Bruce Farr has again combined forces with Beneteau to bring us this new Oceanis 461. It is Euro-styled all the way, and if you like that type of boat, this is a good one. Personally, I’m not too Euro in my yacht tastes. Still, I like to study the beautiful way the Beneteau design team sculpts and tools its decks. The brochure gives the styling credit to Armel Briand.
With the weight of the Farr design office behind the shaping of the hull, we can be sure that this will be a good sailing boat. The D/L is 157. It’s a beamy boat, with plenty of beam carried to the transom. The ends are short but the counter is elevated enough to avoid dragging the transom around. I checked the sheerline with my straightedge and it’s not dead straight, but it’s very close. There might be a total of 3 inches of spring in the entire sheer. Flattish sheerlines go well with this general styling approach.
