Canadian Yachting met up with Robb Butler of Grand Yachts at the Annapolis Boat Show on board the new Beneteau 41.1.

Here is what Robb had to say, “Upon viewing the new Beneteau 41.1 I was struck with the new ultra-sleek lines. The trademark hard chine stretches for the entire length of the hull creating a reduced heeling angle and optimizing the interior volume. The flush deck hatches add to the overall sleekness. With the 22 square foot swim platform in the down position the twin wheel cockpit becomes an enormous entertainment area.”

“Very noticeable is the new deck joint which does away with the traditional wood toe rail which always requires maintenance.

The full beam salon with a U-shaped can accommodate 6 to 8 guests.

With a choice of 2 or 3 cabins, 1 or 2 heads and two interior wood colours, the 41.1 offers a high level customization.

The 41.1 is another stunning addition to the Beneteau stable.”

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
