Sailing the 55 is an experience not to forget. The super-large cockpit is uncluttered and offers plenty of space to seat 10+ people comfortably.

The performance hull with full chine and twin rudders give remarkable balance. And like on her sister models, the masts have been moved aft, resulting in an easy to handle sail plan and improved performance.

The 55 features Beneteau’s Dock & Go mooring system … an on-board intelligence system that simplifies manoeuvring by using a joystick control, making mooring easier than ever before.

55 Interior

The steps of the Oceanis 55 flow into the cabin, so that you feel as though you’re gliding downstairs rather than climbing down a ladder.

Eight portlights illuminate the luxurious interior, as well as side windows in the trunk cabin, three deck hatches forward, and numerous sky lights both large and small on top of the coach roof.

The impressive beam of the Oceanis 55 means there is ample room on the yacht for up to five sleeping cabins, in five variations, accommodating 10 people.

So the yacht can be customised to suit your lifestyle and sailing requirements. The U-shaped galley is to port, and includes a dishwasher, a top and front loading fridge and a pop up flat-screen tv in the saloon. A double stainless steel sink faces aft, and the stove and oven outboard. A Fusion system delivers surround sound and there is ample storage including plenty of beautifully designed wine racks.

This latest addition to Beneteau’s long running Oceanis series just may be the most impressive model yet from the world’s largest sailboat manufacturer. From the commodious cockpit that seamlessly mixes comfort and control, to the powerful 7/8th rig that is balanced by a fast and stable hull form, to a price that represents an excellent value in a tough marketplace, the Oceanis 55 has upped the ante when it comes to large, production cruisers.

The Beneteau Oceanis 55 is a versatile cruising boat in a perfect size range to be both large enough to sleep 10 people and be easy to sail short-handed. The builder calls her a ‘custom’ boat, and while we wouldn’t go that far, she does have five different interior layouts, three keel depths to choose from, and over 61 options, so owners can zero-in on exactly what they want. She is powered by a 1,431 sq ft (133 sqm) sail plan, plus a Yanmar 75-hp diesel with pod drive. Beneteau’s popular Dock & Go system is an option which includes a bow thruster and autopilot.

The Beneteau Oceanis 55 first premiered in Dusseldorf (Beneteau Oceanis 55: A Hint of Megayacht Style) but it was first seen in the US at the Miami boat show, where crowds lined up to visit what looked like a small superyacht – yes, an oxymoron. From the drop-down swim platform, to the lounging sunpads and down to the innovative and modular interior, the yacht boasts versatility, changeability and the utmost in personalisation as if to say, “I can be anything you want me to be.”

Besides being big and comfortable and good looking, this latest Oceanis from designer Berret Racoupeau is a hoot to sail. When the puffs come on, hard chines that carry aft from well forward of the mast dig in to keep the boat upright and tracking straight. Twin rudders give you lots of feedback at either of the two helms—and they, in turn, provide a variety of seating options, letting you choose the best sightline forward. I preferred the lee rail, where I could watch the telltales on the 105-percent genoa.
