French shipyard Ocea has revealed the first renderings of its new 32.7 metre Ocea Commuter 108 superyacht. The yacht, which will be built in aluminium, will be the fourth hull in Ocea's Commuter 108 series and is due for delivery in 2023.
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.
Built in aluminium, 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.
Construction on the Ocea Commuter 108 began in summer 2021 and is the 10th motor yacht to be built by the French shipyard.
