The FORTITUDE is a 2003 model BENETEAU Oceanis 331. In production from 1999 into 2004, she was built at the BENETEAU AMERICA Factory in Marion, SC. Designed by the well-regarded GROUPE FINOT for BENETEAU, her market success was further insured by the reviews that noted the exceptional interior room and sailing qualities of the Oceanis 331.
The FORTITUDE has a suite of RAYMARINE electronics that include a newer P70 autopilot, a RL70C Chartplotter / GPS as well as an i70 performance & navigation instrumentation. The FORTITUDE has a standard "Classic" rig configuration with a newer NEIL PRYDE inventory with a Mainsail "Stack Pack" Systerm (new, 2015), a 140% R/F Genoa (new 2016) and an Asymmetrical Spinnaker. Her enhanced inventory includes both a dodger & Bimini, a LEWMAR Electric / Manual anchor windlass, a LEWMAR folding wheel, a MAX-PROP feathering prop and additional Factory Options that all make for a very nice "performance cruising" package!
The FORTITUDE has been very well-maintained by her Owners and it shows! Given the innate excellent design features of the BENETEAU Oceanis 331, and combined with both her overall condition, equipage and aggressive price point for the FORTITUDE, it's clear that she represents a great value and so Inspections and offers are both encouraged.
