The new 7th generation Oceanis 34.1
Own your new 7th generation Oceanis

Sleeker, lighter, with more sail area, and more space in the bow than its predecessor for the owner's cabin, the Oceanis 34.1 promises unforgettable days out on the water.

This stunning new yacht by Beneteau is the very latest in the Oceanis range. Since they debuted in 1976 the Beneteau Oceanis has been the world's most popular brand of cruising yacht.

The 34.1 is everything we hoped for and more as our offering in this size range. She has timeless looks, the very latest in performance hull design by Marc Lombard, the interior and deck volume of a yacht much larger than her size suggests and many options to tailor the boat to suit each owner's requirements perfectly.

Once again, Marc Lombard and NAUTA Design have combined their efforts to produce a unique design concept, true to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis range.

Key features:

  • Spacious interior for comfortable living
  • Sleek design and cutting-edge technology
  • Ideal for coastal cruising and beyond
  • Easy to sail shorthanded

Full specs, details, and gallery are on website.

The new Excess 11
One of a kind

Beautiful, simple, light - EXCESS 11 is made for life on board. Perfect for weekend cruising or long-distance travel, she was designed with one objective... to create a real cruising catamaran capable of taking you anywhere you dare to go.

Inspired by racing and built for cruising, her sporty rig offers an advantageous aspect ratio that promises exciting sailing. The unique flared hull design delivers space and comfort normally only found in a much bigger boat.

Our latest Excess 11 has just arrived in Sydney, is being commissioned now and she'll be ready to sail very soon - no need to wait!

Full specs, details, and gallery are here on our website.
