Beneteau Oceanis 40.1

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 unrivalled deck volume and interior space, with zero concessions to performance. The Oceanis 40.1 is available in different layouts, drafts and rig options, adapting to the most demanding sailor’s cruising requirements and satisfying their need for comfort and pleasure under sail.

How can you enjoy life at anchor as much as while sailing? With the innovative flared hull design of the Oceanis 40.1, 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 by Nauta Design is unheard of on a boat this size. You cannot help feeling that you are aboard a 45 foot cruiser!

With a walnut or white oak ambiance, the styling of the interior by Italian designers Nauta, is remarkably bright and excels in the skillful arrangement of the living spaces. She is available with two, three or four cabins and a C-shaped galley to the 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 provides ample working space. Everything is modular, so that everyone can live the way they want and enjoy sailing wherever the wind takes them.


The ergonomics and easy maneuvering in the cockpit make life on board simple. 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 find on the largest Oceanis cruising yachts. Having access to the sea is an integral part of life on a sailing yacht, and this model is one of a kind. 


As there is no one way to sail, and because everyone takes their cruising at their own pace, the Oceanis 40.1 comes in several versions. Sailors keen on performance can choose the First Line Pack, with a taller mast and a deeper draft. Whereas, the in-mast furling system and self-tacking jib will make maneuvering easier when shorthanded. A classic mast for a semi full batten mainsail is also available.


The hatches and the many hull and coachroof portholes, two of which face towards the cockpit, fill the boat with natural light and ventilation, making her exceptionally bright. The Oceanis 40.1 comes in 4 different versions with two, three, and four cabins to accomodate everyone’s idea of a holiday on board. Couples and large families will feel at home. The owner version has a cabin with an ensuite shower and head, and a bed easily accessible from either side. The four-cabin layout has two forward berths with bunk beds.

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 unrivalled interior space, a huge deck plan and the ability to clock up miles when you are cruising.
