Malabar, Perfect Sailing’s brand new Oceanis 45 (our second new yacht this year) has left Perpignan in France bound for her new home here in Orhaniye Turkey.

She will enjoy a relaxed cruise for six weeks as her new owners get to grips with this fantastic yacht. The Oceanis 45 is one of the ‘new generation’ Beneteau, along with her siblings the 41.1 and 48.

When she arrives in Orhaniye she will undergo a two week preparation for charter to add all the kit needed for an excellent charter experience, from safety equipment to Wi-Fi, even novels and boardgames.

Here are some photos of her modern light oak interior.

Malabar has the three cabin layout finished in light oak with grey trim, very modern she looks too. malabar sports a long list of factory extras, including electric drop down transom remote control and windlass chain counter. The owners have added some nice personal touches too. An increase the internal storage is just one example.

We know they have worked hard to make much more than the vanilla yacht, for example the very expensive but oh so lovely helm chart plotter repeaters. Now you can focus on making her sail fast with all the information customisable at the helm.

If you fancy chartering Malabar but you’re a bit concerned whether you could handle her or not, this could put your mind to rest. Just look at the photo of the owner’s mum (I’m too polite to mention here age) with a big smile on her face. I’m not surprised, Malabar sailing on her first trial sail at over 10 knots, and it could be you too.
