Key Features

The ergonomics and easy movement in the cockpit make life on board so simple. Nothing interferes with the joy of life at anchor. Feel like splashing around the boat in an idyllic creek? The transom easily converts to an extensive swim platform, similar in size to the ones you find on the largest Oceanis cruising yachts. Having access to the sea is an integral part of life on a sailing yacht, and this one is a model of its kind.
As there is no one way to sail, and because everyone takes their cruising at their own pace, the Oceanis 40.1 comes in several versions. Sailors keen on performance can choose the First Line version, with a longer mast and a greater draught. The in-mast furling system and self-tacking jib will make manoeuvring easier shorthanded. A classic mast for a semi full batten mainsail is also available.
The hatches and the many hull and coachroof portholes, two of which look towards the cockpit, fill the boat with natural light and ventilation, making her exceptionally bright. You really feel like you are entering a much bigger boat! The Oceanis 40.1 comes in 4 different versions with two, three, and four cabins to fit everyone’s idea of a holiday on board. Couples and large families will feel like they are at home! The owner version has a suite with ensuite shower and head, and a bed easily accessed from either side. The four-cabin version has two forward spaces with bunk beds.
