THOUGHT IN THE LASTEST DETAILS TO ALWAYS MAKE ONE WITH THE SEA AND ITS CREW …
On a magnificent hull over 17 meters long, the tandem of architects Roberto Biscontini and Lorenzo Argento has endeavored to provide maximum comfort, fluidity in movement and maneuvering under sail, and high quality finishes. range. The Oceanis Yacht 54 paves the way for a new generation of cockpit-optimized cruisers with navigation aids, known as Easy Sailing. Through its design and its spaciousness, this new cruiser, easily manoeuvrable with a reduced crew, remains perfectly in the Oceanis DNA with the added attention to detail and the chosen materials which make it a true cruising yacht.
Arch, hull portholes, deckhouse shape and porthole, the markers of the BENETEAU cruising range are present. The high standard of finish and the omnipresent attention to detail on and below the deck add comfort and design to this 17m cruising yacht.
With a straight bow but with volume at the bow and a beam (5 meters) set back, the Oceanis Yacht 54 has a modern and perfectly balanced hull in order to provide maximum pleasure under sail. On the deck, and particularly around the cockpit, special attention has been paid to traffic so that nothing hinders the crew’s movements. The Oceanis Yacht 54 is indeed an evolution of the traditional center cockpit. It retains its advantages in terms of safety and movement, and innovates on level traffic. The ergonomics of the coamings and the correct height of the bulwark ensure optimal safety and significant comfort for the high seas. From the top of the companionway and its sunbathing areas, access to the transom remains intuitive between the two cockpit tables, then the two wheel helm stations, each equipped with a comfortable seat. Access to the sea is by going down to the spacious swim platform, which allows a 2.40 m long inflated tender to be stored under the cockpit. The Oceanis Yacht 54 is available in two draft versions (2.50 m as standard, 1.95 m as an option) and two types of masts (conventional or furling).
Let in as much light as possible while ensuring excellent ventilation, providing an atmosphere that is both warm and modern, this was the credo of the architect Lorenzo Argento. The numerous portholes and deck hatches, the layout with a chart table worthy of the name and a large saloon table that can easily accommodate six people make up the interior of the Oceanis Yacht 54 that the future owner can choose in light oak. or walnut. Two versions are available: three cabins and two shower rooms, or three cabins and three shower rooms with an XXL owner’s cabin on the front, which can be wrapped around the 1.60 m wide double bed.
FACILITATE AND SECURE NAVIGATION
To simplify both port maneuvers and changes of tack and gait, BENETEAU offers valuable navigation aids on the Oceanis Yacht 54. The Ship Control is therefore installed as standard. It allows you to control all of the boat’s data (batteries, tanks, engine, lighting, etc.) using a fun and intuitive interface. The Dock & Go, a widely proven technique, is also available to facilitate maneuvering with the engine in a small space: a simple joystick simultaneously controls a bow thruster and a 360 ° swivel saildrive base. Finally, it is possible to use the Harken AST system which adjusts the sails automatically according to the apparent wind and adjusts the jib when tacking. The AST is managed from a control screen in the cockpit. Reduced crew sailing is therefore an integral part of the boat’s program.
