Find A New Sailboat For Sale With Denison Yachting.

There’s a noticeable shift in the air when it hits June 20, the official start of summer in North America. Of course, the weather is warmer. But people also seem more relaxed. The kids are out of school, Summer Fridays are a thing, and there’s an effort to get outside or be on the water

There’s also more time — longer days and scheduled time off work mean you can take that sailing trip around New England or enjoy the warm waters of the Caribbean. What are you waiting for? Here are 3 new sailboats to upgrade your summer sailing. Let’s set sail.


Discover New England With The Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54

The Beneteau Oceanis 54 is optimized for summer sailing with friends or family in tow. The OC 54 is equipped with a huge swim platform — nicknamed “Terrace on the Sea” — that adds usable space to the cockpit. From here, it’s easy to access the longitudinal dingy garage at the transom of the boat, which can hold an 8-foot inflatable tender. Perfect for exploring remote destinations. Twin helms aft offer unobstructed views of the deck and up to the sails. You can maneuver this sailboat easily without being in the way of guests (or vice versa), yet everything you need to navigate (winches, throttle, bow thruster) is within arm’s length from the helm.

The interior space on the Beneteau OC 54 offers a wow factor that you won’t see on other boats in her range. Attention to detail highlights a blend of colors, a gentle sloping companionway, and thoughtful lighting. The Oceanis 54 has a standard 3 cabin, 2 head layout, but it can be adjusted to 3 cabins and 3 heads, and both can be built using light oak or walnut. This new sailboat is for sale and primed for a family sailing trip in New England.


Sail Around The Caribbean In The Beneteau Oceanis 46.1

Beneteau’s new Oceanis 46.1 is built at the French company’s manufacturing facility in the U.S. She has an incredibly efficient deck plan, including a furling mast and self-tacking jib that makes her a dream to sail and maneuver. All of the halyards and sheets are brought back to a single winch at each helm station.

The Oceanis 46.1 boasts a spacious cockpit that can host 8 guests around a large table. When you’re ready to kick your feet up, there are two reclining sun loungers with drinks holders on either side of the companionway. The interior features unparalleled space including a master cabin with a shower room and separate head, offering comfort worthy of a much bigger sailing yacht. 

The performance, layout, and deck plan of the OC 46.1 make it *chef’s kiss* for summer sailing in the Southeast and Caribbean. Expect unique cruising sensations onboard this new sailboat for sale.


Navigate the West Coast With The Dufour 390

Summer is a great season for sailing on the West Coast thanks to strong ocean breezes. But it also means you have to be aware of swells in the Pacific and high pressure off the California coast.

Dufour has a 60-year reputation for building versatile and adaptable boats. The company introduced the 390 model in 2019 and it is one of the newest models in the range. She features sleek lines that coincide with her performance while still boasting a comfortable and spacious layout. The meticulous layout of deck spaces, immense rear transom, sunbathing areas, and outdoor galley bring guests together on this sailboat. She’s packed with innovative tricks, technology, and optimization.

The new Dufour 390 that’s available for sale with Denison is configured with a 2-cabin 1 head layout, which creates a roomy aft head with a shower, a large storage garage on the side port, and a spacious forward cabin without the optional second head. The Dufour 390 is your ticket to California sailing.
