The Oceanis 46.1 has been gaining praise internationally since the premiere at last year’s Sydney International Boat Show. Here are the judges’ comments on why the Oceanis 46.1 was chosen as Family Cruiser of the year:

“With distinctively new hull lines and vast amounts of space in the cockpit as well as down below, she marks a big step forward in the market. Designed by Finot-Conq, the Oceanis 46.1 found early praise in independent sea trials for her nicely balanced twin rudder system, easy handling and agile performance.

The Oceanis 46.1 has more sail area, thus has even better sailing characteristics thanks to a finely balanced rig geometry and successful lift distribution. Below deck she offers up to ten berths in five cabins. The boat is highly customisable, modern and has an appealing design.”
