A year after the “Oceanis 51.1 phenomenon”, BENETEAU is still creating a small revolution in this 30-year old line. The new Oceanis 46.1 is a superb progression of the bestselling Oceanis 45, which has been very successful worldwide and was awarded the title of “European Yacht of the Year” in the Family Cruiser category, in 2012. Loyal to the Oceanis yacht’s reputation, she is a joy to live aboard, with a wide choice of fittings. She boasts all the features of a large yacht without sacrificing speed and the quality of her fittings are unbeatable for a boat of this size.
On deck, the architectural design creates a cockpit that is a great deal larger than on other yachts on the market and the spaces are skilfully distributed. The large cockpit table is designed for up to eight people and also cleverly houses the life raft. Manoeuvres have been made much easier by grouping the winches at the helm, creating a large space to unwind on either side of the companionway – equipped with two elegant reclining sun loungers together with drinks holders. When it is time for a nap, these can easily be lifted and taken to the yacht’s bow to relax there instead. The aft of the Oceanis 46.1 hits the same note of comfort and well-being. A single step separates the cockpit from the huge swim platform, affording easy access to all the pleasures of the sea, much to everyone’s delight. You will also love the plancha grill built into the aft of the helm station, allowing you to cook from the platform or the cockpit.
