The deck is open and easily maneuverable, with an absence of back stays – a layout used successfully on the Oceanis 30.1 and Oceanis 34.1. The generous double spreaders on the Oceanis 37.1 promise excellent performance.
To retain easy handling shorthanded, all the rigging is brought back to the two aft winches. Only the halyards remain grouped around the coachroof. All the instruments, including a 7-inch plotter, can be found on the starboard helm console.
The hull is flared with a rib giving it fluid lines below water and allowing it to achieve greater power and stability. It also improves the hull rigidity, controls the weight well, and provides greater volume inside the bow.
The Oceanis 37.1 cruiser’s interior volume is remarkable. The generous space in the salon is nearly as large as a 40 footer.
The salon is offset to port with a sofa for relaxing and a comfortable table for six, facing the lengthwise galley.
The fore cabin has a breathtaking view of the horizon through two large portholes integrated in the hull side. In the two-bathroom version, a spacious double bed is positioned against the starboard hull.
The stern has been optimized for comfort. In the standard version, there is a king-size double bed and a huge sail locker that can be accessed from inside or out.
