Bruce Hastie, Ancasta’s Beneteau Sails Brand Manager has come back from the Paris Boat Show and told us that the Oceanis 41 Express is going to be a very popular model for 2015!
“I think the one to look out for next year is most definitely the Beneteau Oceanis 41 Express. This exceptional model very neatly bridges the gap between the Beneteau First and the Oceanis range. An incredibly exciting development on the traditional Oceanis 41, the Express includes a taller mast giving a 10% overall increase in sail area, a German main sheet system with additional winches, uprated Elvstrom sails and a cascade backstay system. The cockpit has been better equipped with additional Harken winches and a genoa traveller adjustment from the cockpit is now offered as standard. With her sporty new interior, the Oceanis 41 Express is aimed at those clients looking for additional performance, and when she was launched at the Paris Boat Show 2014, proved to be extremely popular amongst existing Beneteau owners and indeed, anyone looking for a competitively priced sailing boat of her size, from the renowned Benteau brand.”
