Oceanis 41, the freedom of the call of the ocean. Loyal to the Oceanis spirit:
simply enjoying the pleasure of being on board. Top level comfort and real sailing performance. An obvious choice, a boat in the Beneteau tradition.
This American-built yacht is a solid performer. "Boat Review" from our January 2012 issue. by Herb McCormick
Built in the U.S.A. in Marion, South Carolina, the on-deck centerpiece of Beneteau’s new line of Oceanis yachts—including the nifty, well-proportioned Oceanis 41—is the central, attractive arch just forward of the cockpit, which is not only stylish but functional. It serves as the anchor point for the mainsheet, as the framework for a tight dodger and bimini, and includes a pair of integral handholds that allow safe and easy access to and from the cockpit.
That’s noteworthy, because the expansive cockpit, with twin steering stations and a clever, innovative convertible transom that folds open to become a handy swim ladder and boarding platform (while greatly increasing the “floor plan” and living space at anchor), is a place to which sailors will naturally gravitate.
Under sail, the Oceanis 41 is a solid performer, registering upwind speeds in the mid-6s on a gusty Chesapeake Bay afternoon with the breeze in the low teens and knocking off a solid 8 knots when cracked off on a broad reach. In puffier air, the furling main and jib were quickly and efficiently shortened to balance the sail plan. The Goiot wheels were light and responsive; the boat was a joy to drive. And the Boat of the Year judges? All smiles.
