Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 62 sold into HK
The French builder’s flagship sailboat has been sold into Hong Kong by long-time dealer Simpson Marine.
The Oceanis Yacht 62 will become Hong Kong’s biggest Beneteau
Simpson Marine has sold an Oceanis Yacht 62 into Hong Kong, where it will arrive late in the year and become the biggest of the brand’s 200-plus boats in the city. Featuring naval architecture by Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design, Beneteau’s flagship sailboat has an overall length of 62ft 10in, a clean deck, chined hull, twin rudders for better control and a balanced sail plan.
The fold-out transom offers access to a 3.5m tender garage
The transom opens to create a large swim platform that accesses the 3.5m by 1.7m dinghy garage, which Beneteau believes is the biggest among similarly sized yachts. Six sun beds are distributed between the stern, cockpit, coach roof and foredeck (double sun bed with lights and speakers built in).
The interior has a long galley to starboard and chart table to port
The interior styling by Andrea Design is modern and clean, featuring luxurious materials and exclusive woodwork. The layout is centred around a spacious saloon bathed in light by large hull windows and skylights, while a long galley lines the starboard side.
The saloon features a height-adjustable, expandable table
The forward en-suite owner’s cabin has a large island bed and can accommodate an office. Two similar-sized guest cabins are aft, the starboard version with private en-suite while the port cabin has direct access to the day head.
The spacious owner’s suite is in the bow
Headquartered in Hong Kong, Simpson Marine has represented Beneteau since 1985 and has 100 staff in seven countries and territories around Asia. The dealer organised the first Beneteau Cup Hong Kong in May, while a First Yacht 53 and Oceanis Yacht 54 are scheduled to arrive in Hong Kong in June.
