Jeanneau 60 Under SailBy Katherine Stone, Canadian Yachting

For many, the 2020 sailing year will be one to go down into the books as “different”. With delayed boat launches, cancellations of regattas, flotillas, rendezvous and boat shows, everything was in flux. So, how does a boat reviewer do her job, well she gets creative! So, I contacted Catherine Guiader, North American Jeanneau sales manager, at their Annapolis location. 

At the Dusseldorf Boat Show (The BOOT), planned for January 2021, Jeanneau Yachts plans on unveiling a new strategic shift for the shipyard by replacing the hugely popular Jeanneau Yachts 58 (discontinued in 2019 with just over 170 sold) with the new Jeanneau Yachts 60. Hull #1 will be splashed in France in November 2020 – definitely a highlight for the boating industry. With an undeniable move to an upscale market, the new style will be incorporated into the rest of the 54 -64 range and feature a semi-custom personalization programme.

Jeanneau 60 SalonThe joint work of navel architect Philippe Briand and British designer Andrew Winch has produced a new, innovative style which highlights a high sheer line, integrated bowsprit, inverted bow and a sleek hull chine. Coupled with this is the longitudinal garage that will accommodate a 10-foot (2.9m) tender that can now be launched and hauled effortlessly. The options on and in the new hull and deck are formidable with an outdoor galley, releasable forestay, furling mast and/or a rollbar, hard top or spray hood. In essence you can easily have a boat adapted for lengthy blue water ambitions, or tailored down to a more casual, family oriented and sporty “Mediterranean” model. Briand has risen to the top of his field in the design of a sleek, fast hull and Winch adds his expertise with attention to detail and quality of fit and finish. 

So, let’s move inside and look at the possible new 19 layouts that highlight more volume! To make it easier, the Jeanneau Yachts 60 can be split into four living areas. Large hull ports let in copious amounts of natural light and provide excellent views while dining below. The use of solid wood, beautiful fabrics and leathers by Foglizzo blend together to provide an unbelievable feel of luxury. 

StateroomThe boat sails on its chine, allowing you to carry more sail before having to reef. 

The Jeanneau Yachts 60 could possibly be an owner’s dream-come-true, designed just for you to satisfy all your needs, wants, preferences and cruising desires. Although their target market has been 55 - 65 year-old clients, they are now finding that couples with younger, as well as older children are becoming more frequent owners.

As of yet we do not have a sail away price confirmed yet.

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54By Zuzana Prochazka

Beneteau saw an opportunity to add a little thrill to any cruising adventure, so they took the hull of the First 53 racer (introduced just last year), and with a few fashionable changes, created the Oceanis Yacht 54, the new entry-level of Beneteau’s swanky Oceanis Yacht line. The result is a performance cruiser that sails like a witch and looks like a grande dame.

Design

Roberto Biscontini is the naval architect and Lorenzo Argento created the details of the exterior and interior design.

Galvanic CorrosionIt’s a scary thought – but whether your boat is made of wood, fiberglass, aluminum or composite – it’s slowly deteriorating under you. Part of this is the nature of the marine environment: Sun, moisture, waves, wind, movement and vibration all contribute to components breaking down.

But there are other factors that are much more concerning and act at a significantly faster rate that the environment can take credit for. One of these is commonly spoken of, but not terribly well understood: Corrosion. As boaters, we’re concerned with two main types of corrosion: Galvanic and Stray-Current. This edition will focus on galvanic corrosion – in two weeks, stay tuned for info on stray-current.

Mia and Caleb's EngagementOn July 23 last year, CYOB published a piece on a beautifully restored 1967 Trojan 42 Motor Yacht in Oromocto NB. (That piece was also expanded in CY magazine later in the year.)

One of our Canadian Yachting contributors, Denise Miller, had shared the article on my social media and a young man reached out and asked if she could connect him with the owners of the boat, Dave and Barb. Denise leapt into action and Dave and Barb were thrilled. They concocted a plan that the young lady, Mia, thought she was coming to model for a sales brochure for Dave to do charter tours.
