Beneteau Launches New Flagship at the Annapolis Sailboat Show

Beneteau Oceanis 62

May 24, 2016

Beneteau announces the Americas premiere of the new Oceanis Yacht 62 at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, October 6-10 2016.

The first model of the Oceanis Yacht range stems from a collaboration between Beneteau, Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design and the Italian designer Pierangelo Andreani. Through this partnership, they are taking the 60-foot sailing yacht concept to another level, where space, light and design come together in unison to transform life at sea.

This new flagship is characterized by an eye-catching sporty line recognizable among thousands. Lined with large windows, she boasts a strikingly elegant profile. She is reassuring to handle and finds full expression in a chined hull, twin rudders and a sail plan that is perfectly balanced.

The Oceanis Yacht 62 optimizes outdoor living and entertaining with six sunbathing areas, an optional fully equipped aft galley with griddle and a spacious aft platform.

Below these ample spaces, noble materials and meticulous attention to details create a modern and bright atmosphere.
The innovative layout of the Oceanis Yacht 62 boasts a spacious salon and plenty of separate spaces for optimized privacy and comfort. Due to the large hull portholes, the lavish interior bathes in natural light, highlighting the exclusive woodwork finishes.

In either the 3- or 4-cabin configuration, the Oceanis Yacht 62 accommodates family and friends with all the comfort at sea you’ve come to expect from Beneteau.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
