Product Overview

Manufacturer:, price as reviewed:.

Bénéteau chose the Valencia base of America’s Cup defender Alinghi to introduce the latest offering in the Oceanis range, the Bénéteau Océanis 43. It was a smart idea for two reasons. First, the warm, reliable wind and flat, blue water created near-perfect conditions.

Secondly, compared to the America’s Cup Class mutants, screeching with tension and scorching the harbour with technological white heat, the Oceanis range was cool, calm and characterful. A familiar face.

Certainly Bénéteau ‘s mass production philosophy is hugely successful but the boats­-for-all approach has deterred some buyers.

With the Bénéteau Océanis 43, they’re hoping to deliver a more personal experience, more style and attention to detail.

The sailaway price of £133,000 suggests it’s still the Bénéteau we know and love, but the full ­length saloon windows signal a new mindset.

Bénéteau Océanis 43 Under sail

The oversize primary winches (a nod to ease of ownership) easily trimmed us to 35-40° where she felt comfortable.

At the twin wheels, smallish at 915mm, there was reassuring weather helm as she made about 6 knots in 10-12 knots of breeze over a slight chop, albeit with unladen tanks and lockers.

The Bénéteau Océanis 43 tacked promptly through about 90°, dropping to 5 knots before the full main and 140% genoa on the 9/10, twin spreader rig picked her back up to speed.

Jean Berret designed the boat to heel between 5-18°. She slows beyond 20° and, as I found out when overpressed, rounds up at around 25°.

Bénéteau confirmed that any good cruising boat is a compromise of comfort, volume and performance. Provided you begin reefing when the wind exceeds 15 knots, rounding up isn’t an issue.


The genoa furling line leads to the port primary, so you’d need to fly a sheet if shortening sail on starboard or use the port cockpit winch.

We furled and single-line reefed with ease and steerage wasn’t a problem thereafter.

The halyard winches are also a good size but we noticed the coach roof flex below the winch while reefing. Again I mentioned this to Bénéteau and they reassured me that it won’t be a problem on production boats.

Bearing off, the steering became more leisurely, gaining an assured touch I hadn’t noticed upwind, still responsive but tracking steadily.

The Bénéteau Océanis 43 beam reached deliciously at 7-9 knots in 14-18 knots. Broad reaching with white sails, 5-6 knots in 12-18 knots was comfortable, if unspectacular.

A cruising chute added a knot or two to the deeper angles and a bigger smile to the helmsman’s face.

The tackline was rigged in reverse during our test sail and, when the chute refilled after collapse, the bow roller twisted visibly. Rigged correctly, Bénéteau say it’s not a problem.

Twin leather-bound wheels offer a fine view ahead, standing or comfortably seated, but don’t swing the wheel too low to windward, you’ll trap your fingers against the coaming.

The instruments are mounted on the bulkhead behind each wheel, so they’re easy to read but pushing buttons to change function could be tricky.

The primary winches are more than big enough and each within reach of a wheel – good for short-handed tacking.

The cockpit, easily big enough for six, is comfortably deep and the moulded base of its fixed table is perfect for bracing.

Under the starboard helm seat, there’s a cavernous lazarette with maintenance access to the steering quadrant.

Moving forward there are well placed grab rails as far as the mast and further forward the 2in teak toerail offers secure footing. Each toerail has four good-size drains with three 1 Sin cleats.

The lack of fairleads meant fore and aft springs missed the stainless steel antichafe strips. and the aft cleats were only 2in from the split backstay terminals.

I mentioned these prototype niggles to Bénéteau and production boats will have antichafe strips extended by 6in and the aft cleats will be moved further clear.

Below decks

We sailed the three-cabin version. There is a two­ cabin version with an L-shaped galley next to the companionway.

As you might expect, there’s excellent stowage above the cabin sole, including innovative lockers behind the saloon backrests. There’s very little bilge stowage but that’s the price you pay for excellent headroom.

The light below is striking. With full-length smoked glass windows in the coach roof. hull ports and twin decklights just aft of the mast, the saloon is flooded with light.


Light and space: 6fi 3in headroom forward, thanks to a 2in drop in the cabinsole.

Again, there are enough handholds below, both obvious and cleverly concealed, to keep you sure-footed without disturbing Nauta’s Italian design lines.

Ventilation is also excellent and the 6ft 8in headroom enhances the sense of space.

Through both 5ft 8in aft cabin doors, you’ll find 6ft 3in headroom (the same as the en suite heads) leading to 6ft 7in bunks with storage below the outboard shelving, plus a hanging locker in each.

There’s more space than you’d expect in both cabins, but that’s because the cockpit lockers aren’t deeper than the cockpit.

Forward (the berth I’d chose), the 6ft 3in headroom in the cabin and heads is maintained by a neat 2in step down.

There’s shelving either side of the 6ft 7in double berth and a hanging locker. Given the focus on owner comfort, it’s a surprise that both heads are to starboard. Heeled beyond about 15° on starboard tack, both flush air.

Under power

With our three-bladed fixed prop, the Yanmar 54HP offered 6 knots at 2,000rpm and a shade over 8 knots flat out.

The Yanmar runs smoothly at all revs and, although the soundproofing is fairly basic, it’s quieter at high revs than one might expect below.

The Bénéteau Océanis 43 turns in 1.5 times her own length ahead and twice her length astern, largely thanks to the keel’s modest chord length and the flat underwater profile.

Motoring astern at over 3 knots, expect to wrestle with the wheel. That’s not unusual, but the size of the wheels makes it more of a factor than I’d expected.


Hull construction is single skin GRP. reinforced at the keel, rudder, chainplates and at the hull/deck joint and the inner moulding, also single skin GRP, is bonded and laminated in place. Bonding and screws secure the glass fibre/balsa sandwich deck to the hull.

Our test boat’s 6ft 6in cast iron keel (there is a 5ft Sin option) was bolted through stainless steel backing plates and bonded in place, and there’s a stainless steel stock on the 5ft Sin rudder.

The Bénéteau Océanis 43 boat has a greater emphasis on design and attention to detail than the standard Bénéteau.

Built as an ‘owner’s boat’, she aims to deliver light, space and luxury. She achieves the first two better than the third but, as the price suggests, she’s not in the luxury market.

The saloon windows are distinctive, adding flair usually associated with more expensive marques. And they work wonders below in the spacious, welcoming saloon.

The forecabin is the best of the bunch but there’s plenty of space throughout.

On the downside, both heads on the starboard side makes life a little inconvenient on a long starboard beat.

Upwind she needs reefing in anything over 1 S knots but she’ll go well in lighter airs under full sail. Offwind, you’ll want a cruising chute.

Beneteau 43

  • By Jeremy McGeary
  • Updated: March 27, 2008

oceanis 43 sailboatdata

At the 2006 U.S. Sailboat Show, when Beneteau announced with great fanfare its new line of cruising boats with interiors designed by Nauta Design, a firm of, well, interior designers, the cynics in the audience responded with an almost audible “Uh-oh.”

Perhaps they were remembering the late 1980s, when “decorators” forced sailors to live among curved surfaces-hard to do on the level, never mind heeled at 20 degrees. To everyone’s relief, the most recent approach by Beneteau has proven to be refreshingly rectilinear, and the resulting layouts are both practical and comfortable. In the Beneteau 43, the benefits of the design approach are immediately apparent, and the result is an arrangement that includes all the essential elements in almost exquisite proportion.

Forward, the V-berth cabin has walk-about room, a dressing seat, a variety of stowage, and a private head and shower compartment. In the two-cabin version, the complementary cabin aft, on the starboard side, has a huge athwartships berth in addition to standing room and ample places to stow clothes and personal effects. This cabin has its own door to the main head, which contains a shower stall.

The saloon offers a large table with seating on three sides. Both settees are long enough to lie on, and lee cloths will make them comfortable sea berths. A small, though adequate, aft-facing chart desk at the foot of the port settee completes the setting. A continuous line of lockers tucked under the side decks ties the entire area together visually and extends to the galley, furnishing it with numerous eye-level storage cabinets. The hinge-down doors appear a little close to the stovetop, but in all other respects, the galley seems utterly seaworthy. It’s tucked aft, to port of the companionway, where a well-braced cook can reach the necessities: stove, front-opening fridge, top-loading freezer, drawers, and work surfaces fittingly guarded with solid fiddles.

The companionway is well proportioned, and the immediate area on entering the cabin offers plentiful handholds: stainless-steel bars on either side of the ladder and on the head partition, plus the galley fiddles. However, further handholds to facilitate passage forward from the galley would be useful.

The decor includes the cabin sole, which is similar in color and texture to the bulkheads. To maintain uniformity in appearance, the floorboards fit flush, with no lifting rings or latches. On the boat tested, the smaller lift-out boards over such items as the speed transducer had finger holes, but the section next to the saloon table had to be lifted with the aid of a suction cup. Doing so reveals a very flat, shallow bilge and a sump just large enough to accommodate the bilge pump, a Rule-Mate rated to handle 1,100 gallons per hour.

While a deeper sump has its advantages, flat bilges are indicative of a shallow canoe body, which, for a given draft, allows more salient depth of keel and thus more bite for windward work. This is especially helpful when geography makes a necessity of the optional shoal-draft keel.

Flat bilges are also indicative of a hull shaped like that of a dinghy. Dinghies like to be sailed flat, and displacement boats of similar hull form do, too. Under full sail on a day of variable airs, whenever the breeze climbed into the upper teens, I was surprised to find that the boat didn’t heel much, suggesting that the keel and the stiff, beamy hull work well together.

The standard headsail is a 140-percent genoa, so the first step in reducing sail when on the wind would be to roll it up a little. We didn’t, as the breeze, though variable, wasn’t gusty; when necessary, we took hardness out of the helm by simply easing the mainsheet traveler. It took little effort to trim the jib, and careful placement of the primary winches makes that possible from the helm, so one person can tack the boat. The mainsail controls are on the cabin wings, two strides away.

The wind profile across the Potomac River allowed us to see the boat broad-reach at 7.8 knots in 17 knots true and at 5.8 knots in less than 12 knots. On the wind, it was only a little slower. Powering at full throttle (3,200 rpm), it achieved an impressive 8.5 knots, and at 2,000 rpm it quietly managed a mile-eating 6.2 knots.

When sailing, the broad cockpit with twin steering stations gave me the feeling of being on a much bigger boat, a feeling seemingly contradicted by the facility with which the 43 handled. The owner, Mark Rickey, said that making the step up from a 34-footer had been easier than he and his wife, Mary Lou, had expected and that the Beneteau’s longer legs let them now plan on daysailing to destinations 45 miles distant, a considerable extension of their weekend cruising radius.

Stepping out of the cockpit to go forward requires minimal acrobatics, but the handrails on the cabin trunk could be improved-you can’t close a hand or tie a line around them-and they terminate at the shrouds. Beneteau installs padeyes as harness points in the cockpit and on the forward corners of the cabin trunk so that jacklines can be run inboard.

In the cockpit, the robust table provides a footrest for the seated and a brace for the upright; subtly angled planes in the sole provide traction for the helmsman’s feet. Built-in shelves and a floor prevent the huge locker under the port seat from becoming an utter black hole for deck matter. Another locker under the starboard helm seat provides access to the steering, the propane locker is under the port helm seat, and a European Union-approved life-raft locker opens onto the transom platform.

Even a measured venture like Beneteau’s into “designer”-styled interiors will raise some functional idiosyncrasies, but the Berret Racoupeau design team has vested the sailboat side of the Beneteau 43 with manners and grace.

Strange Glow Over Moscow Skies Triggers Panic as Explosions Reported

B right flashes lit up the night sky in southern Moscow in the early hours of Thursday morning, new footage appears to show, following reports of an explosion at an electrical substation on the outskirts of the city.

Video snippets circulating on Russian-language Telegram channels show a series of flashes on the horizon of a cloudy night sky, momentarily turning the sky a number of different colors. In a clip shared by Russian outlet MSK1.ru, smoke can be seen rising from a building during the flashes lighting up the scene.

Newsweek was unable to independently verify the details of the video clips, including when and where it was filmed. The Russian Ministry of Emergency situations has been contacted via email.

Several Russian Telegram accounts said early on Thursday that residents of southern Moscow reported an explosion and a fire breaking out at an electrical substation in the Leninsky district, southeast of central Moscow.

Local authorities in the Leninsky district told Russian outlet RBC that the explosion had happened in the village of Molokovo. "All vital facilities are operating as normal," Leninsky district officials told the outlet.

The incident at the substation in Molokovo took place just before 2 a.m. local time, MSK1.ru reported.

Messages published by the ASTRA Telegram account, run by independent Russian journalists, appear to show residents close to the substation panicking as they question the bright flashes in the sky. One local resident describes seeing the bright light before losing access to electricity, with another calling the incident a "nightmare."

More than 10 villages and towns in the southeast of Moscow lost access to electricity, the ASTRA Telegram account also reported. The town of Lytkarino to the southeast of Moscow, lost electricity, wrote the eastern European-based independent outlet, Meduza.

Outages were reported in the southern Domodedovo area of the city, according to another Russian outlet, as well as power failures in western Moscow. Electricity was then restored to the areas, the Strana.ua outlet reported.

The cause of the reported explosion is not known. A Telegram account aggregating news for the Lytkarino area described the incident as "an ordinary accident at a substation."

The MSK1.ru outlet quoted a local resident who speculated that a drone may have been responsible for the explosion, but no other Russian source reported this as a possible cause.

Ukraine has repeatedly targeted Moscow with long-range aerial drones in recent months, including a dramatic wave of strikes in late May.

On Sunday, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said the region's air defense systems had intercepted an aerial drone over the city of Elektrostal, to the east of Moscow. No damage or casualties were reported, he said.

The previous day, Russian air defenses detected and shot down another drone flying over the Bogorodsky district, northeast of central Moscow, Sobyanin said.

There is currently no evidence that an aerial drone was responsible for the reported overnight explosion at the electrical substation in southern Moscow.

Beneteau Oceanis 42 CC

Beneteau Oceanis 42 CC is a 43 ′ 4 ″ / 13.2 m monohull sailboat designed by Jean Marie Finot (Groupe Finot) and built by Beneteau between 2003 and 2007.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
