Elements of Marigold

Part of the fifth generation of Oceanis Yachts, this two-cabin version of the Beneteau Oceanis 40 is sleek and spacious and is well optioned for comfortable cruising.

Hallmark features of this renown design are the large cockpit, powerful sail plan, and remarkable sea keeping qualities. A user-friendly design with all controls intuitively within reach.

Berret & Racoupeau, along with interior designer Nauta Design, are better known for penning much larger yachts with a  design emphasis on creature comforts and livable spaces, and they have successfully brought this concept to the Beneteau Oceanis 40.

Marigold is in great condition and presents much newer than her 2008 vintage. She has benefitted from professional care as directed by a dedicated owner, who has now purchased a larger Beneteau.

Owners enjoy a comfortable and intuitive layout, superb use of space, windows all around for sweeping vistas and natural light, adding to her suitability to cruising our waters.

Throughout Marigold

Board through the opening gate from the swim platform to the cockpit, or the port and starboard gates to the side decks. The cockpit is covered and can easily be enclosed adding protection during off weather, and generally increases the living space on board. 

There is ample room for lounging or dining al fresco.

Enter Marigold via teak louvered doors to the companionway. These fold open and snap  in place eliminating the need to stow annoying drop boards. Five gently sloping stairs with good traction lead down to the galley, salon and interior living spaces.

The galley is to port and continues aft making a huge space with great storage, refrigeration and working surfaces.

Next forward is the navigation chart table with more storage, radios, breaker distribution panel, and other systems controls and monitors.

Across to starboard is the head with separate shower stall.

This is a two cabin layout with the master cabin and the guest cabin aft to starboard.

Midships is the salon with a straight settee to port, and a U settee to starboard, with a large table for dining or playing games. TV on the forward bulkhead.
