Beneteau: New Sailboat Models to Debut This Fall

Beneteau Fall Models

Sept 6, 2016

In addition to the Oceanis Yacht 62, two more new sailboat models, the Oceanis 35.1 and Oceanis 38.1, will be launched at the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis on October 6-10.

The Oceanis 35 and 38 models of the past have evolved into two new models for 2017 with redesigned interiors and exteriors.

These two new cruisers offer a choice between a standard mast or a carbon mast and can come with or without a furling drum. Experienced racers and cruisers will benefit from these personalized rigging options. A new L-shaped galley located on the port side of the 45-degree companionway provides a seating salon arrangement which has room for eight around the table.

Propelled by dual Volvo Penta 300 hp diesel engines and incorporating the new Air Step 2 hull design, the Gran Turismo 40 provides a combination of increased fuel efficiency and maneuverability, while offering an appealing sense of style in her new shape.

However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
