Beneteau 62: This Sailing Yacht Will Make You Rethink Getting A Motor Yacht
A sailing yacht neither restrained nor limited by its slender frame.
We’ve all been on our fair share of motor yachts. The vibrations on the deck to the dull hum of the engines seem pretty much what we’d expect while sailing. But this wasn’t always the case and with the Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 62, this might not be for you ever again.
The Oceanis Yacht 62 straddles the line between a luxury cruising yacht and a traditional sailing yacht. Bringing together the best of both worlds, the ship sits in a class of its own. The Oceanis Yacht 62 is just over 19m in length and features a slender profile characteristic of traditional sail boats. But, unlike traditional boats, it was designed to be as luxurious and spacious as recreational motor yachts.
This model of ship by Beneteau was designed by architect Olivier Racoupeau and Italian designer Pierangelo Andreani. Featuring a low centre of gravity and an optimised length of the water, the Oceanis Yacht 62 is highly nimble and easy to sail compared to other sailboats in its class. It also comes in two different draught depths: 2.98m and 2.38m.
Its interiors are also something to write home about. If you’re thinking of buying a boat, Beneteau offers a range of customisation services. The premium Service Custom Department will take you through all the woodwork, upholstery, fittings, rigging and colour options available to you, and help you create a sailing yacht that matches your exacting standards. You’ll also be able to check on the progress of your yacht during production visits at the shipyard.
