40m Ocean King Genesia launched

Written by Charl van Rooy

Earlier this week, Italian shipyard Cantieri Navali Chioggia launched its flagship vessel in its explorer line of yachts – the Ocean King 130 named Genesia. The Venetian shipyard managed to reach this stage of construction a mere 20 months after having signed the build contract. Genesia will be on display at the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show in September later this year.

Built as a self-sufficient world cruiser, the Ocean King 130 carries an incredible 200,000 litres of fuel which gives her a range of 9,500 nm at a speed of 9 knots. Her tug-like appearance and robust naval platform will deliver excellent seakeeping capabilities when things get rough out at sea. Her heavy duty CAT engines deliver a top speed of 14 knots at full speed.

On deck, her 125 square metres of upper deck space is designed to carry an array of various watersports toys and underwater equipment. It is here where her 8-metre tender will be stowed.

She accommodates 10 guests in four cabins, all of which are located on the lower deck and includes a master, a VIP, and two twin cabins. The main and upper deck each has its own saloon area.

"Genesia is a dream come true for us,” commented her owner at the launch ceremony. “She is the synthesis of power, safety and comfort and we are delighted to have met a great team of professionals at Cantieri Navali Chioggia who understands what we were looking for and worked at keeping with every detail, making technical innovations as well.”
