FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Launched in 2021, SEA GYPSY is an extremely high specification example of the latest-generation Pascal Conq – Nauta Design designed Beneteau Oceanis 46.1. With almost every possible option ticked amounting to almost Euro 160,000 in fitted extras including the ‘Family’ trim package, ‘Offshore’ B&G electronics pack, Downwind/Upwing rigging pack, and ‘Tender’ pack, SEA GYPSY has been fitted out for effortless long-term liveboard cruising.
Her specification highlights include:
Very lightly used and offered for exclusive of EU VAT and under a UK flag, SEA GYPSY is available for immediate delivery to make way for the purchase of a larger yacht.
Symbiotically linked through the wheel, helmsman and yacht talk to each other. Small commands are given, the yacht powers forward and feeds back through the feel on the helm. Get the design right and that sensation of power and control is intoxicating, but if the balance is wrong, it can sour the whole experience.
Happily, Beneteau have got the steering on its new 46ft yacht right — very right, as it turned out. That’s not all: the saloon is modern, bright and spacious, the owner’s cabin has acres of space and the cockpit is well laid out for those who want to sail while others can relax in comfort.
The 46.1’s predecessor, the Oceanis 45, was lapped up by private owners and charter companies alike, and the 46.1 offers more: more space, more berths, more sail area. Charterers will be happy with the option of berths galore and easy handling, and private owners can opt for better performance.
So will she become the most popular boat Beneteau have produced, as the Oceanis 45 was before her?
Beneteau has succeeded in producing cruisers that strike the right note with customers for the last 20 years, and the 46.1 promises to do just that. It hits what is the core of the new yacht market at the moment, as evidenced by the slew of 46-footers launched recently.
The concept and layout of the 46.1 has already been well proven in the Oceanis 45, while offering
improvements in the feeling of space, an attractive new aesthetic, and class-leading practical details such as
engine access and cockpit stowage.
It did all this while still delivering a perfectly balanced sailing performance and helming pleasure.
