A versatile boat that should be comfortable in most conditions

The new Beneteau Oceanis 60 builds on the lines and concepts that have proven to be so successful in the rest of the 9-boat Oceanis fleet which starts at 31' (9.45 m). But there is nothing quite like a 60' (18.29 m) vessel with a navy blue hull...

A flagship in the truest sense of the word

The new flagship of Beneteau’s ever-expanding range, the Oceanis 60 is a development of the Oceanis 58. She sports an aft deck and a tender garage with an electric fold-down transom and swim platform to enclose it. Beyond that, the Oceanis 60 is simply a spectacular boat, well suited to passage making, a boisterous daysail or lounging about on the hook on a sunny day.

The hull is a solid polyester laminate with an internal sub-frame hull liner bonded in place to stiffen and support the floor and internal structure...

The morning we set off from Miamarina at Miami’s Bayside after the Strictly Sail Miami boat show in February, the trade winds were blowing a steady 10 to 12 knots and white puffy clouds were trundling in from the Bahamas. It was a perfect morning to go sailing and to put the brand new Beneteau 60 through her paces.

We folded up the huge swim platform aft and then backed out of the slip. The big boat backed easily and turned sharply in reverse...

Should attract both coastal and blue-water sailors

There is simply no arguing the fact that longer waterlines mean faster cruising miles, so, when considering your big trip, the Beneteau Oceanis 60 is a strong contender. The proven Berret Racoupeau hull is now approaching the 100 mark for numbers sold and Beneteau sensibly didn’t try to fix something that wasn’t broken; it simply improved on it, as I found out when sailing it off Majorca.
