Renewing a model is always a challenge, particularly when it is one of the best sellers on the market, which the BENETEAU Oceanis 38.1 was in its 9 years on the water. The brief Marc Lombard and Nauta Design were given contained two key features: Greater volume and improved performance! While retaining the ease of use that has been a hallmark of the Oceanis cruisers since they were first launched in 1986.
The Oceanis 37.1 interior is remarkable, something you would not guess from its elegant profile. The generous space in the saloon is nearly as large as a 40-footer!
The hull is flared with a rib that maintains fluid lines below water and achieves greater power and stability. It also improves the hull rigidity, controlling the weight well, and providing greater volume inside the bow.
The BENETEAU Oceanis 37.1 cruiser’s saloon is offset to port and has plenty of room with a sofa for relaxing and a comfortable table for six. It faces the lengthwise galley, where the crew can go about their business without getting in the way. The guests are not disturbed by the passageway to the fore cabin, where you will find a resting space with a breathtaking view of the horizon through the large portholes integrated into the hull side. In the two-bathroom version, the bed is positioned against the starboard hull and is of generous proportions. And what about the stern? It offers top levels of comfort. In the standard version, there is a king-size double bed, and a vast sail locker, aft of the bathroom, which can be accessed from inside or out. And we find good-sized bedding even in the 3-cabin version.
Iroko, a great alternative to teak coming from Africa, is used for the cockpit decking using a new assembly process, called Iro-Deck and perfected by BENETEAU. Each strip of plywood decking is made up of several laminated layers, which guarantee a uniform color, excellent sustainability, and rule out the risk of cracks, which are frequent on solid wood decks. The BENETEAU Oceanis 37.1 meets the challenges of the times extremely well, and this can also be seen in its engine power. For a cruising program on inland waterways, carbon-free sailing is popular, which is why the Oceanis 37.1 is available with an electric motor with a 12 kW pod and 10 kWh batteries. Enough for a cruising range of 2 hours at 5 knots between two charges, all emission-free and in eco-friendly silence.
With a hull length of almost 18 meters, the BENETEAU Oceanis Yacht 60 has an elegant and sophisticated silhouette while preserving its elegant design and excellent marine qualities. The new cockpit layout provides a sense of ease and security: access to the foredeck is at the same level via deep side decks. The two helm stations have been optimized so that all maneuvers can be carried out without leaving the helm. On-board systems such as Ship Control and Seanapps provide control of all onboard systems and allow for easy maintenance. The bimini is available in 2 configurations. The rigid version has a central section that slides forward to adjust the amount of cover in the cockpit. The crew will therefore always find the best compromise between protection and ventilation. The generous dinghy garage holds a 2.8 m jet-propelled tender. This tender is operated by an electric winch with a double wire system and guiding rollers to make it effortless to launch and raise.
The galley, positioned in the center of the boat, extends across the entire width: on the port side, storage and refrigeration; on the starboard side, the sink, the oven, and the dishwasher. There is substantial storage space and an innovative worktop layout. The large saloon where six people can seat around the table facing the relaxation area with its soft sofa. The curved chart table allows the navigator to participate in all the discussions on board. Available in a 3-cabin version with 3 heads, the BENETEAU Oceanis Yacht 60 comes with two different finishes: walnut as standard and light oak on option.
