I'm new to the forum

Hi everyone,

My name is Halil, from Turkey. I am a prostect owner of a Beneteau Oceanis 40. She will be delivered to me in Bodrum Turkey around mid April. I have been sailing for about six years. Most of them on charter boats. Now I decided I should own one.

I will be sharing with you all, about my experiences and interesting moments during sailing. I know there are many more experienced sailors in this forum. I am expecting to benefit from all the threads here.

Halil

Welcome to Sailnet. The B40 should be very comfortable for you and I look forward to reading about sailing in Turkey. MGM

Hi Halil,

I am also waiting for an Oceanis 40 to be delivered in May. I am from Portugal and the boat will be based in Mallorca. May be we can share some information as prospective owners of a similar boat.

Kind Regards, Luis

Hi Luis,

I am glad that we will be able to share experiences. I hope we won't be talking about problems. But it is a fact that every new boat owner strugles with some issues at the beginning.

My boat is elegance two cabin version, which comes with bimini, sprayhood and one electric winch. I added Eberspcharer heater.The anchor Beneteau gives is a Britany 16 kg with 60 m 10mm chain. I decided to keep this anchor as the spare and I bought a n Ultra anchor 21 kg. I am also planning to add about 40m of chain. Because some places in Turkey the shore is too steep and anchoring is done about 15-20 meter.

I didn't add bow thruster since I wanted to see really how much I am going to need it. In time I will decide about that.

So far this is it. I want to hear from you your options and opinions.

Happy sailing,

Halil

Thumbs up New to the forum

Hi All.

I have a 1 yr old Bavaria 38 two cabin sail boat which is in Sydney Australia

Currently we use it as a weekender but have plans to sail north to the barrier reef and coastal islands.
Would like to hear from anybody interested in similar activities.
