Beneteau Oceanis 38 – 2016
The Oceanis 38 cleverly combine practical features, performance, and elegance on boat sizes where function generally outweighs personalisation: the Oceanis range continues to stand by its desire to offer a wide choice to demanding customers.
Her chined hull offers particularly surprising cruising comfort. Good and taut to aft and low on the water, the rigidity under sail of this cruiser takes her further and faster, with exceptional stability. It is a real joy to have two helm stations, a mainsail arch and a huge swim platform on a sailing yacht this size.
For the Italian design team, the challenge was to multiply the living spaces in the saloon and offer greater privacy in the owner cabin, while maintaining the visual perspective that her opening to the bow offered in previous versions.
The new L-shaped galley makes a facing seat saloon arrangement possible. The space has been well optimised to allow eight people to sit around the table.
