The 41 metre sloop Inmocean built by Fitzroy Yachts is a classic style yacht that gave Dubois Naval Architects & Designers the opportunity to prove their ability within this arena. Officially launched in 2008 at their shipyard in New Plymouth, New Zealand, she was delivered to her owner in the same year following rigorous sea trial testing and has remained a private yacht since that time.
Dubois, who have become best known in recent years for their contemporary sailing superyachts, have produced a classic style yacht with a profile that displays an easy flowing sheer line with long classic ends. This hull form not only promotes a gentle motion in a seaway, it also keeps the decks dry with good flare and overhang forward. The under body shape is also more classical than some modern forms. Inmocean takes advantage of Dubois' most recent developments in keel and rudder design, thereby creating exceptional performance from a yacht of this style.
Her noted advancements in design and performance no doubt contributed to the superyacht being placed as a finalist at the prestigious 2009 World Superyacht Awards in the Best Sailing Yacht in 30m to 44.99 metre size range category. In addition, her fantastic design was further recognised in the International Superyacht Society Design Awards, where Inmocean was also a celebrated finalist.
The interior layout, designed by Adam Lay Studio, is unusual, accommodating 6 guests forward over three generous cabins, consisting of two double cabins each with additional Pullman’s and en-suite facilities.
The opulent Owner’s suite boasts twin en-suite bathrooms with a separate luxuriously large shower, as well as separate access to the foredeck cockpit area, creating a feeling of exclusivity and providing privacy on-board. The crew of up to five is comfortably accommodated aft in three cabins, one Captain’s cabin as well as an additional two twin bunk cabins. There are distinct benefits in this style which displays a real seaman-like logic to the design, especially if the owner and guests are not expected to be aboard during long passages which, in yachts of this size, is usually the case.
This luxury yacht has an aluminium hull, a beam of 8.35 metres and a 4.30 metre draft. She has a gross tonnage of 144 tonnes. The 41 metre Classic Rondal has a maximum 738.7 sqm of sail on masts and boom, which give Inmocean an air draft of 4.30 metres. Run by a single Caterpillar 3406E 600BHP diesel engine, she can achieve a top speed of 13 knots, with a cruising speed of 11 knots. With her 15,100 litres fuel tanks she has a maximum range of 2,303 nautical miles at 10 knots, and her water tanks store around 4,900 litres of fresh water.
In October 2013 Inmocean arrived at Oceania Marine's North Shipyard in Port Whangarei, New Zealand to undergo an extensive over 3 month refit including exterior paint as well as interior refresh. The paint work specifically consisted of a full superstructure repaint, some minor repairs on the hull paint, new anti-fouling and the bottom was brought back to the bottom coat. All major machinery was fully serviced including generators and the main engine.
The interior refresh was completed by Sibel Huhn Interiors of Germany and SMI New Zealand, and consisted of all new upholstery throughout, new decorations, wall coverings, new stairs, a new marble top bar and new bed fabrics and linen amongst the numerous changes.
Deck equipment was also serviced where needed, and Inmocean comes with a brand new tender, a 17’ ABS tender with 90hp outboard. She also comes with a 15’ hp outboard and ample diving equipment for her guests, ensuring an enjoyable experience whether relaxing on board or making the most of the no doubt beautiful surroundings.
The list of maintenance issues stems from regular usage expected of a 5 year old well traveled yacht. After her extensive refit, however, she is completely refreshed and is now in showboat condition. She shows as an impressive new yacht and is a credit to all of the noted superyacht companies who have worked on bringing her up to this level from construction to completion of the recent refit. Designed for long ocean passages and off the beaten track cruising, she turns heads wherever she goes. Inmocean is striking, timeless and a pleasure to sail.
The yacht is for sale with Denison SuperYacht Division at an asking price of $11,750,000 (USD).
