Oceanis 51.1 launched in the UK by Alex Thomson

Oceanis 51.1, the first in a new generation of Oceanis cruising yachts, was launched at The Southampton Boat Show by Alex Thomson on 15th September 2017.

Alex Thomson is a major talent in international yacht racing, finishing second in the 2016 Vendée Globe and leading the way in performance sailing aboard HUGO BOSS since 2003. Alex pushes the boundaries in sailing with record breaking results (he has completed the fastest solo circumnavigation of the globe in a monohull), and awe-inspiring stunts.

"It’s an honour to launch the new Beneteau Oceanis 51.1, having such a connection with the French through the Vendée, I’m delighted to be involved in launching this groundbreaking cruising yacht, the first in a new generation.” – Alex Thomson
