The new Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 62, the French builder’s new flagship sailboat, has reached U.S. shores.

I got lucky—I was the first journalist to sail hull number one of the Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 62 (replacing the Oceanis 60 as the flagship of the fleet) off the coast of Les Sables d’Olonne in western France. Then I got lucky again after the 62 arrived in the U.S., and I joined her delivery crew from Annapolis, Maryland to Newport, Rhode Island for a 450-mile downwind journey. This extended time aboard showed me the way the boat is intended to be used, something you can’t get from an afternoon test. And while I couldn’t film during the trip, we did have the chance to shoot this quick First Look Video in Annapolis.
