Beneteau returned to the Finot Groupe design team and asked them to come up with a range of yachts that were well balanced and safe on the oceans. What materialised was the new generation of Oceanis models which embody the Beneteau philosophy of comfortable cruising coupled with effortless grace and handling.
The mast is now situated slightly aft of the traditional position making the boat more balanced. The sail area is not compromised and indeed the mainsail and genoa offer the same 50 squared meters of sail area. each This negates the need for a huge overlapping headsail to provide power and makes the yacht sail and handle beautifully regardless of wind conditions.
The addition of the arch over the cockpit provides a natural home for the mainsheet leaving the cockpit uncluttered. The 9/10 aluminium mast is deck stepped and the boom is out of the way well above head height. Twin set of spreaders and stainless steel standing rigging. All lines are led aft from the mast through a series of deck organisers and clutches to the self tailing winches. The winch mounted on the port side of the companionway is electric. The genoa sheet winches are also electric Harken 50.2 STC and when used with the Harken Speed grip winch handles trimming is a breeze.
In-mast furling mainsail by Kemp with vertical battens making the operation smooth. The Roller furling headsail system with large capacity drum at deck level. The mast, all standing rigging, roller furling system and the mainsail were all replaced in 2022. Genoa tracks port and starboard with piston adjusted traveller cars and genoa sheet return blocks. Roller reefing genoa with UV strip for protection.
