Kampeska is a clean, well equipped and lightly sailed example of the popular Beneteau 331, designed by Group Finot and built in Marion SC. This model was one of Beneteau's best sellers ever and it's easy to see why; the boat FEELS much bigger boat down below than 33' (at 33'11 she's actually closer to 34'). Kampeska offers a sophisticated hull with traditional lines, a spacious cockpit, top-of-the-line deck hardware and a roller furling main. A complete electronics package, a comfortable cockpit and all lines lead aft make sailing a joy. Note this is a deep-draft (preferable on the Bay), two stateroom model. Accommodations and Layout
The 331 has a HUGE interior for a 33 footer! Forward stateroom with v-berth with insert. Aft to main salon with settee berths to port and large semi-oval shaped settee and table to stbd. The table slides down to form a large double bed. The navigation table is at the aft end of the port settee. An opening hatch, opening ports and two fixed hull ports provide great viewing, light and ventilation in the salon. The seller has modified the table to pin up to the overhead and create more cabin room when it is not in use.
The second stateroom is aft starboard with a huge double bed as well as opening portholes, an overhead hatch and plenty of storage.

March 2000 Review of the Beneteau 331 from Sail Magazine
What can you do in 33 feet? A lot. In Beneteau’s latest mid-size cruiser, the Beneteau 331, designer Groupe Finot has made judicious, even clever, use of the boat’s 33-foot, 11-inch length and 11-foot, 2-inch beam.
Take the galley. It’s U-shaped for brace ability and security under way, the sink is near-centerline, nd the two-burner stove with oven has a stainless-steel crash bar for the cook to grab. The aft portion of the galley counter space is a sort of "heel-safe” zone; cordoned off by the companionway ladder and the outboard galley stowage area, items placed on the countertop have a good chance of staying contained when the boat heels or rolls more than the cook anticipated.
The aft double berth, saloon, and forward cabin are only slightly smaller than the jumbo-size accommodation spaces of Beneteau’s 361, and the head, with its 6-foot, 2-inch headroom, is laid out for use under way. The only compromise of the interior plan is the saloon-seat-sharing nav station and minimal-size nav table. The boat has a large (23 gallon) holding tank for extended cruises, but cruisers looking to add electronic goodies may want to increase the boat’s standard battery capacity (150 total amp-hours). For light and ventilation, the Beneteau 331 has five opening ports, four non-opening hull ports, and two Lewmar hatches.
The cockpit should handle three to four people under sail, and the port cockpit locker, deep and long, is designed to accommodate a liferaft as well as the usual assortment of fenders and the all-important collection of “stuff” that cruisers accumulate. Beneteau is offers at no additional cost a Cruising Package that includes Raytheon ST60 Tridata instruments, a Standard Horizon VHF, sternrail seats, stereo, shore-power cord, and hot-and-cold cockpit shower. All (well, almost all) the comforts of home.
