Beneteau’s new 37-footer capitalizes on the innovations of the seventh generation of Oceanis Cruisers, which it completes The Oceanis 37.1 is the eighth model launched since 2017 and it has all the line’s hallmarks and offers more sustainable eco-friendly sailing.
The outdoor space is very open, 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 performances.
To retain easy handling shorthanded, all the rigging is brought back to the two aft winches. Only the halyards remain grouped around the coach roof. All the instruments, including a 7-inch plotter can be found on the starboard helm console.
The Oceanis 37.1 cruiser’s volume is remarkable. The generous space in the saloon is nearly as large as a 40-footer. The saloon is offset to port with a sofa for relaxing and a comfortable table for six, facing the lengthwise galley. There are four interior versions: two cabins/one head, two cabins/one head/shower, three cabins/one head, and three cabins/two heads.
The fore cabin has a breathtaking view of the horizon through two large portholes integrated in the hull side. In the two-bathroom version, the bed is positioned against the starboard hull and is of generous proportions. Comfort at the stern is optimal. In the standard version, there is a king-size double bed and a huge sail locker can be accessed from inside or out.
INTELLIGENT SUSTAINABLE DESIGN
In the standard version with a self-tacking jib, we have focused on making things easier, while sailors who enjoy lively boats will love the First Line version with the square-top mainsail and Genoa.
Iroko is an African wood that successfully replaces teak, Made with a new assembly process, called Iro-Deck, perfected by BENETEAU, we use it for the cockpit decking. It provides a uniform colour, excellent sustainability and rules out the risk of cracks in solid wood decks.
Available with Electric Engine Power
The Oceanis 37.1 is available with an electric engine with a 12 kW pod and 10 kilowatt-hour batteries. This allows a cruising programme on inland waterways where silent carbon-free sailing is popular.
