Benetau Oceanis 38

The Oceanis 38 and the Dehler 38 made were both boats that made the unanimity in what regards sailboat contests on both sides of the Atlantic.

We have plenty of images of the Dehler 38 sailing but not so many regarding the Oceanis. Here are two videos that shows the boat sailing with light to medium wind. Pity we don't have any with the boat sailing downwind with strong wind. the European boat testers were surprised with the stability and boat performance of the boat on that situation, the one where the boat excels.

Good all around sailing performance, being the comparative worse one on very light winds and an innovative and versatile interior is what made this boat a winner.
