Oceanis 35Beneteau America announces the U.S. premiere of the all-new Oceanis 35 at the upcoming Annapolis Sailboat Show, October 9-13 2014.  The Oceanis 35 is being introduced on the heels of the world-acclaimed Oceanis 38, which made its debut last fall and was awarded European Yacht of the Year 2014 along with Best Boat 2014 in the U.S. by the publishers of SAIL magazine. The Oceanis 35 is designed to offer the same elegance and level of customization as the Oceanis 38, but in a sailboat under 35 feet.

“The success of the Oceanis 38 prompted our product development team to revisit the concept of customization over time to a smaller model that would fulfill the sailing dreams of a broader audience,” commented Chris Doscher, sailboat sales manager for Beneteau America. “The new Oceanis 35 represents an incredible accomplishment, in terms of space optimization, comfort and sailing performance,” added Doscher. “It has already grabbed the attention of our dealers who first saw the boat during the Global
Dealer Meeting earlier this month. We’re hopeful the Oceanis 35 will become a new reference as a versatile and highly capable cruiser.”

Taking up the appealing idea of a ‘three-in-one’ cruising boat, the Oceanis 35 is a cruiser that can be adapted to her owner’s sailing lifestyle with three starting configurations from which to choose: Daysailer, Weekender or Cruiser. The ability to further customize the boat over the years by adding or removing certain components of the boat is carried over from the 38: examples include stowage, seating, bulkhead and galley equipment. In a conscious effort to fit the owner’s preference, the new Oceanis 35 is available with an optional lifting keel. The arch and swim platform are also optional with all three versions.

Beneteau has revamped inclusions in the base model of each configuration to provide sailors even more features as ‘standard.’
• The daysailer offers more stowage in the saloon, an opening chart table and compatible mooring pack.
• The weekender features integrated aft cabins as standard with wooden hanging lockers, but also stowage in the saloon and a water heater. This configuration retains the essential packs such as fitted galley, electricity and mooring pack.
• The cruiser offers even more choices of configurations.

Created in 1986, the Oceanis range continues to grow and evolve to meet the needs of all sailors.
