Oceanis Yachts 62 Deep draft

Sailboat specifications

The Oceanis Yachts 62 is a 59’6” (18.13m) cruising sailboat designed by Berret Racoupeau Yachts Design (France). She is built since 2016 by Bénéteau (France). The Deep draft version displays a T-shaped keel, synonym of low center of gravity and reduced weight. She has been awarded "2017 - European Yacht of the Year: Luxury Cruiser".

The Oceanis Yachts 62 is as well listed, on, in Shoal draft version (see all the versions compared).

    Oceanis Yachts 62's performances

    Upwind sail area to displacement
     iThe ratio sail area to displacement is obtained by dividing the sail area by the boat's displaced volume to the power two-thirds.

    The ratio sail area to displacement can be used to compare the relative sail plan of different sailboats no matter what their size.

    Upwind: under 18 the ratio indicates a cruise oriented sailboat with limited performances especially in light wind, while over 25 it indicates a fast sailboat.
    215 ft²/T20 m²/T
    Downwind sail area to displacement
     iThe ratio sail area to displacement is obtained by dividing the sail area by the boat's displaced volume to the power two-thirds.

    The ratio sail area to displacement can be used to compare the relative sail plan of different sailboats no matter what their size.
    481 ft²/T44.66 m²/T
    Displacement-length ratio (DLR)
     iThe Displacement Length Ratio (DLR) is a figure that points out the boat's weight compared to its waterline length. The DLR is obtained by dividing the boat's displacement in tons by the cube of one one-hundredth of the waterline length (in feet).
    The DLR can be used to compare the relative mass of different sailboats no matter what their length:

    a DLR less than 180 is indicative of a really light sailboat (race boat made for planning), while a DLR greater than 300 is indicative of a heavy cruising sailboat.
    Ballast ratio
     iThe Ballast ratio is an indicator of stability; it is obtained by dividing the boat's displacement by the mass of the ballast. Since the stability depends also of the hull shapes and the position of the center of gravity, only the boats with similar ballast arrangements and hull shapes should be compared.

    The higher the ballast ratio is, the greater is the stability.
    23 %
    Critical hull speed
     iAs a ship moves in the water, it creates standing waves that oppose its movement. This effect increases dramatically the resistance when the boat reaches a speed-length ratio (speed-length ratio is the ratio between the speed in knots and the square root of the waterline length in feet) of about 1.2 (corresponding to a Froude Number of 0.35) . This very sharp rise in resistance, between speed-length ratio of 1.2 to 1.5, is insurmountable for heavy sailboats and so becomes an apparent barrier. This leads to the concept of "hull speed".
    The hull speed is obtained by multiplying the square root of the waterline length (in feet) by 1.34.
    10.26 knots
