St. Barts Yachts is new Greenline dealer

St. Barts Yachts is proud to be named the new dealer for Greenline Yacht Sales in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. 

The company will represent Seaway’s line of hybrid yachts in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. The models include the Greenline33, 40 and 48

Greenline Yachts are powered by a diesel/electric drive system. Lithium polymer batteries are charged by a photovoltaic system located on the roof that converts sunlight into electricity while the boat is docked or at anchor. 

We have a 33 on order and we expect that she will be here by November. 

We are looking forward to working with the largest hybrid fleet of yachts in the world.

Oceanis 38 to debut at US Sailboat Show

Beneteau Introduces 38 Footer You Design to Fit Your Lifestyle

Beneteau will reveal its newest concept in sailboat design when it launches the Oceanis 38 at the United States Sailboat Show, October 10-14, 2013 in Annapolis, MD.

“The Oceanis 38 offers a level of customization no other builder has ever offered before at this size. However, what is quite remarkable, and what makes the Oceanis 38 so innovative is the fact this boat can evolve with your changing needs over time. The boat should fit its owner, not the other way around,” says Beneteau America President Laurent Fabre.

The new Oceanis 38 can be a day sailer, weekender, or cruiser based on the owner’s needs and preferences.

The day sailer offers an open, loft-like space with clean lines and an uncluttered feel. A two-person berth is located far forward and the aft of the yacht is dedicated to storage.

The weekender features two and three-cabin layouts, which can remain open or enclosed based on privacy preferences. It can also include a separate shower, fitted galley and extra table in the salon and/or cockpit. The weekender offers the most flexibility allowing many interior components to be added to the yacht as the owner’s needs evolve over time.

The cruiser can have two or three fitted cabins, a large galley, mainsail arch, helmsman seats and swim platform. While more conventional, its owners can choose the layout configuration and some components based on personal inclination.

The Oceanis 38 features a continuous full-length chine and deep draft T-shaped keel, which has proven to enhance performance, increase stiffness and provide stability while reducing heel. Moreover, the yacht’s twin rudders make way for a more responsive helm.

See her for the first time in North America at the US Sailboat Show, October 10-14!
