Her Finot-Conq design features a distinctive stepped hull that not only delivers extra performance but also opens up much more usable space. You’ll feel like you’re aboard at least a 49 footer! An efficient deck plan makes expert handling almost second nature to most sailors while providing a safe environment on deck even in less than ideal weather. A furling mast, self-tailing jib and easy access to halyards and sheets from each of her helm stations make short or single-handed sailing a strong possibility in your future!

Darkness has been banished from the 46.1. Below deck, she is all space and natural light. Her Nauta designed interior presents an abundance of large windows and skylights. Her master suite is worthy of a much larger yacht and features its own head with a separate shower room. Going back topside, you’ll find a spacious cockpit with a large table that can accommodate eight along with two reclining sun loungers on either side of the companionway that can be easily moved to the foredeck.

If you’re a sailor who appreciates the style and substance of a well-balanced yacht, the Oceanis 46.1 is the perfect marriage of performance, style, and space. This unique sailboat boasts a variety of options to enhance your comfort, style and equipment to match your adventures.

See the official launch of Beneteau’s New Oceanis 46.1 at the Newport International Boat Show, September 13-16 and discover what balance is all about. Until then, you can learn more about her at https://www.beneteaulife.com/sail/oceanis/#oceanis461
