60 meters of what? If plain air, then it is quite possible - most likely you will need a slightly better antenna though than the stock one though (if any). For instance, with good antennas at both client and station, you can easily establish a connection over 150 meters of plain air. If 60 meters of houses (concrete + steel), then it is not very likely.

Best results are always obtained with a directional (rather than omni-directional) antennas, but these have to be positioned properly, which is a bit of a hassle (+ these are rather expensive, unless you make one yourself). It is also generally suggested to use 802.11n compatible wireless cards at both client and station, as these have a much wider cover area, especially in areas with buildings... 

Search the internet, see what's good for you. I would also suggest checking out these web-sites:

Hi. it is possible to boost the signal. I have a unit for sale at my villa in Paphos. It's range is up to 300 metres. It plugs in via USB connection and the antenna that is about 30cm long comes with a 5 metre lead and a fitting bracket.please email back if you are interested. RegardsHolty64
