The flared hull increases the area on the fore deck. This makes for a better flow of movement and makes anchoring or mooring easier. The cockpit is quite large, much bigger than on its predecessor, the Oceanis 41.1, and on competitor's boats of the same size. It is ingeniously laid out to allow for a clear demarcation between active and relaxation spaces. These are the strengths of this new 40 foot cruiser.
Line and halyards lead aft to the two helm stations now further to the rear, leaving space for a large cockpit table for 6 guests, under which is a dedicated space for the life raft. The two long L-shaped benches on either side are unobstructed, as the halyard winches and mainsail sheets are on the roof.
The Oceanis 40.1 comes in 4 different versions with 2, 3 i 4 cabins to fit everyone's idea of life on board. Couples and large families will feel like they are at home! The owner versions has a master cabin with an ensuite shower. The 4 cabins version keeps a cabin with a double bed, and an additional cabin with bunk beds. With a walnut or oak base, the styling of the interior by Italian designers Nauta, in Milan, excels in its remarkable brightness and clever arrangement of living spaces.
AC-shaped galley on the starboard provides lot of storage and a spacious countertop. On the port side, there is a large saloon together with table and removable bench, and the table at the foot of the companionway provides ample working space and lots of storage. You cannot help but notice the feeling of space, yet nothing is set in stone, so coachroof portholes, two of which look towards the cockpit, and the hatches fill the boat with natural light and ventilation, making her exceptionally bright.
The Oceanis 40.1 follows in the wake of her elder sister the Oceanis 51.1, which, upon its launch in 2017, marked a new era of cruiser by Beneteau. The volumes and space on deck and inside are unprecedented, but with the Marc Lombard hull design, no concessions have been made to performance. Additionally, the Oceanis 40.1 is available in different layouts, draughts and rigs, to meet the requirements of the most demanding sailors, in terms of comfort and sailing pleasure. For Families, couples, friends, young people and old salts, this versatile new 12-meter cruiser is perfectly adaptable to fit your cruising needs!
