The prolific Beneteau family of sailboats, ranging in size from the diminutive First 14 to the stately Oceanis 51.1, ventures into the 60-plus-foot realm with the new Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 62. The product of a partnership between Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design and Italian stylist Pierrangelo Andreani, the Oceanis Yacht 62 has modern European racer/cruiser written all over it. Now available in the Pacific Northwest, odds are more than a few of these will be sighted on our waters.
Firstly, you’re going to recognize the familiar Oceanis look: sloop rig, plumb bow, fin keel with bulb, sleek above-water profile, wide beam, tricked out transom, etc. On the ultra-modern score, a window ribbon integrated into the hull almost completely encircles the whole yacht, letting in the light below and looking great in the process.
The flat, beamy deck also maximizes the fun factor with a forward padded sun lounge, a massive cushy cockpit (near the dual helms), and even more padded seating at the transom. The transom is pretty slick, for it not only features a fold-down swim platform, but also a complete tender garage, which is very impressive for a 62-footer. Easy sailing and good times are clearly the aim here.
The interior keeps up that quality of life emphasis with two staterooms aft, bunk berths, and master stateroom forward. Options play with differing numbers of bunk berths and enclosed heads. The salon is simply huge, in part thanks to the innovative, completely concealable, fitted galley to starboard. This ninja kitchen has it all: large sink, refrigerator, ice maker, microwave, oven, dishwasher, wine cellar, stowage, and more.
