The Oceanis 40.1

BENETEAU will be unveiling the Oceanis 40.1 and the Oceanis Yacht 54 on the Chesapeake this summer, following the release of the Oceanis 30.1 and the First Yacht 53 last fall.

These two new cruisers will offer sailors a combination of performance and comfort, delivered through ultramodern hull shapes and the style cues that continue to make the Oceanis range unmistakable.

The yachts will offer a lengthy list of semi-customizable options, trim levels, keel and rig choices, and hull colors. With the finest gear and technology available today, both yachts meet the needs of the most demanding sailors, whether their plans involve a leisurely social-distance sunset run or a true bluewater passage.

The Oceanis 40.1 comes with a surprising amount of space on deck and volume below, thanks to the work of celebrated naval architect Marc Lombard. She is elegant, versatile, and fast, perfect for new boaters, cruising families, and veteran sailors looking to round the mark sooner than everyone else.

As Sarah Angell, sailboat sales manager, recently notes “the 40-foot range has always been an important segment for BENETEAU – the previous model, the Oceanis 41.1, sold over 550 hulls worldwide! And for good reason, at this size there are plenty of slip and mooring options available, and while you can cruise with just two people, the boat is spacious enough for parties up to six or more. “

The Oceanis Yacht 54 follows in the wake of the Oceanis Yacht 62, still the largest monohull sailboat ever built by the brand, and shares some DNA with her performance-driven cousin, the First Yacht 53. Sailboat sales manager, Eric LeVine, said in an interview, “You’ve got a boat that is very close, in terms of useable living space, to the comfort that you’re accustomed to in your actual home. You have storage capacity for nearly limitless ocean cruising. You can entertain large parties in an environment that is both luxurious and exciting. And you can doublehand her out of a slip when you just want to get away from it all.”

Throw away the box, this is some fresh thinking

Seemingly part sailboat and part spaceship, the new Jeanneau Yachts 55 just busted through the boundaries of traditional yacht design. I couldn’t take my eyes off the bubble hardtop that met me at the dock and I stepped aboard with trepidation. A few hours later, I was planning how to spend my not-yet-won lottery winnings.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. 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.
