Manufacturer Provided Description

On Holiday Again long hull, designed by Bruce Farr and Associates, has great potential for impressive speed while giving that quiet, powerful sensation only felt on board true offshore cruising yachts.

On Holiday Again rigging is classic and efficient. A masthead furling genoa (drum on deck) guarantees the necessary power for an easy passage. The full battened mainsail is equipped with lazy jacks, facilitating both furling and sail reduction when necessary. 

The deck layout reflects the spirit of comfort and efficiency that has prevailed in the Oceanis 461 from her conception: electric windlass half recessed into the anchor well, large sunbathing area forward, uncluttered sidedecks with chainplates centered against the coachroof, and a teak deck option.

The cockpit is easily accessible via a door in the transom which is also equipped with deep lockers. The wheel steering position has a full console, to which a large cockpit table with hinged flaps.  There are 7 opening deck hatches and 12 opening portholes.

The galley has a fridge in two compartments and 3 head compartments.
