Beneteau 30.1

With an overall size of under 9×3 metres and a light displacement of less than 4 tonnes, the Oceanis can be trailed by road
by a professional, without having to deal with an extra-wide load. If you prefer to go to your sailing grounds by canals and
rivers, the lifting keel and rotat-ing mast version opens limitless programmes. Perfect for sailing on lakes or for coastal
hop-ping, this new Oceanis is, never theless, a robust category B sailing yacht, fitted out for off-shore sailing. The smallest
of the range offers the biggest choice of programmes!

The Oceanis 30.1 has a hull designed by Finot-Conq and meets the
performance and easy sailing challenge of the recent generation
inaugurated in 2017 with the 51.1. She boasts a slender stem widening
in a hard chine above the waterline, optimized weight, stiff canvas, and a
square-top mainsail as standard, giving her everything she needs to perform
well in all points of sailing. Thrill seekers and new sailors from the world of
dinghy sailing will love the unusual tiller on twin rudders. Sailors who prefer
comfort will choose the twin steering wheels. For beginners or for shorthanded
sailing, the self-tailing jib and the single winch will be perfect. For
high performance, Oceanis 30.1 can be equipped with an large overlapping
genoa, a furling code zero or an asymmetric spinnaker (stemhead built into
the hull design).

With a hard-chine hull and well-proportioned sides and
coachroof, the Oceanis 30.1 honestly looks like a small yacht.
The aft beam has space for two steering wheels, which frees up
the cockpit. In the configuration with a tiller lifting on anchoring,
there is even more space available. Apart from being visually
attractive, the unstayed mast with swept back spreaders gets rid
of the back stay and frees up aft movement. The same goes for
the mainsail sheet, which, placed forward of the companionway,
frees up space while making manoeuvres safer. On either side of
the large fold-away cockpit table are two large benches, which
easily seat up to six guests. Aft, a step affords access to the sea
and can be supplemented by a small lifting platform.
Successfully meeting a very demanding set of specifications,
particularly in terms of volume and cruiseability, the Oceanis
30.1 has won a few extra centimetres in strategic places, and in
this it stands apart from its competitors. By making the soles
part of the boats structure, headroom has been increased to
1.98 m midship and 1.85 m in the two cabins. The centimetres
won at the bow and aft, give her length enough for two goodsized
double cabins, a wonderful open space (a real entranceway
for each of the cabins) and allow lengthwise berths. The two
times 2 metres of benches in the saloon provide an additional
place for extra berths. The large shower room is divided into
a marine toilet on one side and shower and washbasin on the
other. At the foot of the companionway, the L-shaped galley has
top and bottom storage, a 75 litres refrigerator and a real oven
under the gas hob. Another important element of com-fort on
the Oceanis 30.1 is the gently sloping companionway (3 steps at
33°) present on all the BENETEAU cruising range yachts.
And because boating for everyone requires affordable prices,
the Oceanis 30.1 is an-nounced at a ready-to-sail price that
beats other cruisers in its category.
