This Beneteau is ready to make new memories!
Willow was purchased in Southern California and sailed up to the bay area by her current owners. Spending a few years sailing the San Francisco bay and the Sacramento delta. During the pandemic her owners decided to take her back down the coast and spent some months in Monterrey, then Morro Bay, Santa Barbara, and now Ventura. She spent the majority of 2021 and 2022 visiting the various Channel Islands. Proven to be a safe and sea worthy vessel. Her current owners are sad to be leaving her, but are moving to the east coast.
The Beneteau 461 was designed by the infamous Bruce Farr. Since designing his first keelboat, 'Titus Canby', in the early 1980's, Bruce Farr has been among the most accomplished and sought-after yacht designer in the world! Based on the 37 world championships won in his designs and a multitude of successful grand-prix boats, cruisers, and one-designs. Along with his partner, Russell Bowler, he’s been the dominant designer in the Whitbread and Volvo races since the early 90s, and he’s prolific in both the production boat building industry as well as in custom one-offs. Farr’s design firm, Farr Yacht Design, is located Annapolis, Md., USA.
