Broker’s Comments
"Harmony" is a popular example of the Oceanis range of Beneteau cruising sailboats. "Harmony" is a Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 311 with two-staterooms. She has a 4’ 8” draft keel. The Oceanis 311 carries a respectable PHRF-New England handicap of 177 seconds per mile. "Harmony" has an economical 18 HP Yanmar diesel engine with a fixed two-bladed propeller.

"Harmony" has a contemporary exterior and interior that has stood the test of time. She is a good looking boat. The 311 has earned a reputation for being an easy to handle and low maintenance coastal cruiser or club racer. The 311 is at the entry-level end of the Oceanis range. The Oceanis line of sailboats have been the backbone of Beneteau’s rise to become the bestselling sailboat manufacturer in the world.

"Harmony" has been well maintained by a knowledgeable owner. She is clean and shows minimal signs of wear and tear given her age. The interior woodwork and the interior cushions are attractive and are in good condition. She has not been in the charter trade. The engine only has 477 hours.

Forward, the V-berth cabin is large enough for two adults with a wood door to the salon for privacy. The aft cabin has a double berth for two adults. It too offers a wood door.

The salon has a fold-up dining table with seating on two sides. Both salon settees are long enough to sleep on. The salon has standing head room and storage. There is a small navigation table in the salon.

There is adequate space for two couples to go for extended coastal cruises. Using the settees, "Harmony" offers berths for as many as six friends and family.

The galley has a practical L-shaped layout. The galley has a refrigerator, stove, oven, and sink. The head is on the starboard side with a sink and a hand-held shower. "Harmony" has hot and cold pressure water.

"Harmony" has a versatile headsail inventory that is suitable for cruising or racing. The headsail inventory allows the crew to select the appropriate sail for light to heavy winds. The mainsail was new in 2018. She has a newer Harken headsail furler. "Harmony" has the standard classic mast. There are two primary and one secondary self-tailing winches. The cockpit has a steering wheel mounted on a pedestal. The stern has a highly desirable swim or boarding platform. The bimini is dark green. The bimini color matches the mainsail cover and the exterior color accents on the hull and topsides for a subtle but pleasing effect.

"Harmony" is a comfortable and easy to manage sailboat. It is suitable for single-handed or short-handed day sailing, weekending, cruising, or racing. She has spent her life on the Great Lakes in fresh water. She has been stored on the hard every winter. "Harmony" would be at home on the Great Lakes or coastal cruising on the East Coast, the Bahamas, the Gulf of Mexico, or the Caribbean.
