In order to be called a true luxury performance offshore cruising catamaran, the width of the OE60’s hull has been carefully balanced for performance and splendid liveaboard comfort. Displacement, hull shape, and sail power are the key design features of an OE. The advanced hydrodynamic shape of the hull, designed by world renowned naval architect Germán Frers, utilizes the optimal length to beam ratio to minimize the wetted surface and deliver true performance. Instead of opting for fixed keels, a daggerboard configuration was chosen based on the advantages of providing lift, and lateral resistance versus drag. This design is also more efficient by providing outstanding upwind performance with the daggerboards down, and best performance with daggerboards up in a reaching or running sailing angle. Another advantage with the daggerboards up is that the draught is less than 80 cm, allowing you to sail and anchor in shallow waters unreachable to most.
You can’t talk high-performance sailing without talking about construction. Each yacht utilizes superior design, advanced engineering, and only the finest composite materials critical for the optimum strength to weight ratio. In keeping with the highest traditions of Finnish yacht building, each Ocean Explorer is handcrafted by an expert team of generational craftspeople.
Essential to any luxury yacht is the comfort, flow, utilization of space, and natural light of the interior design. With 360-degree vistas, superb ergonomics, and relaxing spaces, each interior is beautifully appointed, and custom finished to each owners’ personal tastes.
