While celebrating its 11-year partnership with the China Cup International Regatta, Beneteau has collaborated with the competition’s organising committee to launch the Oceanis 51.1 and the Oceanis 41.1 China Cup Limited Edition.

Fitted with a tall carbon or aluminium mast, the new Oceanis 51.1 has up to 35 per cent additional sail area made of high-tech materials. The boat also has a 2.8m lead bulb keel for better performance.

Completing this Limited Edition are a composite steering wheel, deck fittings, and a bowsprit for a range of new sailing experiences.

Different from the offshore-fitted 51.1 model, the Oceanis 41.1 will be optimal for onshore races during the China Cup. With a taller mast, a lower boom and a set of Elvström Windward 300+ sails, the model is a high-preforming cruising boat.

The China Cup International Regatta’s competitors will race onshore and offshore on these new boats.
