A more powerful sailboat than its predecessor
Begun in 2017 with the 51-footer, the renewal of the Oceanis range continues. Bénéteau presented the Oceanis 34.1 at the Grand Pavois 2021. The yacht replaces the 35.1. By taking up the spirit of the new range and working on the equipment and manufacturing, the teams at Bénéteau claim to have gained 500 kg compared to the Oceanis 35.1. The voluminous hull designed by Marc Lombard, combined with a larger sail plan – 49.3 m² in the standard version and 71.7 m² for the First Line Performance version – should give the boat superior performance. The boat is offered with three different types of ballast: a fixed keel with a 2-meter draft and 1,580 kg or a short keel at 1.50 meters, with an additional 280 kg; a lifting keel of 1,506 kg for a high draft of 1.25 meters and a low draft of 2.55 meters.
