In the wake of the new Oceanis 51.1 and the sumptuous Oceanis Yacht 62, the Oceanis 55 has evolved into a 55.1 version that rounds off the Beneteau offer in the stylishly elegant large cruiser segment.
With a tauter profile, this new 55.1 has retractable davits on deck and an in-mast furling system combined with a self-tacking jib that will make manoeuvres considerably easier for single or double handed sailing. Inspired by the Oceanis Yacht, the helm consoles, equipped with large navigation displays, favour visibility and manoeuvres under sail.
The 55.1 still includes important innovations, such as the mainsail arch, mast position, balanced sail plan, 45° companionway, and electric swim platform, which all go to make this cruiser effortless to live on. Equipped with performance sails, she really comes into her own under sail.
Combined with the cockpit’s L-shaped seats, the two sun-loungers on the roof cleverly provide ample of places to relax outside. At anchor, the huge aft platform lowers to provide a terrace at sea level ensuring various sea activities are easily achievable.
For the interior atmosphere of the cruiser there is great freedom of choice, with brushed oak woodwork that is very much on trend. The chart table and its comfortable pivoting chair, the new upholstery in the lounge area and the incredible optimisation of space in the master cabin – 160 cm wide island bed and a separate en-suite shower room – give this chic Oceanis 55.1 all the hallmarks of a luxury yacht.
Her galley is very well equipped and very spacious, her interior can be adapted to multiple layouts, and there is scope for personalizing her ambiance by choosing very different woodwork and linings to create a refined and welcoming atmosphere.
Rectangular portholes not only offer a stunning view of the horizon but also allow exorbitant amount of lights into the cabin eliminating any risk of claustrophobia.
The Oceanis 55.1 can be an epic bach for for family getaways, a place to call home, an investment, or platform to explore the world from, this clever yacht is one you can truly make your own.
