The new Oceanis 55 offers a lot of choice to buyers in a yacht that can even be set up for single-handed sailing, while giving only light heel in decent breezes
Fifty-five feet is the length of boat that often falls between mid-sized and a large yacht. It opens up a world of long range cruising that a yacht ten feet shorter might not offer, but without the throwaway space of one ten feet bigger.
The 55 is the second longest in the Oceanis range, behind the 58, and it immediately reveals its bloodline through consistent design touches that flow through the Oceanis line. The designers at Berret Racoupeau may not be the most well-known, but their partnership with Beneteau dates back 30 years and they have been responsible for the whole Oceanis range as well as some from Beneteau’s Sense line. Their performance credentials come from several racing yacht designs in the highly competitive field of Open designs, including Vendee Globe finishers.

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.
