We have then pushed forward the superstructure so to have an extremely voluminous aft space which will allow the guests to enjoy a versatile multifunctional area.”A full displacement superyacht built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure - as is typical for Ocean King vessels - the Ducale 118 was designed to achieve an elegant and timeless look on a solid platform and to offer a modern and distinctively Italian style.
With her generous interior volumes of 402 GT, she offers a five cabin interior layout with a full-beam master stateroom on the main deck which incorporates an office, and an upper deck with separate captain's quarters aft of the wheelhouse. A crew of seven is also accommodated for on board.

With the tender storage on the aft deck, an enclosed tender garage is unnecessary and larger tender models can also be accommodated. When the tenders and toys are removed, the deck is transformed into a grand beach club area which can be covered by a removable sun awning or left open to enjoy alfresco evenings under the stars.

With the addition of the Ducale 118 to the Ducale series, we can offer to our customers a completely different type of Explorer Yacht. One that they can be absolutely assured of the strength and ruggedness and long-range ocean cruising capability that all Ocean Kings are known for.”Photo: Ocean King
