Specifications

Following in the wake of her elder sister the Oceanis 46.1, this 40-foot cruiser, with  a new hull design by Marc Lombard , offers unrivaled  deck volume and interior space , with zero concessions to performance. The Oceanis 40.1 is  available in different layouts, drafts and rig options , adapting to the most demanding sailor’s cruising requirements and satisfying their need for comfort and pleasure under sail.

Exterior design

How can you enjoy life at anchor as much as while sailing? With the innovative flared hull design of the Oceanis 40.1, BENETEAU has broken new ground but made no concessions. The result is a hull that has true speed potential and is stiff under sail. Above the waterline, her deck plan and ultra-spacious interior by  Nauta Design  is unheard-of on a boat this size. You cannot help feeling that you are aboard a 45 foot cruiser!

Interior Design

With your choice of either a  walnut or white oak , the styling of the interior by Italian designer Nauta is remarkably bright and excels in the skillful arrangement of the living spaces. She is available with two, three, or four cabins, and a  C-shaped galley  to the starboard that offers an abundance of storage and a spacious countertop. On the port side, there is a large salon with a table, complete with a removable bench. A chart table at the foot of the companionway provides ample working space. Everything is modular, so that everyone can live the way they want and enjoy sailing wherever the wind takes them.

40 FEET OF SPACE!

The philosophy of the Oceanis 40.1 is to make sailing and mooring pleasurable. The strengths of this cruiser, studied in detail by the architect Marc Lombard and the BENETEAU design office, are unrivalled interior space, a huge deck plan, and the ability to clock up miles when you are cruising.

LIFE AT ANCHOR

The ergonomics and easy maneuvering in the cockpit make life onboard simple. Nothing interferes with the joy of life at anchor. Feel like splashing around the boat in an idyllic creek? The transom easily converts to an extensive swim platform, similar in size to the ones you find on the largest Oceanis cruising yachts. Having access to the sea is an integral part of life on a sailing yacht, and this model is one of a kind. 

SEEKING EXCITEMENT UNDER SAIL…

As there is no one way to sail, and because everyone takes their cruising at their own pace, the Oceanis 40.1 comes in several versions. Sailors keen on performance can choose the First Line Pack, with a taller mast and a deeper draft. Alternatively, the in-mast furling system and self-tacking jib will make maneuvering easier when shorthanded. A classic mast for a semi-full batten mainsail is also available.

HEAVENS ABOVE, SO MUCH SPACE!

The hatches and the many hull and coachroof portholes, two of which face towards the cockpit, fill the boat with natural light and ventilation, making her exceptionally bright. The Oceanis 40.1 comes in 4 different versions with two, three, and four cabins to accommodate everyone’s idea of a holiday on board. Couples and large families will feel at home. The owner version has a cabin with an ensuite shower and head, and a bed easily accessible from either side. The four-cabin layout has two forward berths with bunk beds.

Equipped With SEANAPPS

The easiest way to keep your boat safe and ready to cruise anytime.

The new Seanapps  app is the ultimate solution to help you indulge your passion for boating. With the touch of your finger, you can easily connect, monitor and order services for your boat – from routine maintenance, to requesting a wash or fuel or having us complete a repair.

Popular Cruising Yachts from 35 to 40 Feet Long Overall Their Physical Properties & Key Performance Indicators

Welcome to this ever-growing gallery of some of the most popular cruising yachts between 35 and 40 feet (10.7m to 12.2m) long overall.

Cruising Yachts featured on this page...

















































































Medium sized cruising yachts like these are often the sailboat of choice for short-handed crews, and if properly equipped and maintained, will take long offshore voyages in their stride.

Sailboats at the top of this size range, those above 12m long overall, will find that they are charged considerably more in marinas than those that fall just under 12m LOA. Something worth bearing in mind perhaps?

Best Blue Water Sailboats Under 40 Feet

19th jan 2023 by samantha wilson.

Rightboat logo

What is a blue water sailboat?

What to look for when choosing a cruising sailboat under 40 feet, what are the advantages of small blue water sailboats, what are the disadvantages of small sailboats.

  • Best blue water sailboat models under 40 Feet

The term blue water sailboat doesn’t refer to a specific style of boat in the same way that a ketch or schooner does. In fact, a blue water sailboat could be either of those and many more. But when we talk about blue water sailboats, they have shared characteristics that make them suitable for, you guessed it, blue water sailing. Making long, open sea voyages such as crossing the oceans requires a boat that is solidly-built and can tackle heavy seas and inclement weather conditions. Blue water sailboats are able to be self-sufficient and lived on for extended periods of time, and to offer safety and comfort.

In a previous guide we looked at the different types of sailboats , focusing on identifying them by their hull type, rigging and uses. In general, smaller blue water sailboats under 40 feet tend to be cutters , sloops or ketches . Catamarans and trimarans too are becoming increasingly popular as long cruising vessels, although these tend to be larger than 40 feet. In fact, while there are manufacturers producing some excellent, sturdy and compact blue water sailboats under 40 feet, they tend to be a minority and most ‘small’ sailboats designed for long-range cruising are usually above 50 feet. 

blue water sailing

So what other characteristics should you be looking for in a small ocean sailboat? 

Construction:

The material of the hull is probably the most crucial aspect, as it needs to be solidly built and able to withstand harsh seas as well as any collisions with floating objects. Hulls made from steel, strong fiberglass or carbon fiber tend to be the most popular. With a brand new sailboat you can be assured of a sound hull, however when buying a used sailboat under 40 feet the most important aspect is to ensure that the hull is strong and durable. 

The type of keel also makes a big difference, as deep V hulls with an encapsulated keel will make your boat less likely to capsize or lose its keel. Keel sailboats under 40 feet with skeg-hung rudders are considered the best small sailboats for open ocean cruising. While in the past it tended to only be monohull boats which were used for blue water sailing, there are now several manufacturers offering catamarans and trimarans which are strong enough to cross oceans. 

While the rig itself doesn’t necessarily denote whether a sailboat is more blue water worthy, it needs to be able to be manned by the number of crew on board as well as less crew if anyone is injured. The most important aspect is to think of the manageability of the rig. 

Ocean-going sailboats tend to have small cockpits to keep water out. While traditionally they used to have an aft cockpit there are more center cockpit blue water sailboats around these days. They need to have good drainage as well as offering the helmsman easy reach of the headsail, staysail and mainsail sheets.

Self-steering:

Whether you’re sailing solo or with a small crew, having the ability to set an auto-pilot is an important characteristic of a blue water boat. From tiredness to accidents or illness, there might come a time when you need to set the autopilot when under power or windvane when under sail. 

A compact cabin, galley and head with plenty of handholds and safe storage are vital to spending long stretches of time at sea. There needs to be enough space to ensure you are able to be self-sufficient for long periods of time. This includes everything from provisions to safety equipment , power systems, water makers, fuel storage and two anchors. 

Ability to heave-to:

The act of heaving-to involves pointing the bow into the wind and fixing the helm and sail positions. This essentially stops the boat in the water and is a hugely important maneuver during storms to prevent capsizing and allows the crew to take shelter inside. Some sailboats are more able to perform this than others. 

Having a way to communicate an emergency is vital, and your blue water sailboat should have a satellite phone and radio installed. A radio will allow you to connect with passing vessels, while the satellite phone is your only means of true contact with land. On deck, safety is paramount, and additions such as granny bars by the mast, safety rails and of course a harness mean you’ll be staying on board in lively conditions. 

Ability to Store or Make Water:

Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink is not a phrase any sailor wants to utter. So it’s imperative that your sailboat has enough storage capacity for long voyages, as well as the ability to make fresh water for drinking and washing in. Consider that two people on a three week voyage will require around 50 gallons of fresh water (allowing for a 20% contingency). Space – and weight considerations - is always a premium on small sailboats, so you need to make sure there are enough water tanks. You’ll also want a water maker which are powered by motors and generators. AC water makers can produce around 20 gallons a day, while DC water makers which use a lot less power, produce around 12 gallons of water a day.

Good Navigation Systems:

Ok, we’re going to say how important navigation systems are on your boat, and that’s true, but in fact you don’t want to reply on electronic navigation systems alone if you’re out in the middle of the deep blue. Having paper charts on board (in digital format preferably to save on space in a small boat) and knowing how to navigate using them is imperative. 

small sailing yacht

There are thousands of models of liveaboard sailboats under 40 feet on the market, but certainly not all of them are suitable for crossing oceans. We’ve seen the general characteristics of what to look for when choosing a blue water sailboat, but what are the pros and cons of a smaller boat versus a larger model?

Affordability:

Smaller tends to mean cheaper and so affordability is a major factor when buying a blue water sailboat . Whether you’re in the market for a new or used blue water sailboat under 40 feet, there are some excellent deals to be found. It means that long-held dream of sailing across the world can happen now, rather than saving for years. The other bonus is that smaller, simpler pocket cruisers will be cheaper and easier to maintain. 

Easier to Sail:

The simpler the rig and the less systems on board the easier the boat will be to sail (and to care for). You’ll need a smaller crew meaning cruising boats under 40 feet tend to be popular with couples and solo sailors. 

Less Spacious:

It goes without saying that smaller boats have less space. While manufacturers are finding ever-more ingenious ways to equip small sailboats with everything their larger counterparts have – and there are some clever ways you can maximize storage space in a boat – realistically space will be at a premium, meaning the number of crew and the amount of comforts you can have on board will need to be minimal.

They Tend to be Slower:

As a general rule, the smaller the sailboat, the slower it will be. While this isn’t always a bad thing if you’re in no hurry to get anywhere, it’s worth considering that out-running bad weather can be trickier in a small boat. 

Less comfortable:

A smaller boat can make for a less comfortable ride, especially in bigger seas.

Key Features To Look For In A Bluewater Sailboat

40 feet sailboat

There are several key features to consider that will ensure your safety, comfort, and enjoyment while cruising on a bluewater sailboat:

Prefer the most stable size of at least 30-35 feet in length

A bluewater sailboat should be at least 30-35 feet in length to safely traverse common wavelengths in the open ocean. It should also be self-righting or extremely seaworthy like a large catamaran.

Opt for boats with a wide beam and a deep draft. Ideally, boats with full keels are also best for bluewater sailing.

If you're looking for the best size sailboat for coastal cruising, here's how you should know the perfect size that fits your needs.

Choose one with a protected helm and accommodation

A protected and enclosed helm helps ensure safety and comfort when sailing in inclement weather. Accommodations below should also be well-protected from the elements and provide ample storage for provisions and gear.

Pick one with sturdy and reliable rigging and sails

Try to look for a boat with a cutter or ketch rig for versatility in different wind conditions. A roller furling system for the headsail is also recommended for ease of use.

Look for one with reliable anchoring and mooring

Perhaps consider a boat with a windlass and a minimum of 45 fathoms of ⅜in chain, plus a modern anchor weighing in at a minimum of 55lb.

Opt for the most self-sufficient bluewater sailboat

Consider going for a boat with ample tankage for fuel and water, as well as a reliable means of generating power such as solar panels or a wind turbine. A watermaker is also a valuable addition for long-term cruising.

It must be seaworthy and reliable

Go for boats that are built to withstand the rigors of bluewater sailing . A strong and durable hull, high-quality materials, and a well-designed layout are all indicators of a seaworthy vessel.

A testament to their quality and popularity is the 32-year production run that they enjoyed. Under power, you can rely on the Westerbeke Diesel 4-107 to get you in and out of marinas and moorings. B40 owners really like the wide side decks which means no squeezing under the shrouds when you are moving forward and aft. This vessel is the port-side dinette version. There are 3 berths with room to sleep 5. The Bermuda 40 Mark III Yawl has lots of space and has the amenities necessary for cruising by a couple or small family. It would even make a nice liveaboard! Don't miss out on your opportunity to own this classic beauty! Reason for selling is not using it enough.

Condor 40 Ocean Racing Trimaran Sailboat

Condor 40 Ocean Racing Trimaran Sailboat

Boca Raton, Florida

40' Condor Racing Trimarin. Built in 1988, this vessel sat way up the Miami River for 10 years, so it's had very little use. Extremely fast, very strong and stable. Great sails and equipment. Main, 110% Genoa (on roller-furler), Spinnaker Twin 4-Stroke 9.9 outboards with lift-brackets mounted on custom aluminum transom, Custom aluminum radar arch on stern, custom Edison wheel and pedestal with fixed rudder - (original kick-up rudder included), Stainless Steel Dodger, auto-pilot, GPS, VHF, some new rigging with Sta-Lok fittings, new main and spare halyards and other new lines. Self Tailing Winches, New canvas and oak below, porta-potti. Slab Reefing, Lazy Jacks, Stax-Packer, 2 Stainless Anchor mounts, All lines lead to cockpit for Cockpit Control, Boom Vang, Preventers, etc. 2 large hatches replace the original small inspection ports in each Ama (4 hatches - 2 in each hull) - making huge interior storage space in each hull - These hatches are large enough to allow a sailor to get down below into each Ama. The original hulls did not have this option. You can store sails, fenders, lines, fuel, etc in this space, allowing more room in the main hull for your personal equipment. This feature turns this racing machine into a comfortable cruiser. This is a Thoroughbred racing machine. Condors were built to OSTAR standard.,They are Blue-Water race tough, using top-of-the line materials like E and Bi-axial glass; and built to last. Also, vinylester resin was used throughout, which has kept Condors from suffering blistering issues. I have seen 6-8 foot waves break over this boat while sailing to windward and did not hear any creaking. This boat was built for short-handed trans-Atlantic racing. Clear Title in hand. The Captain of this vessel raced with Jack Petith (winner of the '84 OSTAR and '82 Route du Rhuum) This vessel is listed on Craigslist South Florida and Sailboatlistings.com so may be sold locally.

Easily sleeps 5 and is legally registered to have charters for up to six persons. Gusto" Is an incredibly well founded safe and comfortable vessel. She has made trips from Boston to Central America and back several times. She is a full keel vessel that offers a high degree of stability and comfort in any seas The below is my last survey May 30, 2012 Yacht Survey and Condition Report At the request of Mr. Peter M Licnikas the undersigned surveyor conducted a condition and valuation survey of the yacht “GUST-O” a 1978 48 ft Mermaid Ketch sailboat as it lay on jack stands at Yankee Landing Marina Merrimac St, Newburyport, Ma 01951. Name: GUST-O Year: 1978 Builder: Pali Shiang Taipei Hsien, Taiwan Model: Mermaid 42 Ketch Documented: 624951 Hull ID: TAC420251278 Dimensions: LOA 48' LOD 42' Beam 12’2” Draft 6’3” Displacement: 14 net tons Type: Sail Intended Use: Pleasure Hull Graphics and Color: White hull, green bottom Estimated present Value: $71,200.00 Estimated replacement value $245.000.00 Scope of Survey: The purpose of this survey was to estimate the current market value and marine risk evaluation. The survey of this vessel is based solely on careful visual and non-destructive inspection of all accessible portions of its structure and available equipment. Complete inspection can only be made by removal of soles, decking, headliners, ceiling or hull lining, tanks, and joiner work. Complete inspection of machinery, auxiliaries, piping, tanks, systems, electrical wiring, electrical and electronic equipment can only be made by continued operation or by disassembly. This would be damaging in nature and prohibitively time consuming, and therefore was not done. This vessel was surveyed while in lay up at Yankee Landing Marina, Merrimac St. Newburyport, Ma 01951. I visually inspected all sections of the vessel and its equipment detailed in this report. General Description: This hull is a reinforced fiberglass molding hand laid up using alternate layers of mat and woven roven with polyester resin. It is stiffened with web floors, bulkheads and joinery flanges. The hull design incorporates a molded lead filled keel and rudder for ballast. The hull is heavily built and is rigged as a Ketch designed for sail with a 45’ main mast, and 25’ mizzen mast. Bottom: Underwater surfaces were smooth and fair with no signs of damage or recent groundings. The bottom paint was in fair condition. I sounded the entire hull with a phenolic hammer and found no voids, blisters or delamination. I also placed an Electro-physics moisture meter on the hull and found it to be in the acceptable dry range with readings of 15 and less. Through hull fittings were all bronze and appeared original and in good condition, however none were removed for inspection. I observed several through hull fittings that were plugged or partially blocked by barnacles and growth. I recommend the fittings be cored out. The keel is lead filled for ballast rated 9400lbs. The propeller shaft is a 1” in diameter stainless steel supported with a rubber stern bearing with an external housing, all in good condition. I placed a target on the shaft and rotated it. The shaft tracked true within visual tolerances. The rudder is supported at the top with a 1.5” bronze shaft. The shaft and bearings turned smoothly with no signs of wear. Boot top up was white epoxy paint. The paint was in overall good condition with only minor scuffs. I observed one deep scratch on the starboard side that I recommend be repaired to prevent moisture intrusion into the underlying fiberglass. Topsides: Topside teak wood has been removed and replaced with fiberglass with non skid. The topsides were in good condition solid with no signs of moisture or rot. Cabin ventilation is through four Lexan covered 24”X24” teak hatches and four brass 6” air scoops. The life rail was rubber coated stainless steel cable with stainless steel stanchions. All stanchions were well secured and solid. All cleats were stainless and wood in good condition well bedded and solid. The rub rail is teak in good condition. Tanks: The two fuel tanks were rectangle in shape located under the cabin sole. The tanks were aluminum and well secured with proper fill and vents and rated at a total of 88 gallons. Water tanks were rectangle in shape and located under the cockpit sole. The tanks were well secured and fitted with proper vents and fill. The tanks were rated at 110 gallons. Spars & Rigging: Masts and booms are constructed of wood and appeared straight and in good condition. Both masts were rigged with no stretch stainless steel cable and turnbuckles. All rigging was in good condition well secured to the hull and properly tightened. The masts were in need of new paint. Hull Interior: Below decks I removed loose floorboards, opened lockers, and removed drawers for the best inspection of the hull interior and bilge area. I found all bulkheads to be secure with no signs of stress or damage, and the bilges to be in need of a minor cleaning. The interior was finished in custom teak in good condition, and consisted of a V berth forward with full head and shower. To the rear was a salon area consisting of a bench seat on the starboard side and a dinette on the port side. To the rear of the dinette was a galley consisting of a 4 burner natural gas stove with oven, ice box, and double stainless steel sink. The starboard side contained a large chart table with electrical panel. To the rear was a second full head on the starboard side and large master stateroom with queen size bunk. Bilges where sited were generally clean. Bilge pumping was with one super gulper manual pump in the galley. Along with a 12v rule 1500 main pump, and a rule 1000 backup. Steering on board is a pedestal center post with a 3’6” wheel turning a Sea Star hydraulic system rated at 1000 psi. Electrical: The vessels electrical supply is both 120ac powered by a shore power cord only, and 12v. The shore power only powers several outlets. All AC outlets were GFI protected except the outlet near the chart table. I recommend that outlet be changed to a GFI outlet in accordance with ABYC recommended practices. The 12v system not powered up at this time. The 12v wiring was well run, secured, and appropriately sized with a breaker panel and battery selector switch mounted above the chart table in accordance with ABYC recommended practices. The 12 v system was powered with three 800 amp combination starting/house batteries and one 1200 amp and 1000 amp dedicated house batteries. All batteries were in acid proof boxes and well secured located under the aft bunk. Fire Protection: Fire extinguishers consisted of four BC size I. Propulsion Machinery: The yacht power is from a 1978 Perkins 4108 diesel rated at 80 hp. The engine has a 60 amp alternator for charging the starting and house batteries. Engine compartment ventilation was through two 3” intake and exhaust. Engine mounts bolt to steel I beam beds with no apparent signs of movement. Fuel lines are copper hose in good condition. Engine seawater intake is through a bronze ball valve with sea strainer. Engine exhaust is direct to the transom through rubber hose. Fuel filtering is with a Racor filter/water separator in good working order. Lube oil was clean and filled to the proper level. Engine was not running at this time due to winter layup. Engine controls were mounted in the rear cockpit with a single throttle/shift lever with push pull cables. The cables functioned smoothly and were in good working order. THERE IS NO WARRANTY GIVEN OR IMPLIED FOR THE FUTURE USE OR LIFE OF THE ENGINE DESCRIBED HEREIN. Ground Tackle: Ground tackle on board consists of a 40 lb plow type anchor with a good lead of chain and of 5/8” nylon anchor rode. Sail Inventory: 1 mizzen sail 1 mainsail 1 130 jenoa Electronic & Navigation Equipment: Garmin 3210 Plotter/sonar/weather Standard Horizon digital depth sounder Cobra Marine VHF radio Sony Am/Fm/Cassette stereo 1 Ritchie compass Safety Gear: 4 12 gauge Arial flares 8 Type I adult life vests 1 Type V throw ring 3 Type III adult life vests Horn/bell/whistle Conclusion: Overall this vessel appeared very well maintained and in good condition for its age and class. As seen, this vessel would be a considered a suitable marine risk for its intended use of inland, bay, and near costal operation provided all (*) recommendations are complied with, and all U.S. Coast Guard safety equipment is properly fitted. The estimated value was based on the average selling price of vessels of this size, type, construction, condition, and age, with all equipment and accessories observed aboard. This value is based on personal knowledge and experience with the present sales market, along with listings on the internet, references, resources, and publications available to this surveyor, and is represented as our best opinion with available information.

It was my first sailboat after owning powerboat most of my life. I like to restore things so we did an extensive refit with many upgrades, some of which are listed below. I also have all the documentation, manuals and full descriptions of exactly what was dome to the boat during the refit. 29 feet/10 foot beam, Universal M-18 Diesel (700 hrs estimated), Harken furling, electric head and holding tank, dripless shaft seal with new shaft & prop. All new teak wood inside, new companionway (Lexan), perch seats, new Sunbrella cushions, new dodger and sail covers, new stove, pressure water, new aluminum water tank, new port lights (lexan) Sobstad main,150% Genoa (good condition) new main and jib halyards, all interior coverings are new. AGM batteries, all new LED interior lights. This boat is completely refurbished and ready to sail. The boat is presently on the hard at still winterized at my local yacht club and was last used in the fall of 2014. It is seaworthy and is open for inspection. The hull is in good shape without blistering. The gelcoat is shiny and the deck has been refinished (see pictures). I also have an extensive overhaul picture library for anyone interested. The deck is sound with no soft spots although it is 40 years old and there is some dampness in the cored deck as well as the rudder but nothing that will prevent this boat from safe operation. Sails are original but in excellent shape and have been cared for by a local sailmaker.I'm interested in serious buyers only and the boat is for sale locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early.Thanks for looking! Please feel free to research the brand and this particular model - interesting history and well documented performance.

Wild video shows 5 giant sharks surrounding couple’s boat off Massachusetts coast

They’re gonna need a bigger boat.

A couple lobster fishing off the coast of Massachusetts spotted five enormous sharks surrounding their boat — all frighteningly larger than the vessel itself.

Perry and Carmel Long were cruising in their 18-foot boat near Westport on June 9 when they spotted a 25-foot shark lurking below the ocean’s surface and began filming while discussing whether it might be a whale.

“Oh my God, that is a frickin’ shark!” Carmel Long can be heard yelling, as the shark’s fin pops out of the water.

Five more of the massive man-eaters — all roughly the same size — then appeared close to the boat for roughly 20 minutes, they told The Patriot Ledger .

“They were just swimming around us. They were inches away from our boat,” said Perry Long, adding they were likely plant-munching basking sharks.

The couple had been trying to catch lobsters in pots when they unwittingly sunk their teeth into the scary side of marine life.

“We have a recreational 10-pot lobster license, so my family and I for years now have put our pots out at the beginning of the summer season and go out every 3 to 5 days to check and see if we have any lobsters,” Perry Long told the outlet.

“We’ve seen some smaller sharks over the years further out but this was the first time we saw something like this,” he said.

Basking sharks, which can grow over 40 feet, feed exclusively zooplankton.
