The Beneteau Oceanis 38 created a buzz the industry hasn’t experienced for some time. At the core of all this excitement was her level of customization unheard of in a yacht this size. She could be configured as the ideal daysailer, weekender or a full-on cruiser, depending on the needs of her owner. In her daysailer guise, the 38 features open, uncluttered spaces inside and out. A two-person berth is located far forward with plenty of storage space aft.
Should you be the more adventurous type, the 38 can be the weekender of your dreams. Options of two or three cabins, shower and fitted galley offer loads of flexibility for your next long weekend.
And if you’re the type who feels the need to challenge your sea craft with a personal sailing odyssey, once again, the 38 is up to the challenge. Her cruiser version can include two or three fitted cabins, a large galley, mainsail arch, helmsman seats and swim platform.
No matter what configuration you choose, every 38 features twin rudders, a continuous full-length chine and a deep draft T-shaped keel for maximum performance with minimum heel. This standard equipment along with her clean, sensible sail plan and easy, single-handed sailing characteristics makes her the boat that fits you, not the other way around.
