New First 36 - BRIDGING THE GAP

New First 36 - BRIDGING THE GAP

BRIDGING THE GAP:

THE BRAND NEW BENETEAU FIRST 36

The BENETEAU First 36 has a mission to bridge the gap between high-tech development in the world of racing and mainstream racer-cruisers. To be specific, even the standard version of First 36 will fully plane in a moderate breeze.
However, this by itself was not the main challenge for the design and production teams. For 40 years, the Firsts were successfully hitting the elusive sweet spot between comfort, performance, utility, elegance, high-tech construction, and reasonable price. The First 36 is no different.

 

New First 36

Ključni pokazatelji:

  • Very low displacement that brings the experience of planning into the hands of amateur sailors
  • Carefully designed deck layout for short-handed and fully crewed racing
  • Practical three-cabin interior with innovative details for cruising

DESIGNED BY SAILORS FOR SAILORS 
_________________________________________________________________________________

The design team is coordinated by the experienced hand of Kristian Hajnšek, CTO of Seascape, who works closely with the team at BENETEAU to bring race-grade construction technologies into the segment of production racer-cruisers. On top of this hugely experienced team, we added an elite international group of designers; all of them are passionate sailors in their own right.

Naval architect: Samuel Manuard

He is currently the hottest name in offshore racing, where his designs are winning Mini, Class 40, and IMOCA 60 classes. He is also the designer of the new First and First SE from 14ft to 27ft.

Structural engineering: Pure Design&Engineering

The team from New Zealand was in charge of engineering at some of the most extreme projects in the world of extreme sailing: TP52s, AC75, AC72, IMOCA 60s, and Club Swan, as well as high-end production yachts.

Design: Lorenzo Argento

First 36 follows the same design language of her larger sister – First Yacht 53 – building on the timeless aesthetic of Lorenzo's work, most notably seen on the Wally and Brenta yachts.

Innovation and research: Gigodesign

This industrial design studio's design research and innovation insights with multiple Red Dot awards were essential in locking in and developing innovation opportunities.

THE MODERN SAILING EXPERIENCE

Due to the easily achievable performance potential of the new BENETEAU First 36, we expect her to be a weapon for club handicap racing. Therefore, during the design process, the team spent numerous iterations seeking a balance between an easily planing hull and upwind performance.

The First 36 is optimised for short-handed sailing, making her perfect for the ever-more-popular short-handed adventure distance races. Her very high sail area/displacement coefficient and balanced nautical design make her a top performer as a club-racer, a safe and fun family cruiser, or simply a thrilling daysailer.

SAILING FUNCTIONALITY

Positioning six winches, steering wheels, and other deck gear was thoroughly tested on several mock-ups and a full-scale testbed sailboat to enable the sailing experience promised on the previous page. Details like an offshore hatch on the foredeck or removable cockpit benches show the priority of sailing functionality over style used throughout the design process.
Standard aluminium rig and cast iron keel were chosen to keep the boat accessible. Yet, Sam Manuard brought his experience and focused on perfecting the shape and design of these two key ingredients for a great sailing experience. The draft of 2,25 m was chosen as a compromise between performance and ease of use.

 

Cockpit - New First 36

RACING LAYOUT

In the racing layout, the wide and modern cockpit allows for different helm and trim positions, either for short-handed or fully-crewed sailing. In this setup, the table and bench extensions are removed, opening the working area in the cockpit.


A higher than average steering wheel position leaves enough room for the helmsman to move forward towards the mainsail winch when sailing shorthanded. The cockpit winches' positioning allows one or two crew members to sail with legs in and work the mainsail or primary winches in full crew mode. It also allows cross-sheeting of all sheets to the windward side. Harken, Ronstan, Spinlock and Antal deck gear were combined for performance.

 

CRUISING LAYOUT

When you remove your racing gear and take your family cruising or daysailing, the cockpit benches with cushions increase the seating area and add storage space and rope organisation. The cockpit table is big enough to seat a crew of six. Additionally, the design team developed an ultralight bathing platform to give sailors easy access to the water without affecting the boat's performance.

LARGEST LIVING SPACE IN ITS CLASS

The wide hull of the BENETEAU First 36 offers a spacious interior comparable to much larger predecessors. The new First 36 has about the same living volume as the legendary First 40.7.

Simple, comfortable and multi-purpose, the First 36 interior was developed around three-cabin cruising functionality. Its most notable feature is the large central fridge (with a removable cutting board), making this sailboat's galley the largest of her class. A corridor created together with the foldable and removable table helps sailors move around the saloon safely and offers stacking possibilities.

 

Going against the trend, the 36 features a full-sized navigation table. While vital to navigation, it is also a suitable home office. Two portlights in every room allow air flow and natural light, while sectional indirect lighting with a red racing option illuminates the boat at night. Three cabins with easily accessible full-sized double berths and innovative heads round up the features of this bright and spacious interior.

Introducing the new Oceanis 34.1

Introducing the new Oceanis 34.1

Sleeker, lighter, more sail area, more space in the bow for the owner's cabin (than its predecessor): the latest collaboration between Marc Lombard for naval architecture and NAUTA Design for the deck plan and layouts of the new Oceanis 34.1 is, quite simply, superb!

10.80m of pure generosity

One glance shows that the La Rochelle-based architect has surpassed himself with this flared hull design that provides greater interior space for a spacious cabin (fore) combined with a hull with a long chine going aft that ensures guests a high-quality cruising experience.

These architectural choices give this 7th generation of Oceanis yachts a strong identity that is equally remarkable when under sail - slender waterline entries, a lower angle of heel and a hull resting on the chine for greater comfort on the water.

A key player right from the start, the firm NAUTA Design has once again delivered an incomparable design concept for this generation of Oceanis yachts. A distinctive style, instantly recognisable even in the smallest details with layouts that prioritise comfort, user-friendliness, bright interiors and ease of movement.

 

New Oceanis 34.1 - Cockpit

 

Custom-designed deck, ballast and rigging

Life on board with family or friends new to sailing is the core focus of all new Oceanis designs. The Oceanis 34.1 is the perfect example of this approach, promising to provide safe cruising experiences aboard a boat that is easy to handle whoever is crewing it.

Simple navigation using standard equipment (Easy Sail): a conventional 31m" mainsail and 18m" selftacking jib. The perfect configuration for sailing as a duo, or for carrying an inexperienced crew. To keep manoeuvring with ropes to a strict minimum, there is an optional in-mast furling system.

More experienced recreational boaters will opt for rigging packs which include a stemhead for downwind sails, extra winches and a 26m" furling genoa for longer cruises.

With its regatta-style running rigging and Flatdeck genoa furling system, the First Line is firmly focused on Performance.

The bulb-free hydraulic lifting keel (1.25 m - 2.55 m), which produces hardly any drag, combined with the 35m2 square top mainsail maximises the hull's speed potential. Another advantage of the lifting keel is simple beaching of the boat making it easy to explore secluded creeks and anchorages.

New Oceanis 34.1 - Saloon

Onboard comfort, worthy of the greatest boats

The stylish, uncluttered deck plan has been specially designed to provide maximum comfort and safety when moving around the boat, taking the helm and for onboard living when at anchor. The ropes for the halyard and the furling system are forward of the cockpit while there is a winch on each side for the helmsman to set the foresails. The result is an uncluttered cockpit ideal for relaxation, with the lack of a backstay making it easy to get to the aft swim platform.

The design also includes two or three double cabins with head compartment. The 2-cabin version has a large head compartment to aft with a spacious separate shower and lots of closet space accessed both from the inside and via the cockpit benchseat.

The offer is further enhanced by a choice of elegant finishes in oak or walnut, perfectly complemented by a beautiful fabric selection with optional seat upholstery.

In both versions, the boat interiors are bright and airy. With its four deck hatches and four hull portholes, the Oceanis saloon has everything you need to get the most out of your cruising experience.

The starboard L-shaped galley, the head compartment to port, the large full-beam saloon with two sofas and a large table for convivial dining ensure maximum cruising comfort for the eight passengers. In addition to the cabins, there are two single berths, one of which is under the clever chart table with its folding top.

Loyal to the spirit of classic BENETEAU design for 35 years now, the Oceanis 34.1 is the versatile cruiser with a sleek contemporary silhouette that everyone's been waiting for!

Oceanis 54 Yacht Review

Oceanis 54 Yacht Review

The new Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54 shares a lot of DNA with the company’s First Yacht 53, introduced last year. The Oceanis Yacht 54, however, is both more luxurious and carries a slightly different rig for sailors who lean more toward cruising and entertaining than racing.

DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION

The hull and deck of the Oceanis Yacht 54 are both infused with a balsa core and an inner liner vacuum-infused to the hull in conventional Beneteau fashion. Less typically for Beneteau, a pair of aluminum beams runs the length of the boat beneath the cabin sole, adding support and rigidity.

The keel and its bulb are cast iron. The boat carries twin rudders on a pair of stainless steel stocks, and the cockpit is equipped with dual helm stations. Standard power is an 80hp saildrive, but our test boat came with the optional 110hp shaft drive and dripless coupling instead. Another option is Beneteau’s “Dock and Go” 360 saildrive and bow thruster system, to facilitate moving in and out of the tightest slips and marinas.

As always with Beneteau, the plumbing and distributed electrical system are neatly installed, and the boat meets all necessary CE and ISO 12215 standards. A Beneteau “Ship Control System” allows owners to monitor a wide range of onboard functions via a cell phone app, including lights, air conditioning, generator, and battery and water levels. Two different keels, standard and shoal, the latter drawing 6ft 7in, are available.

ON DECK

The deck is a long, wide, open space with plenty of lounging room for sunbathers. A low bulwark enclosing the side decks helps compensate for a shortage of grab points on the cabintop. Beneteau has brought back the cockpit arch (not part of the package aboard the First Yacht 53 with its greater emphasis on success on the racecourse) as a convenient mounting spot for the mainsheet, bimini and windshield. The mainsheet attaches at a single point without a traveler, but a double-ended German rig is available for more performance-minded skippers. There’s also the option of a boom-furling mainsail for those who want a more efficient sailplan than is possible with in-mast furling.

The transom opens electrically to expose a boarding platform and dinghy garage large enough for an 8ft inflatable, an elegant, straightforward solution for storing and launching the tender.

ACCOMMODATIONS

The interior is finished like a modern urban apartment, with flush-mounted cabinet doors, neutral colors and an expansive feel. It’s attractive in the European style and will be a fine place for entertaining guests. The joinery is of Alpi laminate wood with a choice of either a mahogany finish, like on our test boat, or a lighter oak color.

We sailed the three-cabin, two-head version. However, a three-head version is also available, as is a charter model with a small cabin in the forepeak for a hired captain. Tall fiddles on all countertops and strong grab rails alongside the companionway and overhead serve as good handholds. The headroom in the saloon is well over 6ft.

The C-shaped galley amidships has an apartment-size fridge plus a freezer. A dishwasher is available as an option. The forward-facing nav table just aft of the owner’s cabin in the bow employs the end of the port-side settee as a seat. It’s an unusual layout that seems better suited to relaxation than work, but makes sense in this era of electronic navigation. As is typically the case with Beneteau, the Oceanis Yacht 54 is available with a long list of options that includes everything from a genset and air conditioning to stereo systems and upholstery choices.

UNDER SAIL

With a perfect 12-18 knot breeze in Annapolis, close-reaching under standard sails produced a satisfying 9 knots of boatspeed in fairly smooth water. Unrolling a Code 0 affixed to the boat’s fixed bowsprit added a knot. While it may not technically be a racer, the Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54 does move right along. A comparably sized cruising catamaran couldn’t have done any better.

Tacking through slightly less than 90 degrees was uneventful and effortless with the help of our test boat’s big electric winches. There was a slight amount of weather helm, just enough to provide the necessary feedback when sailing hard on the wind, and the big boat responded instantly to the wheel. Beneteau has incorporated a nice set of foot braces in the cockpit and at both helm stations, a welcome touch when the boat is on its ear. There’s nothing like twin rudders for maintaining a firm grip on the water in heavier conditions.

The nearly flush deck made for excellent sight lines in all directions, and the overall motion was an easy, comforting one in a seaway. This is the kind of boat that will be well suited for everything from long-distance cruising to daysailing with children. Sail controls were also exemplary throughout. The in-mast furling main and roller-furling jibs worked perfectly, making shorthanded sailing a simple matter.

UNDER POWER

Motoring on the Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54 is a non-event, as it should be on any modern sailing vessel. Full throttle drives the boat at nearly 10 knots, while a comfortable cruise setting of 2,400 rpm produced a quiet 9 knots. Stopping and backing are normal. The turning circle is tight, about one boatlength, and helm control is positive and simple. That said, a bow thruster is inevitably a good idea aboard any boat this size given the crowded nature of today’s harbor facilities.

CONCLUSION

The Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54 is a superbly capable cruiser that will check a lot of boxes for a lot of sailors. Think summers in New England, spring and fall on the Chesapeake and an offshore passage to the Caribbean for a winter in the islands—that or trips from Southern California to Mexico and back. Whatever the locale, the Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54 will serve as an outstanding modern sailing home where owners can entertain friends, family or clients in style.
