After the excitement of the recent arrivals and handovers of their new Sense 50 and Sense 55, there was no stopping the owners of these yachts. They were straight into it!
The Beneteau Oceanis 35 — a sister ship to the company’s Oceanis 38, introduced last year — a boat with an unusual but incredibly well-imagined and executed interior plan from Nauta Design. It was so well done, actually, that it earned the boat top honors as the best Midsize Cruiser for 2015.
For many editions of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, Beneteau has represented the largest production brand presence. For the past five years, Beneteaus have won the IRC Division 3. In 2014, Beneteau had 12 yachts competing, cementing the brand’s race pedigree.
