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.
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.
Interior lighting upgraded to LED.
Both cabins are large and comfortable and either might be considered the master. But the designers describe the master being forward and the guest aft.
Master cabin forward with 6’ 3” headroom, double berth measuring 6’ 6” by 5’ 3”.
Guest cabin aft to starboard with 6’ 9” headroom, and a double berth measuring 6’ 10” by 4’ 11”.
The head is to starboard with access door from aft cabin or from salon
Natural light fills the salon with signature large sweeping windows all along the port and starboard sides, with three opening portlights, and an opening overhead hatch with bug screen and privacy shade.
The galley is to port, and a little aft, and although a little compact for two, the chef has all the elements needed to create and impress. It is adjacent to the salon with Corian counter tops, and lots of storage in numerous cabinets.
The cockpit is the heart of the boat and is broad and comfortable for lounging, entertaining or dining. And while at sea, all controls are safely and conveniently within easy reach, with room to move about.
There is an opening in the bench seat aft which tilts up allowing safe and unfettered access to the transom for boarding at dock, or for getting in or out of the tender which at anchor.
port and starboard steering stations also allow movement aft as well as unsurpassed viewing angles while steering from the weather or the lee side - captain’s choice.
AC and DC power systems service the vessel through circuit breaker panels with appropriate voltage and ampere gauges. 110VAC is provided by 30 Amp shore connection, and, based on available house bank battery power, through the inverter.
Auxiliary power is by Yanmar 53 hp 4-cylinder diesel with fresh water cooling. This was an upgrade from the standard 40 hp Yanmar.
Hull of hand-laid solid GRP bonded to a structural grid / hull liner of directional fiberglass / GRP for a strong, stiff, light composite.
Vinylester resins used in the outer coat for added resistance to osmotic blistering.
Zone-specific stitchmat laminates for specific increased strength optimization where needed.
Cored GRP sandwich construction for stiffness, thermal and acoustic insulation and lighter weight.
Solid fiberglass reinforcements in high load areas. Integral unidirectional GRP deck beams for added strength. Main bulkheads bonded 360° to the hull and deck for rigid torsional and compressive strength.
