Blue Juice Sailing Yacht for Sale - Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 361 from 2001
We are selling Blue Juice, our beloved full time cruising home for 4 years and heart of our YouTube channel "see the little things”. This boat has taken us from Greece in 2019 across the Med to Spain, Gibraltar, Canary Islands, Cape Verde Islands, to the Windward Caribbean, with no accidents nor damage.
We turned her from a coastal cruiser into a serious offshore capable off grid boat. Our goal was to live off grid for extended periods of time and the list of upgrades is plenty. The bilge is dry.
The boat is currently located in Martinique and we plan to hand her over here. She is ready to go.

All lines, jammers, and winches are accessible from the cockpit, making this boat easy to sail single handed and very easy to sail with crew. It has a battened loose footed mainsail and furling Genoa. The boat comes with a second set of used sails (Mainsail and Genoa) that we mainly carried as backup for the Atlantic crossing.
In 2020, we replaced and installed a full width Bimini that covers the complete cockpit and creates a roomy feel and protected living space on anchor. The spray hood has been serviced and maintained regularly with repairs and reinforcements added in 2019 and new vinyl windows in 2020.
In 2021 we installed a stainless solar arch, carrying a 400W LG bifacial panel, a 90W Lorentz mono panel, a Raymarine RD218 radar and the AIS antenna.

- New 70mm2 wiring, bus bars, fuses, and battery switch added to accommodate for higher loads and improved battery setup in 2021
We overhauled the electric system before we crossed the Atlantic. We added bus bars and changed critical backbone wiring to new 70mm2 marine wire. Also we added a new mega fuse along with the new 2000W inverter and installed a new battery main switch on the domestic batteries.
We installed an automatic relay switch to the shore power wire to bring inverter power straight into the boat's 220V system without manual effort. All of the boat's 220V sockets are usable when on inverter power. Next to that we installed an additional always-on socket at the inverter.
Wires were professionally crimped and cut to size by Rolnautic in Gran Canaria.
Next to the domestic AGM batteries, the boat comes with the Ecoflow Delta Powerstation. This is a 100Ah lithium battery with 2 charging inputs: up to 1000W AC fast charge input and DC charge input, plenty USB outlets, a 12V car socket, and a 2000W integrated inverter providing power to 6 international 220V AC sockets. This compact power station charges up through our domestic bank and provides lithium power to cook on induction and use the electric kettle. This way we don't stress our domestic AGM bank but use high loads only through the Lithium power station. It acts as a "power cache" providing pure sine 220V up to 2000W, while being slowly and gently recharged by excess solar power.

We strongly suggest for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear. The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but safety equipment is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel. It is not to be used to negotiate price.
Fuel: Single tank 76 ltrs (20 gals)
Water: 2x tanks total of 320 ltrs
Holding: Single tank 50 ltrs
Lots of spare canisters stored in locker and lazarette, listed under "Deck"
Accommodation and Liveaboard Comfort
Standing height is approximately 1,93m throughout.
From factory, the Beneteau Oceanis 361 Clipper accommodates for 6/8 in 3 double cabins and saloon seating that converts to a double. After conversions for full time cruising, one cabin has been transformed to storage and equipment. Blue Juice currently accommodates 2 grown ups and 1 kid, full time. During our Atlantic Crossing, Blue Juice accommodated 3 grown ups and 1 baby.
Other than the American built 361s, the European Build has a folding saloon table allowing for either plenty of dinner guests, or walking space, or sleeping accommodation, depending on current need. The benches offer lots of storage below seating.
We put in a new mattress and memory foam topper in the forward cabin in 2020. New memory foam topper in aft cabin in 2021.
We added shelves to all closets and added boxes to increase storage. No more wasting space with hanging closets.
Lots of minor improvements have been made to increase comfort and safety for a young family when cruising with a baby. To buckle up the baby when sailing gets tough we added an isofix attachment to the forward bulkhead to clip in a baby car seat.
We turned the back cabin into a safe and cushy baby room by adding ambient lighting and a big lee cloth.
The bathroom is one of the best features of this boat. Bigger than most bathrooms - even on bigger boats - this layout separates heads, sink, and shower. The shower has plenty of cupboard space and offers a bench to sit on. When cruising full time and/or with a baby, this big wet room is immensely valuable. Showering or bathing the little one (or yourself) is easy and comfortable.
The Jabsco toilet and its hoses are regularly treated, have never clogged and don't smell. The shower drain hose feeds directly into the drain pump, so there is no smelly shower sump/bilge.
We added lots of IKEA TISKEN storage solutions to maximise utility and space.
There are lots of improvements in the pantry in regards to storage space. We made lots of space for cleaning supplies and utensils below the sink. The storage cabin is at arms reach where the cupboard holds lots of kitchen tools and provisions. We changed the tap to a high faucet which makes doing dishes more easy than before, especially high pots. We added a carbon filter to switch over when water is used for drinking or cooking. The filter is long lasting and replacement filters are available.
In 2021 we installed an h2o Factory ex2 12-21 watermaker. It runs on 12V using around 15 Amps, producing 15L per hour, up to 20L in good conditions. The watermaker is connected to a seacock inlet for the seawater feed, the sink outlet for the brine water. The permeat feeds directly into the aft water tank. We also installed a 3 way valve to feed the permeat to a direct testing outlet inside the boat, to tank, or to both. The fresh water flush is connected to the outside shower hose. Cleaning the membrane with alkaline or acidic cleaner is simple thanks to Speedfit hose connectors. There are no loose hoses to set up when making water and all buttons and valves can be reached from inside the boat. There is no need to run the engine when making water.
We installed a Hydrovane in 2021 for the Atlantic Crossing. It is very sturdy, reliable and easy to use. On the crossing, the Hydrovane steered 90% of the time. Rudder and Vane are kept inside when not in use and are therefore in like-new condition. We added Dyneema tethers to make sure moveable parts are not lost.
An unused Offshore Replacement Kit is included in spares.
