The "ABOUT TIME" is a 2004 model BENETEAU Oceanis 331. In production from 1999 into 2004, she was built at the Marion, SC Factory and delivered to her first .. and only .. Owners for the 2004 Season. Designed by the well-regarded GROUPE FINOT for BENETEAU, her market success was further insured by the reviews that noted the exceptional interior room and sailing qualities of the Oceanis 331.
The "ABOUT TIME" has been very well-maintained by her original Owners and it shows! Her suite of RAYTHEON electronics include a RAYMARINE 4000+ autopilot, C80 Chartplotter / GPS, radar as well as ST60 performance & navigation instrumentation. Her roller-furling mainsail & Bimini & ADLER-BARBOUR refrigeration all enhance the "ABOUT TIME" as a great cruising value.
Given the innate design features of the BENETEAU Oceanis 331, and combined with both the overall condition, equipage and aggressive price point for the "ABOUT TIME", it's clear that she represents a great value. Also note that the Winter Storage, systems winterization and boat covering fees have all been paid! Inspections and offers are both encouraged.
