Beneteau will debut new boats at Annapolis sailboat show

The company said the Oceanis 35 and 38 models of the past have evolved into two new models for 2017 with redesigned interiors and exteriors.

In addition to the Oceanis Yacht 62, Beneteau said it will introduce two other new sailboat models — the Oceanis 35.1 and Oceanis 38.1 — at the Oct. 6-10 U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis.

The company said the Oceanis 35 and 38 models of the past have evolved into two new models for 2017 with redesigned interiors and exteriors. The new cruisers offer a choice between a standard mast and a carbon mast and can come with or without a furling drum.

Beneteau said a new L-shaped galley on the port side of the 45-degree companionway provides a seating salon arrangement that has room for eight around the table.

"Beneteau has proven once again that we listen to our customers and dealers to make exceptional boats even better," Beneteau sailboat division director of sales Chris Doscher said in a statement.

"Our open lines of communication and innovative building techniques have enabled us to do what many thought impossible, to build an even better Oceanis 35 and 38.”
