Beneteau Oceanis 40.1 Sailboat Key Features [New Boat For Sale]

Marina Nazario | December 1, 2020



The Beneteau Oceanis 40.1 is a recent addition to the Oceanis range available for sale in South Florida.

Beneteau didn’t expect its Oceanis 41.1 to experience the success that it did — but with over 550 hulls sold around the world, it exceeded sailing expectations of boat owners. Yet all good things must come to an end. The Oceanis 40.1 is replacing the 41.1 model, adding another exciting sailboat to this size range.

The Oceanis 40.1 is designed for comfort and ease of maneuvering. This sailboat’s best feature is its versatile functions that accommodate different types of sailors. After watching Cruising World’s interview with Beneteau sailboat sales manager Sarah Angell Jones, we’re highlighting the key features of the Oceanis 40.1. This is an extremely impressive sailboat.

The innovative flared hull design of the Oceanis 40.1 has excellent speed potential during a poised and comfortable ride. This sailboat is available in different layouts, drafts, and rig options to accommodate sailors while also satisfying the need for comfort and pleasure underway.

Starting with key exterior features, the OC 40.1 has a large boat platform with an intermediate step to make entering and exiting the cockpit comfortable and safe for all ages. This detail also makes it easy to get into and out of the water when the boat is anchored. The cockpit is spacious and well designed. Two, long L-shaped benches face each other and are unobstructed as the halyard winches and mainsail sheets are on the coachroof. A deluxe table and plenty of seating create a peaceful setting for lunch on the water.

Like other Beneteau sailboats and catamarans, the Oceanis 40.1 has two consoles for driving with everything you need to navigate within an arm’s reach away. Twin rudders on this boat allow for stability and comfort while underway.

The interior space on the OC 40.1 is filled with impressive features that upgrade standard living arrangements on sailboats. This is the only boat in her size range with a clear path from the companionway to the forward stateroom. The Beneteau OC 40.1 sailboat has a standard 2 cabin, 1 head layout, but it can be adjusted to 4 cabins and 2 heads to offer extra space for families. The master cabin is a key feature on this sailboat — you can access the bed from both sides, which is something you don’t always get on a 40 foot sailboat. It also has two hanging lockers and plenty of storage space, making it a comfortable sleeping arrangement when you’re at sea.

The C-shaped galley is a smart upgrade to classic L-shaped galleys on other sailboats, providing space to prepare food without feeling cramped or in the way of guests. The galley is equipped with a double sink, plenty of counter and storage space, and top of the line appliances.

The Oceanis 40.1 comes in several versions because there is no one way to sail and everyone cruises at their own pace. This is an ideal sailboat for families, couples, or friends as it offers a surprising amount of space on deck and below deck. Check out Cruising World’s interview below for a Q&A about this sailboat’s key features or contact Denison yacht broker, Jeff Erdmann, to schedule a showing. The Oceanis 40.1 is adaptable to fit your cruising needs and currently for sale with Denison Yachting.
