Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 60: the “Made in Italy” flagship.
There’s an Italian hand in the new Oceanis Yacht 60 that Beneteau is about to launch, with the return of the Biscontini-Argento duo already starring with the First Yacht 53 and Oceanis Yacht 54. And on the new 60, already from the external silhouette, we see their style again, which is in continuity with the last models they designed, a sign of how the two Italian designers are shaping Beneteau’s new range.

In fact, the new Oceanis Yacht 60 has a deckhouse reminiscent of the one inaugurated with the First 53, low and with a gentle line well integrated on the deck, characterized by the long side windows. The stern is the one with soft shapes and a raised knee on the water, which will go underwater when the boat is heeled, increasing its buoyancy. And then there is the cockpit organization, with covers (bimini and sprayhood) that make the area an outdoor area that is always usable. The rollbarr acts as a mainsail sheet point for those who do not like to have clutter in the cockpit while cruising. A boat that thus becomes the new flagship of the Yach line for luxury sailing. And the attention to detail that distinguishes this line, such as the forward master cabin with a bed with heads towards the stern, or the ever-present aft garage that will house the tender. A superyacht though with an Italian style, elegant with design by Lorenzo Argento and, with the water lines are by Roberto Biscontini, it promises to have interesting performance while being a pure cruising boat.
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…
