Kingship introduces new Ocean SUV series
Kingship’s new Ocean SUV Series is a cross- over between a leisure yacht and an expedition yacht. The idea started from a desire to build a yacht combining safe, economical and long range capabilities yet offer high level of comfort, storage and practical interior layout making them suitable for world cruising without frequent stops to restock.
This unconventional design by Sergio Cutolo at Hydro Tec of Varazze, Italy is comparable with the functional characteristics of an SUV/4-wheel drive car. Only contrary to the “gas guzzling” car, they are extremely low in fuel consumption and can go a long distance without making frequent stops for refuel. They come in 3 sizes of 90’, 116’ and 150’and their range will be 5000 nm, 7500nm, and 9500nm respectively.
The uncluttered exterior is frill free, easy to maintenance and offers passengers a high vintage point from which to view the passing scenery. All space are highly practical and even the 90’ does not compromise on providing for 10 guests and 4 crews. The 116’ has a full- beam main- deck master for maximization of space and an internal elevator connecting all decks can be added as an option upon owner’s request for the series 116’ and 150’.
Extensive exterior and dining facilities can also be found on all decks for relaxation and entertainment. With Ocean SUV, adventure doesn’t have to mean roughing it. It is a yacht that combines luxury yacht styling with expedition yacht functionality, while minimizing maintenance requirements and keeping operating costs low.
The SUV 90’ will be classed RINA/ MGN 280 Code category 2 while SUV 116’ and SUV148’ will both in compliance with RINA/ MCA LY-2 unlimited.
