We can all attest to the allure of the new Beneteau powerboats, like the Monte Carlo and Gran Turismo models. They are sleek and powerful, like something out of a James Bond movie. Other models in the Beneteau powerboat line, like the Swift Trawlers and Antares, are incredibly roomy and functional. It’s no surprise that we sell a lot of these beautiful powerboats here at Cape Yachts, but I must confess, as a die-hard sailor, I think sailboats are also a good choice for many boaters.
The Beneteau Oceanis 30.1 challenges the long-time idea that bigger is better. This sailboat is so incredible it was dubbed Performance Cruiser of the Year, which just happens to be the most competitive category of awards given to boats. We had the chance to show off the 30.1 at the Newport International Boat Show, and to be honest, the title of "best performance cruiser" fits her perfectly. So what makes the Beneteau Oceanis 30.1 so special?
