Your Boat Should Fit You, Not the other way around
One of the biggest hits of last year was the Oceanis 38 – the custom yacht for the off-the-rack sailor. For 2015, Beneteau follows up that success with the introduction of the Oceanis 35. She features the same daysailer/weekender/cruiser options as the 38, allowing any skipper to create a boat that will fit his or her needs. And the more compact length just makes her that much more nimble and as well as a joy to navigate.
The chined hull by the architects Finot-Conq stands for comfort and good balance under sail, making a particularly noteworthy entry into the market for this size of boat.
With twin rudders, masts positioned further aft and optimized sail plans, the two hulls deliver excellent performance and offer incredible stability underway.
For the Italian design team, the challenge was to multiply the living spaces in the saloon and offer greater privacy in the owner cabin, while maintaining the visual perspective that her opening to the bow offered in previous versions.
The new L-shaped galley makes a facing seat saloon arrangement possible. The space has been well optimised to allow eight people to sit around the table. For anyone who prefers a more contemporary version, a long galley layout is still available.
