When Beneteau created Oceanis 38, they wanted to offer a new way of experiencing life at sea. Therefore they decided to make it entirely upgradeable, which means that the original interior design is loft-inspired. There are actually three different Oceanis 38 models which serve different purposes, as their names suggest: Daysailer, Weekender and Cruiser.
The elegant exterior was made by the naval architects Finot-Conq and the flexible interior and the deck were designed by the Italian company Nauta Design.
The Daysailer has one spacious double front cabin and one bathroom. It has a very large and welcoming salon and a streamlined cockpit. This version of the yacht produces a striking impression of space given the fact that the partitions have been abolished and there’s only one single room.
The Weekender version of the Oceanis 38 is upgradable, having two possible layouts: two or three customizable cabins: open and closed cabins, fitted galley, separate shower cabin, spare table and helmsman seats. This version allows sailors to adapt the layout according to their needs and preferences.
The Oceanis 38 Cruiser has three partitioned cabins. There’s the possibility of making it completely open by taking out the partition of the front cabin. The salon can seat up to six people and it faces a spacious kitchen.
Oceanis 38 already won three awards in 2014: the ”Family cruiser” category in the ”European Yacht of the Year”, the ”Sail Best Boats” and the ”NMMA Innovation Awards”.
Highlights of the Oceanis 38:
This yacht model has a mainsail arch which enables a completely safe sailing experience and it gives more space in the cockpit. Oceanis 38 has helmsman seats and a fully opening transom which converts to swim platform. Moreover, this model is provided with furling genoa with UV protective strip and semi-full batten logo mainsail with slider.
Beneteau has an exclusive set of luggage called ”Rolling Locker” that was designed by Phillipe Cassegrain, Chairman of Longchamp. Containing all the accessories needed, it makes storage much easier on board.
