The Oceanis 38.1’s chined hull offers particularly surprising cruising comfort. Good and taut to aft and low on the water, the rigidity under sail of this cruiser takes her further and faster, with exceptional stability. It is a joy to have two helm stations, a mainsail arch and a huge swim platform on a sailing yacht this size. Underway, she is nimble and fast, easy to sail shorthanded but with a large enough cockpit to accommodate bigger crews.
For the Italian design team, the challenge was to multiply the living spaces in the salon and offer greater privacy in the owner cabin, while maintaining the visual perspective offered in previous versions.
The new L-shaped galley optimizes seating space in the salon, allowing up to eight people to sit around the table.
The chart table has been redesigned. Practical and effective, it folds away to leave more room in the salon. Designed to suit a variety of sailing programs and increasingly different lifestyles on board, the Oceanis 38.1 is available respectively in 6 versions with various layouts: number of cabins and bathrooms, modularity of the saloon, choice of galley, storage capacity, etc.
Now accessible by a double door, the owner cabin offers wonderful privacy. This new separate space has a pleasant forward view of the boat when the doors are open.
