Beneteau America announced the U.S. premiere of the new Oceanis 35 at the upcoming Annapolis Sailboat Show, which runs Oct. 9-13.

The Oceanis 35 is being introduced on the heels of the Oceanis 38, which made its debut last fall and was awarded the European Yacht of the Year 2014, along with Best Boat 2014 in the United States by the publishers of Sail magazine.

(Sail magazine and Soundings Trade Only are both owned by Active Interest Media.)

“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,” Beneteau America sailboat sales manager Chris Doscher said in a statement.

“The new Oceanis 35 represents an incredible accomplishment, in terms of space optimization, comfort and sailing performance,”Doscher added. “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.”
