Pros:
Cons:

Oceanis 321 with almost all factory options. Equipped the boat for a solo trans-atlantic crossing in July 1996. Went through hurricane Bertha with no damage. Now based in the Med.Very satisfied with the boat ideal for single handed cruising. Have logged well over 10000 miles since delievry in May of 1995.

Pros:
Cons:

Design and features no surprise.
A very nice boat, I have equipped with all options and electronics.
Strength is quality parts and workmanship, except for weaknesses noted.
Weaknesses: Furling jib hw is cheap, the drum shattered in
a small storm. Engine exhaust lacks a needed riser, had to have the piston rod replaced in top chamber, Yanmar doesn't
cover this under warranty; Yanmar US and Japan has no concern for Customer support, regardless of Beneteau's requests.
I'm satisfied with this boat, would prefer bigger for more
offshore sailing, although there's only three of us and a dog (80 lb dalmation). I'd like to avoid Yanmar engines as I narrow my future selection (good luck, right?), otherwise my experiences with this boat are overall very positive.

The 321 is a very well equiped boat with top of the line gear. Iam very pleased with Her layout and handling in most conditions. The in-mast furling is most appealing. Engine access is limited, however, and some acrobatics is required to check the oil!The 28 Yanmar is quite reliable and overall she is a very nice coastal cruiser and a good value.

Pros:
Cons:

This is my first cruising class boat, so the honeymoon is not over yet! I have found the boat to be easy to single hand, very responsive under power or sail. Great accommodations for a 32 Ft. production cruiser. She sdails close to the wind and seems well behaved even in near 20 knot winds. Problems are minor and most are maintenance issues. Fuel gauge is useless. Raytheon ST80 Inst's are flaky at best. That said, I"m still tickled pink.
