Advertiser's comments

designed as a safe but exciting family cruiser the Oceanis 281 is perfect for a cruising couple or small family. "La Mouette" has been well cared for and is presented in very good order. She has 4 berths with a large aft double cabin and extendable V berth in the open plan saloon. She has a practical L shaped galley and can seat 6 round the central dining table. She is well equipped for lake or sea and should give her new owners many years of pleasure wherever she goes.
