Jeanneau Yachts 60

The Jeanneau shipyard‘s Yachts range includes luxury cruising boats, 55 feet and up. Within the range is the Jeanneau Yachts 60
, a cruising boat with XXL spaces that is easy to handle and has good sailing performance. The perfect boat for those who want maximum comfort on vacation.

Easy and comfortable navigation

In navigation the Jeanneau Yachts 60 performs very well, as we observed during our test, suffering perhaps only upwind. In fact, displacement (20,1700 kg), width (maximum beam of 5.20 meters) and draft (2.55 m) do not facilitate its performance. At wide swaths with winds around 20 knots, however, 10 knots of speed is easily exceeded. Certainly, however, this boat is not designed for those seeking high speed, but for those who want a highly customizable cruising yacht, including on deck.

In fact, the possibilities are many, just to give a few examples you can choose to have roll bars, hard top (a solution pioneered by Jeanneau already with the Sun Loft), sprayhood, outdoor galley, removable forestay, roll mainsail in the mast. Another key aspect of the boat is how easy it is to sail; the boat handles and steers smoothly with a small crew, even if it is only one or two people.

Jeanneau Yachts 60. Vacation in comfort

Inside, the Jeanneau Yachts 60 is revealed for its pure cruiser look, with XXL volumes for those looking for a comfortable cruising boat and high-end finishes. And as for the layout, among all the various combinations, you can have 19 different combinations, with 3, 4, 5 and even six cabins.

When we go below deck, we find that the space is ideally divided into four zones: forepeak and cabin area, salon and aft cabin area. We can choose to eliminate the forepeak and make a skipper’s cabin or a sixth cabin. The salon can be set up in three different manners: two armchairs and plenty of living space, sofa and chart table or cabin with bunk beds. Aft, on the other hand, you can choose to have the master cabin, in two different versions, or a double cabin and another triple cabin.
