Another frown-inducer is the saloon style doors on the main hatch, an issue I've put to designer Pascual Conq
before: "This design al low's us a much lower entry sill into the cabin," explained Pascual.
As Pascal Conq explained to me about the design phase, a lot had to be considered.
"The designs were quite challenging because of the different versions and the weight differences changes the waterline, so there were a lot of calculations," explained Conq. These calculations were done on the same fluid dynamics software used by the Oracle America's Cup team and the number crunching created a 3D software model that went straight into the mould configuration.
Known for his many performance boats, including the race winning Pogo, designer Pascal Conq has produced a modern family cruiser with stability coming from a wide beam and modest sail plan, yet in a reasonably light hull for fast coastal cruising.
continues his design relationship with Beneteau in this beamy hull which maximises the waterline with a T-keel to support the sailplan.
This was a major part of the design remit, said designer Pascal Conq as we sat aboard in the Mediterranean port of Majorca talking about his latest creation.
"The design was quite challenging because of the different versions, and the 500kg weight difference changes the waterline, so there were a lot of calculations," explained Conq.
"It doesn't matter if it's just a cruising boat, it must sail really well," added Conq as we checked out the vast cockpit of the Oceanis 38; the largest in this class of yacht, aided greatly by the vast beam.
"We advise 15 to ?o percent degrees of heel, which brings the chines onto the waterline," commented Conq. The build process for the Oceanis 38 uses the latest infusion technique with solid GRP underwater and balsa sandwich in the topsides, plus a solid GRP internal lining.
