31 Overview

31 Overview

The Beneteau Oceanis 31 is the beautiful baby sister with a big personality.  Big on performance, the 31 combines elegance with efficiency for maximum cruising pleasure.

World renowned designers Nauta focused on ensuring the 31-footer felt a whole lot bigger, through their intelligent and creative use of space and light.

Their skill was rewarded with the prestigious European Yacht of the Year title in the Family Cruiser category, the year she was launched.

It’s amazing what Beneteau’s yacht designers pack into 31 feet. The ergonomic and surprisingly large cockpit makes maximum use of space. Seats extend the full length of the cockpit so you can nap or entertain, and still have room to manoeuvre around the standard 35-inch wheel.

And this cracking little yacht sure packs some power. Both the main and the 105-percent genoa (with Profurl furler) are easy to handle but powerful enough to move the boat in lighter winds.

The 31 features Beneteau’s innovative hatch storage system where the Lexan hatch slides forward and then the weatherboard slides away as well, so you won’t need to find new storage space.

And since the 31 carries her beam well aft, there is plenty of room for Beneteau’s unique lifting liferaft locker on port and good sized lazarette storage on starboard.

You’ll enjoy an easy descent into an area that is startlingly spacious; the headroom is more than six feet is some places. The creative use of lighting and hatches in the coachroof allows sunlight to penetrate and flood the saloon, giving it a buttery glow.

The Beneteau 31 can sleep a family of four, and you’ll enjoy some well-earned rest on high quality mattresses in both the aft cabin on the port side, and V berth cabin. A small portal facing astern enhances the aft cabin port side.

The dinette converts into a full-size dining table easily and efficiently, and the galley is fully visible from the saloon, so you can be chef for the night and still be part of the action.

The stylish L-shaped galley boasts a gimballed two-burner stove, a 110 volt microwave oven underneath, an ice-box with 12 volt refrigerator accessed by a top hatch and a two basin stainless steel sink. Oh – and the storage! Every cabin has a wardrobe.

Reviews

“When the time comes to set sail, few boats offer such simplicity. The Neil Pryde Lazy Bag keeps the classic mainsail tucked away, just as the roller furler encases the 105-percent headsail. All lines lead back to the cockpit, controlled by a row of rope clutches bolted to the cabintop on the port side. The best part of the arrangement, at least aboard this boat, is the absence of in-mast or in-boom furling that might jam. There’s nothing fancy here. Nothing complicated. As the wise men say, when at sea, keep it simple.”
Sailing Magazine

“In terms of handling, the design gives a boat which doesn’t slam at sea, that points upwind remarkable closely, holds a steady course downwind, and if you are too close-hauled and getting overpowered, she lets you know gently but firmly. David confirms she has very few vices.”

Anglia Afloat

“A small yacht with big-boat features.”
That’s how one of the Beneteau staff summed up the Oceanis 31 when he showed it to me, and he’s right.

The baby of the Oceanis cruising range, this boat has been designed by renowned naval architect Finot-Conq and interior designer Nauta Design and has most of the same features as the Oceanis 37, but obviously packed into a shorter boat with a correspondingly lower price tag.
