BENETEAU OCEANIS 40.1 HULL #116 – At our docks

Following in the wake of her elder sister the Oceanis 46.1, this 40-foot cruiser, with a new hull design by Marc Lombard, offers unrivaled deck volume and interior space, with zero concessions to performance. Our Oceanis 40.1 has a three cabin, one head layout in a warm and luxurious walnut wood.

With the innovative flared hull design of our Oceanis 40.1, BENETEAU has broken new ground and amplified the spaciousness and performance of this 40 footer to rival larger boats.  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 by Nauta Design is unheard-of on a boat this size. You cannot help feeling that you are aboard a 45-foot cruiser!

The styling of the interior by Italian designer Nauta, is remarkably bright and excels in the skillful arrangement of the living spaces. The clever C-shaped galley to starboard offers an abundance of storage and a spacious countertop. On the port side, there is a large salon with a table complete with a removable bench, and a chart table at the foot of the companionway to provide ample working space.

The philosophy of the Oceanis 40.1 is to make sailing and mooring pleasurable. The strengths of this cruiser, studied in detail by the architect Marc Lombard and the BENETEAU design office, are unrivaled interior space, a large, safe and comfortable deck plan. A great cruiser for many reasons.
