“Small, yet oh so big !”

Championing ever more innovative boats for everyone is definitely Beneteau’s hallmark, and in this respect the new Oceanis 30.1 holds its promises across the board. The smallest yacht in Beneteau’s cruising range boasts trailability, incredible living space for her size and focuses on simplicity, yet she is as stylish and beautiful as ever. There’s a good chance that she will rank ‘best in class’ throughout her career. She will be unveiled in all her splendour at upcoming Boot Düsseldorf 2019.

Although it is rare to start with size when presenting boats, the new Oceanis 30.1 is an excep-tion. Her design is based on the balance between reducing the boat’s size and increasing the deck and interior space by precious centimetres, which really make the difference in terms of living space and comfort.
