Introducing the new Oceanis 41.1 from Bénéteau which is now available to forward order. With an “on-the-water” price of £158,500 inc VAT this new Finot-Conq design displays more clever functional options than any other modern day 40-foot sailing yacht and whilst staying true to Beneteau’s value principles, she also finds herself priced lower than all her major competitors. Two or three cabin layouts both available in this veritable tardis, thanks to some clever work from the Nauta Design team, in each case with a new 2m x 1.5m forecabin double berth that can even use the headboard forward. Single or twin heads is also an option. With increased saloon space, more light than ever before from the six new large hull windows and unrivalled storage. The boat also leads a new charge of customisation for the Oceanis range, not just with layout, but also woodwork and various interior mood trims. An optional German mainsheet system and self-tacking jib are listed within the available options for even greater ease of handling. Flush hatch on the foredeck for easier moving around decks. She boats the biggest cockpit in her size and a sexy look with her new mainsail arch, from which the better sailing characteristics, 45 degree companionway and easier movement around decks stem. As with her predecessor, she maintains an opening transom, either manual or electric. Already sold out through to late Summer 2016 from drawings alone, this boat is already a guaranteed winner certain to become a classic.
