Sailing World 2014 Boat of the Year: The NEW J/88 from J/Boats
December 19, 2013

Oceanis 38 takes top honors in “Best Boats 2014” contest.  SAIL magazine just announced winners of its “Best Boats 2014” contest, and Beneteau’s new Oceanis 38 received top honors for “Best Boat” in the 31 to 40-foot monohull category.

The new Oceanis 38 with the standard white hull.  She shines no matter what color she is.


Norweigan sailing magazine have been one of the first to test the brand new Beneteau Oceanis 38, and here’s what they had to say.

Sail Magazine, as some of the first journalists in the world, yesterday sailed the new Beneteau Oceanis 38.  It was a positive meeting – complete with eyebrows that were more elevated than usual.

The eyebrows jumped in the air when yours truly went below deck in the new Oceanis 38. The tradition we know so well from sailboats has been challenged here,  with the Oceanis 38 offering a large, open boat below deck. There are large expanses of glass in the ship’s side that provides proper light and great views to the outside of boat and the Scots hung suitcases to what you have with you luggage.
