Oceanis Yacht 60

The lure of the great outdoors is a theme of endless literature and just as much cinema, and great sailing falls more than ever under this sphere, where Beneteau’s new Oceanis Yacht 60 presents itself as the answer, a suitable boat to comfortably accompany during such adventures.

With its 18.8-m LOA, streamlined water lines, the new sixty-footer in the Oceanis Yacht range is, in fact, an excellent blend of comfort, safety and performance.

A hull that therefore promises to know a lot, blending in itself both safety and speed capabilities. The deck is then particularly clean, free of all superfluous clutter and well protected, as is the cockpit, free of rigging, which runs all hidden, until it returns to the two helm stations, from which, virtually, the entire boat can be managed.

Further influencing the safety-comfort front is the structural roll-bar, which not only supports the mainsail luff, thus removing it from passing areas, but also supports two different types of bimini in different configurations,thus offering protection against any weather situation.

Finally, peculiar is the inclusion of a step on the deck, as is also the case on the 54, a solution that, however, allows a considerable raising of the vaults in the forward cabin, resulting in a more comfortable and spacious…
