New Oceanis 46.1 by Beneteau: Performance & Comfort.
Read our review of the Oceanis 46.1 by Andy Adams and John Armstrong HERE
The Oceanis 46.1 offers a true balance between elegance, performance, and comfort. Her stepped hull adds massive amounts of volume below with no compromise to seakeeping abilities. Her deck and cockpit layout make her an easy boat to sail doublehanded, and a large number of custom options and trims ensure she will be tailored to each sailor’s expectations and requirements.
The Oceanis 46.1 is based on a Finot-Conq plan, keeping the distinctive stepped hull of the 51.1. Apart from her performance at sea and the huge amount of space that set this boat apart, this architecture makes optimal use of the cockpit beam. An incredibly efficient deck plan makes her wonderfully safe and easy to use. The furling mast, self-tailing jib and all the halyards and sheets brought back to a single winch at each of the helm stations, make maneuvering simple when short-handed sailing.
Large hull portholes bring a considerable amount of natural light right into the center of the boat, so that you can truly enjoy the elegant interiors by Nauta Design. A choice of satin light oak or mahogany set the tone and create the interior atmosphere, which can be readily customized.
