The Beneteau Oceanis 331 is a modern family yacht with a particularly large aft cabin for her size, plus a good heads compartment. The designation "Oceanis 331 Clipper" refers to models sold with an upgraded inventory from standard
Launched in 2000, the Beneteau Oceanis 331 was designed by Groupe Finot to replace the previous Oceanis 321 model. The 331 design has two accommodation options with one large or two smaller aft cabins, and was built with a choice of deep or shallow bulbed fin keels or a lifting keel with twin rudders. The lifting keel is housed in a shallow stub wing keel, the intention being that to dry out the hull rests on the three points of keel stub and twin rudder tips.
The hull is a solid laminate with isopthalic resins in the outer layers, with a balsa sandwich deck and coachroof. The Oceanis 331 remained in production until around 2005, when the 323 and 343 took over as Beneteau's offerings in this size range.
SAIL Magazine said in 2000
What can you do in a 33 feet? A lot.
In Beneteau’s latest mid-size cruiser, the Beneteau 331, designer Groupe Finot has made judicious, even clever, use of the boat’s 33-foot, 11-inch length and 11-foot, 2-inch beam.
Take the galley. It’s U-shaped for brace ability and security under way, the sink is near-centerline and the two-burner stove with oven has a stainless-steel crash bar for the cook to grab. The aft portion of the galley counter space is a sort of “heel-safe” zone; cordoned off by the companionway ladder and the outboard galley stowage area, items placed on the countertop have a good chance of staying contained when the boat heels or rolls more than the cook anticipated.
The aft double berth, saloon and forward cabin are only slightly smaller than the jumbo-size accommodation spaces of Beneteau’s 361, and the head, with its 6-foot, 2-inch headroom, is laid out for use under way. The only compromise of the interior plan is the saloon-seat-sharing nav station and smaller-size nav table. The boat has a large-size (23 gallon) holding tank for extended cruises, but cruisers looking to add electronic goodies may want to increase the boat’s standard battery capacity (150 total amp-hours). For light and ventilation the Beneteau 331 has five opening ports, four non-opening hull ports, and two Lewmar hatches.
The first comment most sailors make about the Beneteau 331 is “I can’t believe this boat is only 33 feet long!” And once you step aboard this amazing mid-size passage maker, we believe you’ll agree.
Built for comfort and ease of handling, you’ll appreciate the wonderful performance capabilities and enormous interior volume – whether you’re taking her for a weekend cruise or racing in a Wednesday night regatta.
For anyone who is looking for the perfect cruising yacht for a couple or family, it’s worth a trip to see the Beneteau 331. Packed with features and standard equipment that are normally only found on much larger boats, the 331 is a welcome addition to the Beneteau line of cruising sailboats.
