Boréal 55.2

Boréal 55.2 : A new hull for more space, comfort and performance.

Boréal 55.2 is the natural evolution of Boréal 52, 55 and 55 OC.

This new model has benefited from all the experience of the previous models and the improvements made to the Boréal 70 to ensure comfortable, long-distance sailing.

A new hull designed by JF Delvoye. The challenge was to improve without compromising the essential principles of the Boréal concept.

  • The ergonomics of the cockpit with two steering columns:

Sitting behind the bars on a curved seat

Standing on a reclining support at the gite

Sitting sideways on a reclining seat with the helm between your legs.

  • Accessibility for manoeuvres : The helmsman has a dedicated ‘navigation’ area that is completely separate from the ‘relaxation’ area.

  • Visibility when sailing: the Boreal principle is that the helmsman can see the anchor in the davit from any position.

  • Safety at the helm and when manoeuvring: thanks to the forward position of the steering columns.

  • A deck saloon offering an ‘exceptional’ view of the outside and interior fittings that provide even more space, fluidity and comfort.


  • The cockpit’s ‘living space’ has been considerably enlarged, and the outside circulation is much smoother. The door has been moved to starboard and the cockpit has been reorganised to create an obstacle-free passageway from the inside of the boat to the bathing platform.
  • A large fold-down bathing platform provides easy access to the sea.
  • A large sunbathing area aft of the helm stations provides immense storage space under the floor.

And of course :

  • We’re keeping our dog house equipped with a seat for two and a waxing cupboard.
  • The layout has evolved from that of the Boréal 52 55 and 55 OC.
