This Beneteau 461 is an owner's version, 2 large cabin, layout.  The main saloon presents with a large U-shaped galley starboard for ease of meal prep underway. Dinette seating wraps around a large table, expandable with a removable leaf, and convertible to a double berth.  Portside is a long settee (with lee cloth) and a Nav station.  The forward cabin holds a queen size inline berth, an abundance of storage, and private head with shower.  The large aft cabin has ample storage and private access to a head with shower.  Full, easy engine access is accomplished by three large openings: under companionway steps, in aft cabin, and in the galley.
