The Bénéteau Oceanis Yacht 60 is no ordinary sailing yacht, but draws its DNA from the same source as the very large sailing yachts of Scandinavian origin.
When viewed from the stern, the helm stations look almost small compared to the 5.30 meter overall width of the boat.
The powerful 18-meter hull, designed by Roberto Biscontini and Lorenzo Argento, the authors of the very successful Oceanis Yacht 54, is reminiscent of its little brother, but it is even longer.
Still a sailor with its wide side decks, access to which is at the same level as the cockpit, and all the controls that belong to the helmsman, no matter which side he is on, the Oceanis Yacht 60 has electric winch controls that fall perfectly to hand.
The large rear swim platform features a tender garage capable of holding a 2.8 meter tender.
A large yacht interior combining conviviality and refinement
Inside, the galley and the chart table, of a size specific to a vessel of this size, are located forward, in the center of gravity of the yacht, while a lounge with its soft sofas is located on the starboard side, in front of the saloon, thus forming four convivial spaces.
Three cabins and their bathrooms allow each guest to have their own privacy, creating a unique and delicate universe.
The fabrics and upholstery follow the curves of the roof and provide a soothing visual continuity to this beautiful yacht.
