Beneteau Launches new models!

Beneteau Oceanis 41
Beneteau Oceanis 45

Beneteau launched the Oceanis series in the 1980’s and last year the evolution of the range continued with the Oceanis 58 and 50. This fall Beneteau will introduce two new models, the Oceanis 45 and 41, which will both be built at Beneteau’s factory in Marion, SC.

The Oceanis 41 and 45 offer more space and comfort while preserving the great sailing characteristics of the range. Designed by naval architects Finot-Conq and Associates the boats have a sleek low profile cabin with long coachroof windows. Essential elements that characterize the Oceanis range such as a large cockpit securely enclosed by an athwartship helmsman’s bench, pure and stretched lines and good performance still exist. Major highlights of these new Oceanis include a luminous interior plus an ingenious full width, electrically operated transom enclosure that provides easy access to the sea. This new feature, which is normally only seen on Super Yachts, incorporates the aft bathing platform opening by remote control.
Multiple layout options are available for the salon and the Dock & Go joystick control maneuvering system is also offered as an available option on the 41 and 45.

Both the Oceanis 41 and 45 will be at the Annapolis Sailboat Show October 6-10, 2011. Stop by and see us!
