Benefitting from the award winning design and options which saw the Oceanis 38 achieve such huge success, the new Beneteau Oceanis 35 provides the redefinition of the Day Sailer, Weekender and Cruiser concept.
Allowing her owners to customise and create a boat to suit their current needs, she is then easily adapted as their sailing requirements or ambitions change. Her interior layout and design has been optimised to avoid any over equipping, with adaptable packs and numerous options on offer.
With sleek, well finished modular units - the three versions of this Oceanis provide all the options any owner could require. This functional interior system allows changes to fittings, units, galley, cabins and even bulkheads. This is a boat which evolves with her owners needs.
With a modular to suit everyone’s programme, the three versions of this Oceanis provide a Day Sailer which is a sociable and large uncluttered cockpit, with simplified elegance. As a Weekender she has integrated aft cabins which also offer the choice of a private fore cabin and fitted galley pack, while the Cruiser is easily converted into 2 or 3 cabins, creating private areas which benefit from a large linear saloon accommodating up to six people.
The Oceanis 35 has a modern chined hull running the full length of the boat, which offers enhanced performance, increased stiffness, reduced heel and optimises the interior space. She has a twin helm station for ease of use and twin rudders which are more responsive to the helm and particularly well suited to beamy hulls. An essential and key feature of the 35 is also her four large hull ports which offer a panoramic views of the sea, and long coaming windows.

When we ran into technical trouble and had to divert on our delivery trip to Cork the Ancasta team sourced a marine electronics engineer. What is exceptional about this is that they did it on a Sunday morning in the West Country and even paid for the callout charge. I was very impressed with their after sales support. .... "

The buying experience is excellent, by far the best that I have come across. This is both as regards the system, and the individuals who operate it. As one who comes from a consumer industry I would rate your team's performance as outstanding. .... "

I know that we have already thanked you all, but I would just like to reiterate it - we were very impressed with Ancasta, all your staff and the quality of service you gave us. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone - and, indeed, already have! We will certainly look in and say hello when we return to the Hamble later this year. You have a good product in the latest generation of Beneteaus! Regards MB. .... "
