Individuality and diversity combined in a 35 footer. In 2014, the Oceanis 38 won prizes as prestigious as the title of European Yacht of the Year 2014, the NMMA Innovation Award and SAIL’s Best Boat. These awards reflect the maturity of the concept behind the upgradeable cruiser that was first launched by Bénéteau a few months ago. Whether in Daysailer, Weekender or Cruiser mode, the Oceanis 35 reaffirms the sleek and seductive idea of a ‘3-in-1’ cruiser in a boat that is both singular and plural.
One of the biggest hits of last year was the Oceanis 38 sailboat – the custom yacht for the off-the-rack sailor. For 2015, Beneteau follows up that success with the introduction of the Oceanis 35 sailboat. 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 era of custom sailing for every sailor is about to become even more attainable with the Oceanis 35. Beneteau shook the sailing world last year with the introduction of the Oceanis 38, a yacht that could be either a daysailer, weekender or cruiser. The 35 is the next logical step in this evolution of adaptability. She will feature all the elegant design elements and flexibility of her big sister with even more value.
