Making it the fourth addition to the sites along the French Atlantic Coast, OCEA shipyard has announced the opening of its new facilities in Les Sables d’Olonne that will be able to build up to 85m. spoke with Jean-Michel Flour, from the yacht department at OCEA, he said, “The notable benefit of this expansion is the increase of the maximum size of the yachts OCEA can build, now up to 85m. Otherwise the activity will be unchanged.”

He added that “One contract has been signed in March 2015 for a 29.9m commuter yacht,” which will be constructed at the new site.

Flour explained that nothing was to change business wise apart from their capabilities to build larger yachts, “OCEA has been building yachts since 2000 and there have been no noticeable recent changes commercially.”
