Following in the wake of her elder sister the Oceanis 51.1, this 40-foot cruiser, with a new hull design by Marc Lombard, offers unrivalled deck volume and interior space with no concessions to performance. The Oceanis 40.1 is available in different layouts, drafts and rigs, adapting to the most demanding sailor’s cruising requirements and satisfying their need for comfort and pleasure under sail.
With the innovative flared hull design of the Oceanis 40.1, and steps extending over a third of the bow, BENETEAU has broken new ground but made no concessions.
The result is a hull that has true speed potential and is stiff under sail. Above the waterline, her deck plan and ultra-spacious interior are unheard of on a boat this size.
The ergonomics and easy movement in the cockpit make life on board as simple as possible. Nothing interferes with the joy of life at anchor. Feel like splashing around the boat in an idyllic creek? The transom easily converts to an extensive swim platform, similar in size to the ones you’ll find on the largest Oceanis cruising yachts. Having access to the sea is an integral part of life on a boat, and this one is a model of its kind.
Sailors keen on performance can choose the First Line version, with a longer mast and a greater draft. The in-mast furling system and self-tacking jib will make maneuvering easier when shorthanded. A classic mast with a semi full batten mainsail is also available.
The hatches and many hull and coachroof portholes fill the boat with natural light and ventilation, bringing an exceptionally airy feeling to the interior, as well as the unmistakable sensation you are entering a much larger yacht! The Oceanis 40.1 comes in four different versions with two, three, or four cabins to fit everyone’s idea of a true vacation on board.
