New Wellcraft 355
It is truly different from anything that has made the Wellcraft name. It’s the birth of a new line of Scandinavian style performance cruisers. I must admit that it reminds me of the AXOPAR. The American manufacturer Wellcraft was acquired by the Beneteau Group in 2014.
According to preliminary information, it promises a lot. A concept that will certainly appeal to adventurous boaters who are ready to take on more rugged sailing conditions but still respect the limits that a 35′ boat allows.
It will be very powerful with its three 350 hp outboard motors (Yamaha or Verado).
Its interior promises to be luxurious and very functional. There will be a cabin that can accommodate 4 people to sleep (1 bedroom + the lower table) with a toilet with a separate shower section.
For now this is what we know about this new WellCraft 355.

Here is how the manufacturer describes it:
The Wellcraft 355 takes the lead in every aspect of its existence – without sacrificing aesthetics, comfort, or most importantly, speed and stability. Designed to push the limits – out past the horizon where the water is deep and adventure begins – Wellcraft utilized its rich heritage of offshore experience to push into this new market with American flare and shameless enthusiasm.
Every inch of the Wellcraft 355 has been designed to the highest standards. Wellcraft partnered with Michael Peters to create a design to offer a fast and sea-worthy American outboard commuter for those looking to push their boat further and faster. As one of the most renowned yacht designers, and one of the few in the world with expertise in metal, composite, and wood construction, the Wellcraft 355 design includes a dual reinforced hull offering stability and control in even the toughest of conditions.
The Wellcraft 355 allows boaters to combine the thrill of speed and the ability to discover unexplored places with a lifestyle of relaxation and luxury. The spacious wheelhouse provides comfort for five while cruising along, with three seats in the cockpit for support during more challenging navigation. A door at the helm grants convenient communication between the front and rear cockpits while the two large side doors enable access to the either side of the transom. Three large forward-facing sunbathers in the bow are covered in specialized fabric to maintain surface temperatures in even the strongest of sunlight. Spacious storage lockers with drainage, comfortable bench seats, and a removable table welcomes guests to enjoy time afloat. Tucked within the hull of the Wellcraft 355, is a full ensuite inclusive of cozy seating, plenty of storage, a plush queen-sized bed, and a three-piece bathroom with separate shower. The Wellcraft 355 also offers multiple aft options to personalize your performance yacht.
This all-new 36-foot performance and adventure boat is ready to push the limits and will make its debut at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in October 2022.
