MARION, SC: An increasing demand for larger, series built yachts which offer elegance at an exceptional value has lead to the development of Beneteau’s most recent additions, the Oceanis 50 and 58. These grand sailing craft introduce the fifth generation of the modern cruising range from the world’s top builder, and they launch a striking style which mates new design elements with sophisticated yet functional ideas.
“It delivers a new interpretation of comfort and luxury under sail!” Said Bruno Belmont, Sailing Development Manager at Beneteau, upon testing the boats in their initial sea trials, where the performance was confirmed as continuing the trends to deliver ever faster sailing speeds with greater stability than predecessors of similar size.
The Oceanis 50, crafted at Beneteau’s Marion, SC factory, will make its North American debut at the Miami Boat Show taking place February 11th-15th. And while there, or soon after the show, there will be limited sea trial availability in the sunny climes of Florida. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this latest generation of Beneteau and perhaps sail her in beautiful blue seas! The Oceanis 58, produced in France, just made her debut at European shows.
Beneteau USA, the American division of the world’s largest sailboat manufacturer, builds hundreds of 31-50 foot production sailboats in Marion, SC and imports power and sailing yachts up to 58 feet in length from its parent company in France.
