BENETEAU LAUNCHES NEW OCEANIS 41.1 CRUISER

Oceanis 41 2

 

Jan 24, 2016

Beneteau America announces the launch of the all-new Oceanis41.1  at the upcoming Strictly Sail Miami boat show in February. Brighter, sleeker and customizable, the latest addition to the Oceanis family — proudly in Marion, South Carolina — is the result of Beneteau’s remarkable effort to streamline a 41-footer from bow to stern and define a new standard of openness at this size.

Overall the new Oceanis 41.1 is a very modern yet realistic mid-size cruiser, thanks to her ultra-sleek design and impressive equipment level.  The hard chine that has become the trademark of the Oceanis range stretches along the entire length of the hull of the 41.1 for a reduced heeling angle and optimized living spaces inside. Six oversized hull windows bring in even more natural light, and her deck fitted with larger portholes as well as flush hatches and tracks further contribute to her sleek silhouette.

The cockpit is incredibly spacious for her size. It features twin helms with folding helm seats and is equipped with standard courtesy lights. The new deck joint has been redesigned in fiberglass and is fitted with the navigation lights for a streamlined profile – the absence of the typical wooden toe rail also translates into easier maintenance! The flip-down swim platform which offers nearly 22 square foot of access to the water can be operated with optional electric controls. When folded, the platform conceals a clever folding step into the transom.

The main sail arch of the 41.1 continues to prevent lines from crowding the cockpit and maximizing entertainment, but has become very slender and opens up the profile of the boat even further. The descent into the salon is very comfortable with a 45-degree angle companionway.

 

The new Oceanis 41.1 is available in 2- and 3-cabin layouts, each with one or two heads.

The L-shaped galley is placed to port right next to the companionway, and offers a large refrigerator space (50 Gal), and a single, deep sink in stainless steel. Storage is plentiful and well thought-out, not only in the surrounding cabinets but also in the galley and salon floor. Storage capacity further improves in the 2-cabin configuration, and the newfound space can also be fitted with a dishwasher. Furthermore, an access door to port leads aft to the sail locker, batteries and breakers box.

 

The salon is full beam and is equipped with a U-shape seating area with center table that can accommodate 6 to 8 guests. It also includes a very comfortable bench and well-appointed chart table to port, opposite the dining area.

 

In the forward cabin, the forward facing berth is a distinctive achievement for a boat her size – and in the 2-cabin configuration, the double door access to the owners cabin further contributes to an incredible feel of openness. Storage abounds here again, on either side of the berth and below it. The main head is fitted with a separate shower stall and two access doors: one private access from the owners’ cabin and another from the salon for day use.

 

Plenty of windows and opening portholes allow for much natural light in the guest cabins that are also appointed with large beds and above-average stowage compartments.

The layout configuration options together with the owner’s choice between two interior wood colors and three padding options for the wall coverings brings an entire new level of customization to this new yacht.

 

Beneteau is poised to capture the heart of the sailing cruising market with an incredibly attractive boat that is also within the reach of her targeted audience.

 

Join Beneteau at the American Premiere of the Oceanis 41.1 at Strictly Sail Miami at Miamarina at Bayside, February 11-15 2016.

Lead by Executive Director Marie-France MacKinnon and executed by her team and their public affairs firm, BlueSky Strategy Group, the results were impressive. The NMMA Canada Board of Directors were organized into teams with business interests and special skills matched up to politicians and senior bureaucrats to most effectively present the marine industry’s agenda of issues.

As a back-up to modern electronics, it’s a vital navigational tool that belongs on every commercial and recreational boat.
