For sale: This stunning Beneteau Oceanis 38 benefits from the cruiser two cabin layout. Built in 2015 to a 2016 model year, she comes with a high level of specification including in-mast reefing, a fantastic sail wardrobe, heating, B&G electronics pack & bow thruster and much more. Her current owners are moving to charter yachts further afield so the vast majority of their equipment is also included in the sale as you can see from the specification.

When Sailing Today reviewed the Beneteau Oceanis 38 they said: 'She’s an easy boat to sail with an assured, but undramatic performance and the cockpit layout works well – both for moving about under way and for loafing around at anchor....her bright, open interior makes being below pleasurable and relaxing.'
