You could use Settings -> Configure console, then create new sessions,
one for each different ssh connection. Start all of the sessions (they
are in the sessions menu), then use Settings -> Save Sessions Profile.

To start this session profile, use "konsole --profile your_profile".

If you don't want to click around to add 60 sessions, look in
~/.kde/share/apps/konsole/profiles/ and edit your profile there. If you
already have some sessions there it is easy to add the remaining ones,
just dont't forget to increase numSes as well. You could even write a
script to read your hostnames from a file.
