Manufacturer Provided Description

Feedback from owners has provided Beneteau with knowledge to further perfect the Oceanis concept. The Oceanis 440 is enriched with the technological advances of Beneteau's Research Department. The Beneteau Water Shield System places an impervious shield between the gelcoat and the laminate. This innovation prevents the penetration of water and the potential for osmotic blistering of the hull. Beneteau uses a structural grid system in the construction of the hull to provide maximum stiffness, as well as correct rig and keel load distribution. The Oceanis 440 was designed for maximum performance with minimal effort. Her bulb keel with winglets gives optimum lift and stability, plus all the benefits of shoal draft. She is equipped with an in-mast mainsail furler and genoa furler, which make sail setting and stowage child's play. Side decks and cockpit are completely clear of tracks, winches and maneuvering lines making movement around the deck easy and safe. Once the anchor is set for the night, the large cockpit table becomes the center of social activity on board. If a dip before dinner would feel nice, simply open the transom gate and her swim platform with ladder and shower awaits. The standard interior is cherry, with the option of teak. All wooden surfaces are protected by three coats of varnish. Molded companionway steps with non-skid inserts provide safety underway. Ample light and air enter through the many ports and hatches. The galley features a three-burner propane stove with oven, a double, stainless steel sink with mixing faucet and cutting board. The top loading freezer and front loading refrigerator are lined with stainless steel and provide 7.3 cubic feet of storage.
