“Cat killer” I wrote and underlined in my notebook as we turned the bow of the new Beneteau Oceanis 55 toward Florida’s Government Cut and the Port of Miami. It was a gorgeous February day for sailing. The wind hovered in the 10- to 12-knot range, and to be honest, we’d just had a ball letting the big, powerful monohull strut its stuff while close-reaching at 7 and 8 knots alongside three Bahamas-bound Lagoon catamarans, cousins, if you will, in the Groupe Beneteau family.
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.
