24 Sep 2012 | Beneteau’s new brace of Oceanis cruisers, the 41 and the 45, epitomize contemporary yacht design, the emphasis firmly on the user-friendly, but not at the expense of performance, reports KEVIN GREEN
Sitting onboard the Oceanis 45 chatting to designer Pascal Conq, the 41 moored alongside, proved the best way to appreciate these two new releases from European giant Beneteau.
“A key point is the mast now being in line with the keel, which maximises the centre of effort on these boats,” explained Pascal. This has also allowed a more even spread of the sail area across the hull, he added. Clearly there is no substitute for an interview with the designer when it comes to reviewing sailboats.
