The Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 311 was designed by Groupe Finot, they have created a fast family cruiser with a luxurious modern interior. Kind of Blue is a great example of this model having been well looked after by both sets of owners. Her current owners purchased the yacht in January 2006 and this Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 311 has since been cruised from North Wales to Turkey. She is safe and easy to handle and has been well maintained with antifouling and shaft bearings replaced in March 2014. Before the voyage to Turkey, Kind of Blue was upgraded with saftey equipment with the addition of a 6 man life raft, a McMurdo EPERB, Danbuoy, deck mounted jack stays and a life ring with light. The original anchor chain has been replaced with 50 metres of 10mm chain and additional warp for safely anchoring overnight without being concerned about drifting. The Webastow cabin heating was also installed plus waste water holding tank and electric powered fog horn both essential for sailing through the French canals. This Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 311 has been equipped to accommodate 6 people, her spacious accommodation is designed with a two cabin layout. Lifting winged keel and twin rudders allow for shallow anchoring in bays and harbours often denied to most keel yachts. Volvo diesel with shaft drive to two blade bronze prop complete this lightly used ready to go Oceanis Clipper.
- This model of the 331 with a lifting keel is well able to move through shallow waters with a draft of only 1 metre when the keel is lifted also in tidal waters she is well able to sit on the sea bed or river bed when the tide goes out, a facility we used frequently when sailing down the bay of Biscay stopping off at many islands sailing well up the estuaries and resting or sheltering and able to clean the bottom as the tide receded.
Kind of Blue is a treasured possession she has been well looked after, serviced and maintained constantly by us. She has never let us down and we sail her regularly up and down the Turkish coast and to the Greek islands of Rhodes, Kos, Kalimnos, Leros (our favourite) Patmos and many others. We have sailed her twice to Cyprus, once to the North side and once to the South side. She is a very stable and safe cruising yacht perfect for the family and can easily be sailed single handed as all 4 winches are within easy reach and all lines come back to the cockpit. The large fresh water capacity of over 400ltrs and 4 gas bottles plus microwave and large battery capacity means you can be totally independent at anchor or at sea for several days at a time. -
