Harmony has the desired 2 staterooms/ 2 head layout. She is upholstered in rich green fabric, finished in satin cherry and has 6'5" headroom. All of the floorboards are removable for instant access and there is 25,000 BTU's of heat and air for year round comfort. Ventilation is superb, with 7 hatches and 12 opening ports, with screens for all of them and shades for all of the hatches.
Starting forward is the owner's stateroom; there is a spacious 7' x 54" centerline berth, cherry battened hull sides and white overhead liner. There are settees port and starboard of the berth with storage under each seat. Storage is available under the berth, in two drawers under the aft portion of the berth and in two lockers with cane fronted doors over either settee. A hanging locker with shelf above is located just inside the cabin door on port. Fiddled shelves are outboard the berth on both port and starboard sides. There are two fixed port lights in the hull, two overhead hatches and one opening port. There are two reading lights and two overhead lights. The integral fiberglass water tank is under the berth.
The Forward head is finished in easily maintained, white molded fiberglass and includes an electric toilet with fold down seat, shower with sump pump, molded sink with storage below and mirrored medicine cabinet above. An opening port and hatch provide good ventilation.
Continuing aft, the main salon is huge, with seating for 8-10 adults and comfortable dining for 6-8. A large U-shaped settee with an inboard upholstered bench is to starboard and surrounds a lovely oval varnished salon table with removable center leaf. The settee converts to a double berth. There are louvered lockers on each side of the outboard bookshelf and an additional bookshelf with two shelves forward of the settee. Opposite the U-shaped settee is a straight settee, with a bookshelf outboard and two louvered lockers above it. A storage cabinet and end table are forward of the settee. Two fixed ports in the hull above both settees give good visual access to the water beyond. Ventilation is excellent with four opening ports and two hatches.
The port settee serves as the aft-facing nav station seat. The chart table is top opening with instruments mounted in a console above and additional storage under the table. Outboard of the chart table are the electrical panels.
Continuing on port, the aft head is accessed from the main salon or the aft stateroom and includes a manual toilet, shower and molded sink with storage below, mirrored medicine cabinet and oval dressing mirror forward. There is one opening port with a shade and a dorade vent for ventilation.
Aft of the companionway to port is the guest stateroom. The berth is 6'9" long and 70" wide, making it quite comfortable for two. Storage is available in a cabinet and large hanging locker to starboard and there is a large shelf/table top to port. A long fiddled shelf is outboard the berth on the port side. There are overhead and reading lights, two opening ports and a hatch for ventilation and lighting. The fuel tank and two 4D batteries are located under the berth.
The galley is aft to starboard. The counters are solid surface white and provide ample working surface for meal preparation. A large storage locker is forward under the counter, a Force Ten three burner stove aft of that and double stainless steel sink next aft along the outboard counter. An Adler Barbour refrigerator/freezer with top opening freezer and front opening refrigerator is along the aft counter with microwave mounted above. Storage is available in three cabinets with caned doors outboard the counter, another cabinet outboard of the microwave and a double doored cabinet under the sink. The trash can, which is under the forward counter can also be accessed through an opening in the forward portion of the counter. There are two opening ports and an opening hatch for ventilation with an additional fixed port in the hull side.
The engine room is under the companionway steps which are raised with the help of pneumatic lifting arms. Additional access is from the galley and aft stateroom.

Deck and Harware
The deck is a balsa sandwich for stiffness and thermal and acoustic insulation. Structural bulkheads are bonded 360 degrees to hull and deck for structural stiffness.

The deck layout of the Beneteau 461 is well thought out. All lines are led aft to sheet stoppers and winches on the cabin top. The main halyard winch is electric and all the halyards can be led to this winch if extra power is needed. Pulpit and pushpit are stainless steel and there is a double stainless steel bow roller. Forward is a large, enclosed chain locker with ample space for chain and rode. The electric windlass is located in the locker. For work at the mast, there is the protection and convenience of granny bars. Well placed handrails on the cabin top offer safe hand holds for going forward. The cockpit is great for entertaining and there is a dodger and bimini offering protection from the sun and rain. The transom seat lifts up for an open pass through to the swim step with its fold down swim ladder. There is a draining storage locker in the step, two large lazarettes in the cockpit and propane storage in the port aft locker.
