Canadian studio Bray Yacht Design and Research has revealed its latest superyacht design for a Miami-based client: the 30.5-metre motor yacht Ocean Condo. Built with an aluminium hull and superstructure, the yacht has been designed to be “tailored to the lifestyle of an urbanite.” Photo: Bray Yacht DesignThe top deck houses the owner’s apartment and provides direct access to the sky lounge and a private deck through sliding glass doors located port and starboard. On the main deck, which can be accessed via a staircase or an elevator, the main saloon is situated, as well as a formal dining room and galley where guests can pass through to the aft section to enjoy alfresco dining or outdoor entertainment.

Two large staterooms, located on the main deck, and two additional guest cabins on the lower deck provide her luxurious guest accommodation. For the vessel's interiors, American walnut cabinetry and light cream carpets would be fitted throughout, with leather seating found on all furniture.Photo: Bray Yacht DesignForward of the yacht, the mechanical compartments include electrical cabinets that house the batteries and hybrid propulsion monitoring systems. These are directly accessible to crew members from the two crew compartments. The aft engine room simultaneously acts as a garage and can fit a compact electric car that can be brought to the pier using the landing craft. Photo: Bray Yacht Design
The Ocean Condo yacht is designed with the environment in mind and would be driven by hybrid propulsion. Silent electric power would move the vessel along at six knots making her ideal for harbour and river cruising. For faster speeds and extended cruising, twin 625 HP diesel engines with underwater exhausts would power her to a maximum speed of 16 knots, with a range of up to 1840 nautical miles at 14 knots. In addition, solar cells covering the entire top deck would also serve to extend the time between generator runs.
