Beneteau America will launch its new flagship, the Oceanis 60, at the 2015 Strictly Sail Miami boat show in February.

The world premiere of the Oceanis 60 came in September in Cannes, France, in September. The yacht is characterized by an open deck plan and spacious accommodations.

Unique in its dimensions and sun platform concept, the cockpit extends beyond the two steering wheels. This new living space offers views to the sea and endows the Oceanis 60 with the largest cockpit a boat her size has ever seen, according to the company.

The hull of the Oceanis 60 is by Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design. The interior comes in a three- or four-cabin configuration.

The Oceanis 60 will be on display Feb. 12-16 at Strictly Sail Miami, Miamarina at Bayside. The press will have an opportunity to sea-trial the Oceanis 60 after the show.
