Overmarine launch new displacement model, Oceana 42, at MYS
By Ellie Brade
The exciting new design of the Oceana 42 is a departure from the fast open yacht designs that the yard is so known for, with the yard having identified the potential of the displacement market. "We see the displacement segment as an opportunity; while our open yachts are perfect for areas like the Med and Bahamas, for other parts of the world, being able to travel long range is important," said Francesco Freddiani, MD and Commercial Director. Key design influences included the ability to undertake a Trans-Atlantic crossing, comfort and quiet operation, together with a timeless and contemporary design. The result is a striking and spacious yacht, that also offers a diesel electric alternative should an owner so choose.
The yacht has an interior by Alberto Mancini who told the gathered press that in the design he blended strength and toughness with a softer side, all linked together with dynamic lines. The interior is light filled and makes use of steel and glass structures on every deck. The owners will be able to enjoy a full beam suite and other key features on board include an infinity pool in the bow. "There is good continuity between the interior and external spaces, and it is the perfect combination," said Mancini.
We will cover the design in more detail on SuperyachtDesign in the coming weeks.
