Oceanis 523, Short description of the sailing yacht

After the success of the Oceanis 411 and the Oceanis 473, we have specified, with the Bénéteau shipyard, the Oceanis 523, a spacious boat with the ability for varied fittings for a reduced crew as well as for a full crew

The Oceanis 523 was entirely designed in 3D CAD, some of its moulds have been CNC milled.
The boat is built out of fibreglass reinforced polyester, stiffened by an inner moulded structure.

Tanks are gathered in the centre of the boat, under the cabin floor in order to concentrate the masses and avoid trim variations.
The engine is under the companionway, its compartment extend aft to provide space for the generator.

The Oceanis 523 is a wide boat with a good hull stability. The keel is moderately deep and the gravity centre is placed very low. This gives a stable boat, with a good balance under heel and a good steering control

The generous sail area give good performance even in light air. The majority of handling operations is brought back to the cockpit.

The deck is very clear. A large aft platform allows to bath, to go up and down to the dinghy easily. The life raft is stored under this bathing platform and can be out easily.

The roof has two levels with panoramic portholes. The helmsman’s cockpit is well separated, with the genoa manoeuvres at hand.
2 steering wheels. The main cockpit is wide with a folding table around which the crew can easily sit down to take a meal.
It can be protected by a sprayhood above the companionway and a bimini for the sun.
