First pictures: Franck Darnet's interior for Ocea X47 concept
by Chris Jefferies
As the renderings below reveal, Darnet Design has drawn up a clean, modern interior décor, which uses light woodwork and white soft furnishings to create a fresh and relaxing atmosphere.
The open-plan saloon features a lounge area with two large L-shaped sofas and occasional chairs. Further forward a more formal dining area allows ten guests to enjoy a meal around a square table. Large square windows on both sides ensure that plenty of natural light can filter through to the interior.
Accommodation is for 12 guests split between six cabins, including a main deck master suite. Two double cabins, two twin cabins and two single cabins on the lower deck complete the guest layout.
Meanwhile the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to 11 people and all cabins would be fitted with en-suite facilities and LCD televisions. Key features include two large aft decks and a vast superyacht sundeck. The yard adds that the layout can be easily modified to suit a client’s wishes.
Power would come from a pair of 1,300hp Caterpillar engines that would allow for a top speed of 17 knots and a maximum range of 4,000 nautical miles at the cruising speed of 15 knots.
