This model marks the beginning of a new generation of boats, introducing the concept of the Roll Bar. Starting with the Oceanis 48, all Oceanis models will include this much discussed accessory. The boat is massive, with a wide stern that creates a magnificent cockpit, and a transom that drops into the hull to connect the swim platform with the cockpit itself. This new generation of boats uses a lamination technique called infujection, developed by Beneteau, which combines elements of injection and infusion. This technique reduces production costs, decreases the weight of the boat and increases the solidity of the hull.
