Wellcraft prepares the debut of the Wellcraft 355. What’s new? Everything! This new 10-metre Wellcraft powerboat is an outboard cruiser offering excellent performance and cruising comfort even at high speeds. The market it targets is clearly the one that Axopar is currently dominating with its “adventure boats”. The American brand, part of the Beneteau Group, relies on its great experience in terms of offshore units to create a versatile, fast and very seaworthy boat.

Expanding into a new market is never easy. Wellcraft has an industrial giant such as Beneteau on its side and a long design process to arrive at the first Wellcraft 355. Important names in design such as Pawel Denert and Camillo Garroni have collaborated on the development of this powerboat, in synergy with a hull guru such as the American naval architect Michael Peters. The goal? To create a boat capable of handling any type of sea, as comfortable as an owner expects from a boat of this type. Anticipated at the Cannes Boat Show 2021, the boat can be now shown in detail.

Wellcraft 355 – Deck

The bow houses a two-seater sundeck offset by a seat that characterizes this area as a relaxation area. On the sides of the aft cockpit, on the other hand, there are two side openings that simplify access to the boat, since there are three outboards aft. The yard focuses strongly on the connection between the wheelhouse and the cockpit both through the window on the right and a door on the left.

Inside there is an L-shaped sofa with table behind the wheelhouse and a galley in front with various storage spaces. The helm station accommodates two people close together and a sliding side door on the helm provides convenient access to the side passage and front cockpit.

Below deck there is a forward cabin with a double bed and private head with separate shower. A total of up to four people can sleep on board.

“To go anywhere” says the yard when talking about this boat. Wellcraft promises to exceed 50 knots with three Mercury or Yamaha engines providing up to 1,050 HP. If Michael Peters is involved, one can be optimistic about the hull’s success.
