Beneteau goes to a powerboat designer to find a new look for the first of its new range of luxury cruisers. Toby Hodges reports
Note the title ‘Oceanis Yachts’ 62. I missed it at first, assuming this was a new flagship for Beneteau’s traditional Oceanis range. But no, this 62-footer represents the first of a new luxury range of Beneteaus from 53-73ft, which employs an industrial approach to provide an unbeatable end price for a large yacht.
You’ll notice the 62 has a certain Italian flair to it for a French yacht. This is perhaps because Oceanis Yachts’ co-designer and Beneteau’s new sailing director are both Italian. The design and styling was a collaborative approach between Berret Racoupeau and the Italian designer Pierangelo Andreani.
