March 2013 By John Kretschmer
Designed with French flair and a mindful eye to easy sailing, this new Beneteau is ready for serious cruising
The new Beneteau Oceanis 48 blends fresh thinking, French design flare and, most importantly, proven Beneteau engineering. And judging from a personal survey last summer, when I observed a bevy of new Oceanis 48s in marinas all around the Mediterranean, the world’s largest sailboat consortium has done it again and launched another winner. And it’s easy to see why: The Oceanis 48 appeals on many levels and is clearly the look of sailing’s future.
The hull and deck, designed by the legendary team of Jean Berret and Oliver Racoupeau, emphasizes a well-balanced and stable hull form that performs well both on and off the wind. The comfortable cockpit provides easy access to the water and the large companionway and multitude of hatches create a natural flow of light and air below. The interior, designed by the Nauta Design Group, is available in a variety of arrangements and the appointments are beautifully executed. The Oceanis 48 blends the ergonomic advances stemming from multihull designs with the reassurance and the lively sailing characteristics that only a monohull can deliver.
