MYS: Beneteau, Groupe Finot and Nauta really hit the numbers perfectly with the new Oceanis 41 & 45 and Berret with the Oceanis 48.
Beneteau’s new trio of Oceanis cruisers, the 41, 45 and 48, epitomises contemporary yacht design where the emphasis is user-friendly, but not at the expense of performance, with the 45 providing a good combination of luxury, price and power.

Having sailed all three of the new Oceanis yachts recently, my editor asked me, “which one would you choose?” That got me thinking. Money matters for most prospective buyers, so the six-figure difference in price between the 41 and 48 is significant, whereas it’s more than halved between the 41 and the 45. For sailors regularly doing offshore passages, the longer the waterline, the faster you can go and the more versatility the interior has, which means it can be chartered out or cope with large family gatherings.
