Living Luxuriously on the Ocean with Beneteau’s Flagship Oceanis Yacht 60

Beneteau’s new Oceanis Yacht 60 flagship sailing model has already attracted a considerable amount of attention in Asia.

Roberto Biscontini and Lorenzo Argento, both Italian designers, collaborated on the design of this new yacht. Beneteau has been introducing new models into the Oceanis Yacht series, including the Oceanis Yacht 54 and 62. The Oceanis Yacht 60 has an even more elegant design with a modern, imposing stature. Early sales to Taiwan by Simpson Marine indicate that this yacht is becoming popular among sailors in the region.

Performance and Design

The hull design of the Oceanis Yacht 60 is also from the drawing board of Italian Roberto Biscontini, who designed the First 53, the biggest model in the First range. The yacht’s balance under sail creates freedom for the yachtsman, allowing for superb average speeds without the need for a great racer or even pushing the yacht. The moderate angle of heel on all points of sail creates an impression of safety and serenity that defines a yacht. The yacht is designed to meet the specific requirements of Asian sailors.

Introducing the new Oceanis Yacht 60


The cockpit of the Oceanis Yacht 60 is designed to provide easy circulation with its wide deck, making it simple to move around, even for short distances. The hydraulic gangway makes stepping aboard a breeze. Lorenzo Argento, the Italian interior and exterior designer, has created modular relaxation areas that can be used in any situation. A central cockpit is located under the rigid bimini, and two tables can seat up to 10 people for dining. The tables can also be lowered at the touch of a button to become a lounger. There are two further sun loungers located in this space under the retractable roof, while there are two more forward of the mast. A beautiful aft deck completes the relaxation areas, which avoid any mixing with the sailing zones.


The gentle, wide companionway leads down to a very spacious interior, which includes a saloon, dining area, and central galley. The three en-suite and bathrooms are located at the ends of the boat. The interior can be fitted out in walnut for a very intimate atmosphere or in oak for a brighter effect. The layout has been designed to make every move smooth and easy. The semi-circular chart table and its bucket seat allow the owner to enjoy life on board with friends. The full-width galley is separated into two zones, with comprehensive work areas and equipment. Each cabin has its bathroom with a separate shower. A door from the saloon transforms one of the aft cabin bathrooms into a toilet for day guests.

Owner’s Suite

The owner’s suite forward is very spacious and bright, with four hatches in the deck. Its forward-facing island bed is forward of the en-suite bathroom and away from prying eyes, reinforcing the private aspect of the yacht, while the storage space includes a full wardrobe.

Comfort and Convenience

These living areas and storage spaces contribute to the comfort expected on a larger yacht. The yacht’s equipment includes a 230V/115V power supply, hydraulic swim platform, and tender garage. The tender garage is easily accessible and can accommodate a 2.9m tender. The yacht’s generator is housed in a separate soundproof compartment, which reduces noise and vibration levels. The yacht’s navigation system is integrated with the help of an autopilot and navigation software, enabling the captain to control the yacht with ease.
