With a stemhead and her hard-chine hull and well-proportioned sides and coachroof, the Oceanis 30.1 looks unashamedly like a small yacht. The Finot-Conq plan has met the double challenge of power and simple navigation. With her slender bow, optimized weight, stiff canvas and square-top mainsail, she performs well in all points of sailing. For beginners or for short-handed sailing, the self-tailing jib and the single winch make her easy to handle. For performance, the Oceanis 30.1 has a large overlapping genoa, a furling code zero and an asymmetric spinnaker. Aft, a step affords access to the sea and can be supplemented by a small lifting platform.
With a few extra centimetres won in strategic places the Oceanis 30.1 differs from other boats, thanks to a headspace of 1.98 m in all the places inside where it is comfortable to stand. The two good-sized double cabins each have berths running lengthwise and an open entryway making them feel particularly spacious. The two benches in the saloon provide an additional place for two extra berths. The large shower room is divided into a marine toilet on one side and shower and washbasin on the other. At the foot of the gently sloping companionway, the L-shaped galley has top and bottom storage, a 75-litre refrigerator and a real oven under the gas hob.
