The Oceanis 31 is an excellent family cruising boat that is small but safe and offers responsive handling, whether in cruising or racing mode. Sailors who are looking for high-performance will enjoy the Performance Pack (Elvström Windward 300+ sail). The Oceanis 31 is offered in three different drafts, one allowing for a completely beachable version.
The interior, by Italian designers Nauta Design, is offered in two layouts. The Loft layout presents an open space with a forward cabin that’s not separated by a bulkhead, which is ideal for a couple. If an owner plans to sail with children or guests, then the Bulkhead version gives better privacy, with a separate forward cabin. The aft cabin is the same in either version. The wood choices of the interior is up to the owner and is available in either a light oak or rich mahogany, which changes the atmosphere on board.
