.

The aft cabin is extremely spacious, and to ensure your guests have privacy there is access to the day head from the cabin!

The Perkins engine has remained impeccably well-presented and has never let the seller’s down, and the easily accessible engine has had the oil and all filters changed every 100 hours to ensure she stays in peak condition. The canvas is in a classic navy blue, including Bimini top, dodger, stack pack, and wheel cover.

Mi Amore has been well-cared for and is ready to set sail as soon as you are! If youre looking for a family-cruiser style vessel with impressive speed, that has both a spacious interior and a beautiful, traditional exterior, then look no further than the Beneteau Oceanis 461, a vessel where strength and reliability have been built into every aspect.
