With a stemhead and her hard-chine hull and well-proportioned sides and coachroof, the Oceanis 30.1 looks unashamedly like a small yacht. The Finot-Conq plan has met the double challenge of power and simple navigation. With her slender bow, optimized weight, and square-top mainsail, she performs well in all points of sail. For beginners or for short-handed sailing, the self-tacking jib and the single winch make her easy to handle. For performance, the Oceanis 30.1 has a large overlapping genoa, a furling code zero and an asymmetric spinnaker. Aft, a step affords access to the sea and can be supplemented by a small lifting platform.
With a few extra inches won in strategic places, the Oceanis 30.1 differs from other boats, thanks to a headspace of 6.5 ft in all the places inside where it is comfortable to stand. The two good-sized double cabins each have berths running lengthwise and an open entryway making them feel particularly spacious. The two benches in the salon provide an additional place for two extra berths. The large shower room is divided into a marine toilet on one side and shower and washbasin on the other. At the foot of the gently sloping companionway, the L-shaped galley has top and bottom storage, a 20 US Gal refrigerator and a real oven under the gas hob.
With unbeatable living space for its size and a focus on simplicity of use, the smallest model of the cruising range is nevertheless stylish, and fast, with a highly competitive ready-to-sail price.
With an overall size of under 30 X 10 ft and a weight of less than 8,000 lbs, the Oceanis 30.1 can be trailered by road by a professional, without the issues of an extra-wide load. In its lifting keel and rotating mast version, the cruiser can sail along canals and rivers to its sailing grounds.
Choice of Helm
On the Oceanis 30.1, sailors get to choose between a tiller on double rudders for anyone seeking a few thrills or from the world of dinghy sailing, or twin steering wheels for anyone who prefers space and comfort!
The double steering wheel layout results in a wonderfully big cockpit. On either side of the large fold-away table are two large benches, which comfortably seat up to six guests.
