Sleeker, lighter, more sail area, more space in the bow for the owner's cabin (than its predecessor): the latest collaboration between Marc Lombard for naval architecture and NAUTA Design for the deck plan and layouts of the new Oceanis 34.1 is, quite simply, superb!

10.80m of pure generosity

One glance shows that the La Rochelle-based architect has surpassed himself with this flared hull design that provides greater interior space for a spacious cabin (fore) combined with a hull with a long chine going aft that ensures guests a high-quality cruising experience.

These architectural choices give this 7th generation of Oceanis yachts a strong identity that is equally remarkable when under sail - slender waterline entries, a lower angle of heel and a hull resting on the chine for greater comfort on the water.

A key player right from the start, the firm NAUTA Design has once again delivered an incomparable design concept for this generation of Oceanis yachts. A distinctive style, instantly recognisable even in the smallest details with layouts that prioritise comfort, user-friendliness, bright interiors and ease of movement.

Custom-designed deck, ballast and rigging

Life on board with family or friends new to sailing is the core focus of all new Oceanis designs. The Oceanis 34.1 is the perfect example of this approach, promising to provide safe cruising experiences aboard a boat that is easy to handle whoever is crewing it.

Simple navigation using standard equipment (Easy Sail): a conventional 31m" mainsail and 18m" selftacking jib. The perfect configuration for sailing as a duo, or for carrying an inexperienced crew. To keep manoeuvring with ropes to a strict minimum, there is an optional in-mast furling system.

More experienced recreational boaters will opt for rigging packs which include a stemhead for downwind sails, extra winches and a 26m" furling genoa for longer cruises.

With its regatta-style running rigging and Flatdeck genoa furling system, the First Line is firmly focused on Performance.

The bulb-free hydraulic lifting keel (1.25 m - 2.55 m), which produces hardly any drag, combined with the 35m2 square top mainsail maximises the hull's speed potential. Another advantage of the lifting keel is simple beaching of the boat making it easy to explore secluded creeks and anchorages.

Onboard comfort, worthy of the greatest boats

The stylish, uncluttered deck plan has been specially designed to provide maximum comfort and safety when moving around the boat, taking the helm and for onboard living when at anchor. The ropes for the halyard and the furling system are forward of the cockpit while there is a winch on each side for the helmsman to set the foresails. The result is an uncluttered cockpit ideal for relaxation, with the lack of a backstay making it easy to get to the aft swim platform.

The design also includes two or three double cabins with head compartment. The 2-cabin version has a large head compartment to aft with a spacious separate shower and lots of closet space accessed both from the inside and via the cockpit benchseat.

The offer is further enhanced by a choice of elegant finishes in oak or walnut, perfectly complemented by a beautiful fabric selection with optional seat upholstery.

In both versions, the boat interiors are bright and airy. With its four deck hatches and four hull portholes, the Oceanis saloon has everything you need to get the most out of your cruising experience.

The starboard L-shaped galley, the head compartment to port, the large full-beam saloon with two sofas and a large table for convivial dining ensure maximum cruising comfort for the eight passengers. In addition to the cabins, there are two single berths, one of which is under the clever chart table with its folding top.

Loyal to the spirit of classic BENETEAU design for 35 years now, the Oceanis 34.1 is the versatile cruiser with a sleek contemporary silhouette that everyone's been waiting for!
