The second boat above 50 feet in the Beneteau Oceanis line is set to dazzle with luxury and comfort.
By Morten Strauch, YACHT magazine.
The Berret/Racoupeau design for the Oceanis 55 follows the new trend, which started with the smaller Oceanis models. It includes more volume aft, hard chines, and twin rudders to prevent loss of steerage when the boat’s wedge-shaped hull is heeled. For the same reason the mast and the center of effort in the rig were moved aft as well. Like the other new Oceanis models, the 55 is equipped with a mainsheet system that’s attached on the targa wing high above the cockpit to free up more space for the deck arrangements.

We will have the new Oceanis 55 on display at the Strictly Sail Miami Show in February 2014. She will feature the shallowest of the keel options, 4’9. The medium keel is 5’11. Either of these two keels are ideal for the Gulf Coast.
