Beneteau Oceanis 38.1
In the tradition of the latest 41.1, the Oceanis 38.1 cleverly combines practical features, performance, and elegance on boat size where function generally outweighs personalisation: the Oceanis range continues to stand by its desire to offer a wide choice to demanding customers.
The Oceanis 38.1's chined hull offers particularly surprising cruising comfort. Good and taut to aft and low on the water, the rigidity under sail of this cruiser takes her further and faster, with exceptional stability. It is a real joy to have two helm stations, a mainsail arch and a huge swim platform on a sailing yacht this size.
For the Italian design team, the challenge was to multiply the living spaces in the saloon and offer greater privacy in the owner cabin, while maintaining the visual perspective that her opening to the bow offered in previous Oceanis 38.
The new L-shaped galley makes a facing seat saloon arrangement possible. The space has been well optimised to allow eight people to sit around the table.
The chart table has been redesigned. Practical and effective, it folds away to leave more room in the saloon.
Designed to suit a variety of sailing programmes and increasingly different lifestyles on board, the Oceanis 38.1 is available respectively in 6 versions with varied layouts: number of cabins and bathrooms, modularity of the saloon, choice of galley, storage capacity, etc.
The forward full double bed owner cabin is accessed by a double door, so the owner can enjoy wonderful privacy or a pleasant forward view of the boat when the doors are open.
The Oceanis 38.1 offer a choice between a contemporary light oak or more classic Mahogany Alpi joinery. Once the cabinet work has been decided upon, a wide choice of linings and upholstery colours and materials adds the finishing personal touches.
