The Oceanis 60 brings us the eagerly anticipated developments to the traditional Oceanis 58 and with it, the four key features which completely set this model aside from any potential competition. A tender space designed specifically for easy handling below the lounge area, which is home to an aluminium hull RIB. An aft cockpit extension providing an attractive lounging area aft of the helm stations and the choices and options of new interior and exterior finishes.
Although the interior layout remains the same as her sister the 58, you can now enjoy the ultimate in spacious luxury with a new range of finishes and optional equipment, including Commando Chess interior upholstery, pure brown carpet and Anthracite Grey inner lining in the saloon. The Oceanis 60 is flooded with natural daylight and with her sleek lines and trademark large saloon windows, she combines everything that is best about Beneteau and draws her inspiration from the super yachts.
The Oceanis 60’s new cockpit extension increases the exterior living space considerably and offers a fantastic and convivial lounging area near the helmsman. Situated neatly below the lounge is the garage, in which the tender fits perfectly. Owners are also presented with the choice of a stainless steel dolphin nose with built in ground tackle and bobstay, which immediately gives the boat a very elegant profile. This can be beautifully finished with metallic paint for the mainsail arch to provide a perfect match with the hull.

When we ran into technical trouble and had to divert on our delivery trip to Cork the Ancasta team sourced a marine electronics engineer. What is exceptional about this is that they did it on a Sunday morning in the West Country and even paid for the callout charge. I was very impressed with their after sales support. .... "

The buying experience is excellent, by far the best that I have come across. This is both as regards the system, and the individuals who operate it. As one who comes from a consumer industry I would rate your team's performance as outstanding. .... "

I know that we have already thanked you all, but I would just like to reiterate it - we were very impressed with Ancasta, all your staff and the quality of service you gave us. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone - and, indeed, already have! We will certainly look in and say hello when we return to the Hamble later this year. You have a good product in the latest generation of Beneteaus! Regards MB. .... "
