Beneteau Oceanis 30
The Oceanis 30 is the introductory model in the Oceanis sailboat model range. Small enough to tow and trailer, you can take this model wherever you want to go. While she can easily be sailed single-handedly, there are two spacious cabins below, a saloon and galley.
Beneteau Oceanis 34
Similar to the Oceanis 30, the Oceanis 34 features a sleeker hull, more sail space and added room in the owner’s cabin. A large galley and saloon area can be found below deck, in addition to the configuration of either two or three cabins, with one head onboard.
Beneteau Oceanis 40
The Oceanis 40 is an evolution of her larger sistership, the Oceanis 51.1ft model. With interior designs by Nauta Design and a new hull design by Marc Lombard, the Oceanis 40 comes with three configuration options – two, three or four cabins with a C-shaped galley kitchen and large saloon.
Beneteau Oceanis 46
With an interior more suited to a larger cruising yacht, the Oceanis 46 offers ample deck space and interior design, available in many customizable options. Depending on your goals for this Oceanis sailboat model, the cabins can come in a configuration of three, four or five cabins.
Beneteau Oceanis 51
The final Oceanis sailboat in this range before reaching the yacht category, the 51ft model comes with an impressive 700 different configurations, making it highly customizable. A large sailing area, spacious cockpit and swimming platform give the Oceanis 51 the feel of a yacht much larger than her size category.
Beneteau Yacht FAQ
How much is a Beneteau Oceanis 40?
The Oceanis 40 has a starting price of $257,000 excluding taxes (approximate conversion from €234,400).
Can I trailer a Beneteau Oceanis 45?
Most people would recommend trailering sailboats up to around 27 feet or so. It depends on the length, height and weight of your boat before you can discern whether towing your sailboat is an option, however, under 30ft seems to be the going number.
In this case, no, you will not be able to trailer a Oceanis 45 boat yourself. If you need to transport the boat on the road, and not on the water, you will have to look into oversize boat hauling which is when specific companies have the right equipment to move your boat for you.
Does the Beneteau Oceanis 45 table drop into a bed?
Since the Oceanis 45 sailboat comes with a few configuration options, similar to the other Oceanis sailboat models, you’ll have a few choices when it comes to cabins. However, the salon table on the Oceanis 45 boat can indeed be dropped down to form an additional bed when required.
How high can a Beneteau Oceanis 40 point?
How high a sailboat can point refers to when the vessel is traveling upwind, diagonally to the wind direction. The smaller the angle between the direction of the wind and the sailing course, the higher the vessels “point” which is usually used to determine the weatherliness of a boat.
While the exact height a sailboat will point depends on the wind conditions and sails being used, the Oceanis 40 can point at around 60 degrees wind angle to get an average of 7.5 knots of speed.
Is the Beneteau Oceanis 34 fast?
The Oceanis 34 will average a speed of around 7.5 knots in the right conditions, with some maxing out around 8.5 knots in favorable conditions. Depending on the sails you have available, and the weather conditions, you may see speeds higher than this, and of course, lower at times of minimal winds as well.
