Océanis 320
Wing keel

The philosophy of this late 80's boat is quite unusual: rather than maximizing the number of cabins and berths, the designer and the shipyard chose to focus on comfort and space for 4 people. The interior fitting therefore offers two beautiful cabins and a saloon on side that gives way to an open longitudinal kitchen. Just behind there is a comfortable chart board and, equally well placed closet just at the entrance. This being said, both of these quite practical aspects won't cover the lack of handrails...

On the deck, the comfort equals easiness: the roll-Genoa is a standard feature (with the drum under the deck) and all sail maneuvers are handled from the cockpit. Without being a race boat, Océanis 320 sails well and without requiring constant adjustments... making it a prominently easy sailboat. The shoal draft version surprises with its winged keel, which makes it almost as good as the classic draft (1.40m – 4.6ft).
