"Life of Chill " is # 7 of the 291 Oceanis 40 CC hulls built between 1995-2002.  The Beneteau 40 CC offers an excellent combination of sailing performance and ‘livability’. The Groupe Finot hull combines performance with the versatility of a center cockpit. The boat has wide side decks,  a good-sized aft deck, with big lazarettes on each quarter and a comfortable center cockpit. "Life of Chill" is comfortable and  easy to sail featuring a Furling Mainsail, 130% Genoa and Furling Staysail and an L-shaped keel with bulb. 

The Oceanis 40 CC features a roomy center cockpit design and very 'liveable' accommodations.  The interior has a cozy salon, independent chart table & plenty of storage. The galley is fantastic – long and workable. "Life of Chill" features two very accommodating cabins each with attached private head, The spacious aft cabin has a centerline berth & lots of storage as well as a large head. The Pullman berth in the forward cabin allows for a head in the bow and room to move about in the cabin, as well as loads of storage.

Exceptionally comfortable above and below decks, the 40CC is extremely stable and easy to handle. She was created out of in-depth research into long-distance cruising. The result is a fast hull with an effortless rig. Her beautiful interior makes optimum use of space for supreme comfort.
