On any yacht, the cockpit is the most important space aboard. It is where you spend the majority of your day whether it is sailing, relaxing, or enjoying a nice evening meal aboard. The Beneteau 461 design does a great job of providing a spacious and functional area especially with the yacht’s beam carried so far aft. The 8ft. long cockpit seating offers plenty of space for sailing, entertaining, or having dinner. A new Garmin chart plotter with new radar was installed at the helm in 2015.
