OCEANIS LEGEND | CHAPTER 7
When the very first Oceanis set sail in 1986, it was hard to imagine that it would give rise to a legend that would set the standard in
international cruising. Met with unwavering success for over thirty years, the Oceanis is comfortable, easy to handle and sail. At sea or
at anchor, there is no contest; she withstands all weather and all points of sail! The seventh generation offers enhanced balance, elegance, comfort and performance, giving a new lease of life to this legendary sailing yacht.
The Oceanis 30.1 is easy to sail but lively to helm and promises new experiences and thrills. This robust little smart cruiser is small enough to trail, opening up endless possibilities for sailing on lakes and rivers, as well as coastal sailing and high sea adventures. With unbeatable living space for its size and a focus on simplicity of use, the smallest model of the cruising range is nevertheless stylish, and fast. Getting-away takes on a whole new meaning.
MASSIMO GINO – Nauta Design:
“Some details are really amazing in this project, especially if we think of her size. The aft platform is very comfortable and big. The shape of the deck on either side of the companionway has been angled for better use of the deck hatches, but it also looks very elegant . The interior spaces are strikingly large and high for a 30’, and when you
enter the shower room you feel like you are on a much bigger yacht. The indirect lighting, with rope lights on either side creates a stylish yet welcoming atmosphere inside.”
PASCAL CONQ – Architect:
“Although the Oceanis 30.1 has a sleek well proportioned profile, the features that set her apart are her lengthened rigging and the highly
dynamic proportions of her square-top mainsail, not to mention an incredibly large cockpit opening onto the sea, beautiful interior volumes and a large forward cabin. CFD studies were used to optimize the hull, resulting in a very stable bottom of
moderate beam, without additional drag. Her twin rudders render her precise and very responsive, making it virtually impossible to lose control.”
SMART – With the swing keel and rotating mast version, she can sail
along canals and rivers to reach her sailing grounds.
On the Oceanis 30.1, sailors get to choose between a tiller on double rudders for anyone seeking thrills or from the world of dinghy sailing, or twin steering wheels for anyone who prefers space and comfort!
COMFORT – The double steering wheel layout results in a wonderfully large cockpit.
As we know that the adventure continues at anchor, on either side of the wide fold-away table are two long benches, which comfortably seat up to six guests. The cockpit opens onto the sea with a swim platform.
The Oceanis 30.1 sets herself apart from other boats of her size, thanks to a few extra inches won in strategic places, which make movement below more comfortable. By making the soles part of the boat’s structure, headroom has been increased to 6.9 ft midship and 6.1 ft in the two cabins. The two good-sized double cabins each have berths running lengthwise and an open entryway making them feel particularly spacious. The two benches in the saloon provide an additional place for two extra berths.
PERFORMANCE – For performance, the Oceanis 30.1 has a square-top mainsail, a large overlapping genoa, a furling code zero and an asymmetric spinnaker.
The Finot-Conq plan has met the double challenge of power and simple navigation. With her slender bow, optimized weight, and square-top mainsail, she performs well in all points of sail. For beginners or for short-handed sailing, the self-tacking jib and the single winch make her easy to handle.
