OCEANIS 30.1 : 2020 Boat of the year

Cruising World Judges named the Oceanis 30.1 the Best Performance Cruiser for 2020.

Fun, Fun, Fun

With five dedicated, dual-purpose racer/cruisers measuring in at under 37 feet, the Performance Cruiser class was not only the largest and most competitive division in the 2020 Boat of the Year contest, but it was also the most fun. Putting this roster of compact, peppy sailboats through their paces was nothing short of a blast.

Judge Ralph Naranjo was perhaps the most performance-­oriented sailor in this year’s judging panel, and he had strong opinions on all of the nominees

 

“The little Beneteau had dual wheels, which might seem like overkill, but they worked.”
