The contemporary yet timelessly elegant 18-metre hull profile of the Oceanis Yacht 60 definitely echoes that of its 54-foot sister. A subtle interplay of proportions and a gentle reverse sheer creates the kind of space you typically find on a 62-footer, while retaining an elegant design and excellent sea-keeping abilities. These unique features result in a true bluewater yacht that offers outstanding performance yet is easy to short-hand.
OPTIMUM DESIGN FOR SMOOTH SAILING
The huge cockpit offers safe, free-flowing movement throughout. Wide side-decks run round the helm stations and offer a safe and obstacle free circulation to the fore deck. This unique layout reinvents the central cockpit concept.
Equipped sunbath with lifting backrest and integrated cup holders. The generous space at the cockpit allows placement of extra long sofa with comfortable backrest for a comfortable sailing experience. Electrical legs on both cockpit table are able to convert into large sunbathes. Dinning area are clear of lines without obstructing the view of the marine sea.
Although the two identical tables and sun-bathing areas are standard on Oceanis Yachts, special attention has been paid to the helm consoles. Accompanied by two real helm stations with extra-large steering wheels that makes controlling the boat’s course as easy as trimming the sails, windward or leeward. The console features a 12” touch screen, winch control on both sides, electrical throttle control, thruster controls, chain counter and auto pilot options that allows the owner to carry out all the usual manoeuvres without leaving the helm, this is a definite plus on a big boat when sailing short-handed.
An innovative bimini is supported by the mainsail arch, keeping sheets safe and out of the way, and comes in an optional rigid version. Maintained by two lateral supports, the central section slides forward to adjust the amount of cover in the cockpit. Depending on the weather and the time of day, the crew will always find the best compromise between protection and air flow.
And since cruising goes hand in hand with anchorages the large bathing platform provides a convenient access to the tender garage, a must for a boat this size, capable of housing a 2.8m/9’2” jet-propelled tender and life raft storage space. A system with double wires and guiding rollers makes for effortless launching and retrieval. The added steps from the swimming platform to the main deck provides a convenient access. Platform shower and water outlet are also equipped for a promising active stopover and lots of fun.
Lastly, onboard systems such as “Ship Control” and “Seanapps” respectively manage all the boat’s systems and make for effortless maintenance and monitoring, so that you can relax while you are cruising – and when you’re not.
STYLISH INTERIOR SPACE FOR SHARING IN GOOD COMPANY
You are met with a great deal of space and light as you go down the companionway, and an overall impression of volume, balanced proportions and high-end interior finish. The Oceanis Yacht 60’s galley is now positioned midship, where you are less likely to be bothered by movement, and it is full beam, with storage and a fridge to port, and a sink, oven and dishwasher to starboard. There is substantial storage space and worktop surfaces are ample.
The saloon layout provides a variety of spaces to enjoy company onboard; six people can sit comfortably around the table which faces a lounge area with a soft sofa, ideal for relaxing at sea or at anchor. And the curved chart table allows the skipper to swivel round and take part in conversations on board!
Available in a 3-cabin version with 3 heads, the Oceanis Yacht 60 comes with two different finishes: walnut as standard and light oak as an option. The craftsmen at BENETEAU, true to their long cabinetmaking tradition, devoted particular attention to the woodwork. Many moulded wood features blend harmoniously with large lacquered white surfaces and are matched with exclusive upholstery. Together they create a distinctly stylish atmosphere.
The most demanding owners will definitely love the master cabin. Once past the ensuite head, the space opens out onto a starboard bed, lined with extensive storage spaces. This guarantees privacy and at the same time offers a stunning view of the sea. The linings have been chosen carefully to create a feeling of hull depth in association with the portholes. The stretched fabric hugs the curved shapes of the coachroof and the hull to create perfect visual continuity inside this wonderfully relaxing luxurious space.
