The Oceanis 55 is undoubtedly a gorgeous, stylish and comfortable luxury charter yacht. Besides being big and comfortable and good looking, this latest Oceanis from designer Berret Racoupeau is a hoot to sail. When the puffs come on, hard chines that carry aft from well forward of the mast dig in to keep the boat upright and tracking straight, while twin rudders give you lots of feedback at either of the two helms.
Down below, you’ll be struck by the amount of volume that the 16-plus feet of beam, carried aft from the main bulkhead, creates. It’s massive. Designed by Nauta Design, the interior has had particular attention made to making this boat feel cozy inside and quite versatile. All interior bulkhead surfaces are covered in Alpi wood or in designer fabrics, which is stylish and modern. There’s a huge amount of light flowing into the whole saloon as well, with 8 portlights in addition to side windows in the trunk cabin, three deck hatches forward, and numerous sky lights both large and small on top of the coach roof.
There are five cabins + a separate skipper’s cabin on this yacht. They are laid out with two doubles aft, two doubles forward, and a bunk cabin that is accessible on the starboard side at the rear of the saloon. There are three bathrooms, plus the skipper has their own bathroom in their cabin. All the beds are large and comfortable
Bowing to the notion that a lot of time is spent topside, the cockpit on the 55 occupies roughly a third of the length of the boat. From the dock, you step aboard across a large swim platform and then pass between the helms to reach the lounging area: two full-length cushioned benches to either side of a four-leaf teak cockpit table. Forward of the main cockpit arch there are two more cushioned sunbeds to either side of the. Raised, the swim platform folds in on itself to make a cockpit-wide helm seat.
All in all the Oceanis 55 is a fantastic charter yacht that will appeal to all charterers. Whether you’re a group, family or skippered charter, you’ll love the luxurious appointments, style and comfort afforded by this stunning yacht.
