Broker's Comments

Described by the manufacturers as 'an astonishing sailing boat - Seaworthy, fast, comfortable'. The Beneteau 211 and its follow up the 21.7 have stood the test of time. The combination of its performance, ease of handling and useful cabin space make it an ideal step up from dinghies as well as a superb trailer sailor for those looking to explore different areas.

This example is a 2002 model and has the benefit of a road trailer. The current owner had a new mast, new standard rigging and update of some of the running rigging in summer of 2020. At the same time furling gear was replaced and a new Jib made.

With the updates this boat represents tremendous value for money and subject to a good clean is good to go for the 2021 season.
