Beneteau Oceanis 55 • The new Oceanis 55 is a powerful cruising sloop loaded with modern innovations

 

The morning we took the new Oceanis 55 for a test sail off Miami Beach, the wind was gusting to over 20 knots from the east and seas outside Government Cut were short and steep. The gang aboard for the test sail had joined the 55 at Miamarina in Miami and we had then motored the two miles to the cut and the ocean.

Under power the big sloop, which was fitted with a 75-h.p. diesel and a sail drive with a fixed three-bladed prop, ambled along nicely at cruising revs making 8 knots without breaking a sweat. At full revs, the 55 is capable of running at 9 plus knots while burning about a gallon and a half an hour. The 55 can be equipped with Beneteau’s Dock & Go system that allows you to maneuver into and out of incredibly tight marinas and docking situations. Or you can opt for the simpler bow thruster solution.
