Sleeker, lighter, with more sail area and more volume in the bow for the master cabin than its predecessor, the new Oceanis 34.1 sets a new standard of excellence for sailing yachts in the 35-foot range, a stunning combination of style, spirit, and comfort. From the drawing board of famed naval architect Mark Lombard, she is an embodiment of modern hull design, and the collaboration with Nauta Design for the deck and interior layouts has produced a yacht of such graceful proportions and irreproachable uses of spaces and volumes that it might best be described with one word: perfect.
Life on board with family or friends has always been the core focus of all Oceanis designs, and the Oceanis 34.1 is the perfect example of this approach, providing the promise of safe cruising experiences aboard a boat that is easy to handle no matter who is aboard. Select the standard equipment (Easy Sail) for basic navigation: a conventional 334 sq/ft mainsail and 197 sq/ft self- tacking jib. The perfect configuration for doublehanded sailing, or when enjoying the boat with an inexperienced crew. An optional in-mast furling system is also available. More experienced sailors will opt for the upgraded rigging packs which include a bowsprit for downwind sails, extra winches and a 26m² furling genoa for longer cruises.
Even a cursory glance at the renderings reveals that La Rochelle-based architect Mark Lombard has surpassed himself once again, with this flared hull design and long chine running aft that provide greater interior spaces yet guarantee a high-quality cruising experience. These choices give the 7th generation of Oceanis yachts a strong visual identity that downloads itself to the experience of actually being under sail. Narrow waterline entries, a lower angle of heel and a hull that rests on the chine s will always deliver unrivalled comfort and stability on the water.
True to their reputation of excellence, the NAUTA Design firm have delivered an absolutely unique design concept for this generation of Oceanis. The distinctive style is instantly recognizable, from the general feel down to the smallest details. The layouts prioritize comfort, ease of use and movement, and always capitalize on the power of light.
In both versions, the interiors are bright and airy, with four deck hatches and four hull portholes guaranteeing loads of natural light and ventilation throughout the cabin. The starboard L-shaped galley, the head compartment to port, the large full-beam salon with two sofas and a large table for convivial dining ensure maximum cruising comfort for up to 8 passengers. In addition to the cabins, there are 2 single berths, one of which is cleverly tucked under the folding chart table.
