Ocea's 33m Commuter 108 nears completion

2 June 2023 • Written by Holly Overton

French shipyard Ocea has announced that its new 32.7-metre Ocea Commuter 108 superyacht is approaching completion at the yard in Les Sables-d’Olonne, France. The aluminium yacht had its superstructure installed in September after arriving at the site in May 2022 and has since been fitted with engines, generators and other technical equipment.

The Pierre Frutschi design has been customised to meet the specifications of its owner, which include the ability to cross oceans and to travel freely through emission control areas designated by the International Maritime Organization, such as the North American coasts, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea.

The Ocea Commuter 108 is comprised of five watertight compartments for optimal safety. Sound insulation was a key focal point of the yacht's development alongside a propulsion system that meets the IMO Tier III standards.

According to the yard, “reducing the boat’s environmental footprint was the guiding principle behind the entire design.”

The yacht is fitted with a 1.5-tonne MCA-approved crane to launch and recover tenders and a wide swim platform with access to the lazarette. With a beam of 6.8 metres, accommodation will be for ten people in five cabins, consisting of an owner’s suite and four staterooms. A crew of four sleep in two additional cabins.

The twin 600 BHP IMO Tier III-compliant engines can reach top speeds of 15 knots, with a range of 4,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. The yacht will also be equipped with the “latest generation of batteries”, allowing it to cruise at night without the need for generators.

This model is the fourth hull in Ocea's Commuter 108 series and is due for delivery later this year, after beginning construction in summer 2021. It is the tenth yacht to be built by the French shipyard. 

Once the fourth Commuter 108 is delivered, the yard will be ready to commence construction on a new yacht of a similar size that could be due for completion as early as 2025.
