Whilst at the Cannes Yachting Festival last week, SuperYacht Times’ Merijn de Waard had the chance to attend the sea-trials of hull #1 in the new line of explorer vessels from Oceanic Yachts, the Oceanic Yachts 90’ STS. The philosophy of the line is extended outdoor and indoor living volumes, the ability to carry large toys and tenders, high performance, and ability to navigate at economic speed with low fuel consumption.
The first yacht, Tsa Tsa, in the new line was sold in January of this year, and has since been successfully launched and delivered to her owners. She features interiors by the in-house design studio at Ocean Yachts in collaboration with the owner, using materials such as Grey Oak, Macassar Ebony, Wengé and lacquered wood throughout.
Amongst the amenities offered by this first yacht is an upper deck owner’s suite with a private terrace, while a VIP plus two guest cabins are located on the lower deck.
The vessel comes with a wide range of tenders and water toys. The convertible aft deck, with oversized modular sofas, stows a 6.50 metre diesel powered SACS tender while two 3 seater personal water-crafts, 2 Seabobs and one JetLev are stored in the transom garage. An additional stand-up JetSki is installed on the deck, right under the 1.5 ton capacity Opacmare crane.
The option offered on the 90' is the "DiElec" version – which stands for Diesel-Electric propulsion. In this version, the 90' can run either on its two Caterpillar C32 Acert engines for speeds up to 27 knots or, alternately, on its two electric motors fed by the two generators. Under Electric power, the OY can run at 8 knots with a consumption in the region of 40 liters per hour.
