Beneteau Oceanis 38.1 Oceanis 38.1

Over a Century at Sea


The Oceanis 38.1’s 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 joy to have two helm stations, a mainsail arch and a huge swim platform on a sailing yacht this size.

On a budget but want the ability to upgrade down the road? No problem. Order the day sailor!  Modules come from the US-based manufacturing facility to upgrade from a day sailor to a weekender or a full-on cruiser.

A sensible sail plan, minimum heel, and single handed sailing characteristics make this a boat that fits you rather than the opposite.

Day Sailer

The 38.1 fitted to this model features open uncluttered spaces inside and out. Unobstructed by any bulkheads the interior is spacious with plenty of storage space aft.


A selection of a two or three, open or closed cabin layout, separate shower and fitted galley give this model the greatest choice in potential modifications.


The Cruiser version includes two or three fitted cabins, a large galley and a head with a separate shower to sustain comfort on longer journeys.

45° Companionway

The mainsail arch, characteristic of all the large Oceanis yachts, is an important innovation that has led to many architectural developments, among which is a very gently sloping 45° companionway.
