Ocea Yachts reveals 38m explorer yacht concept 125XP
by Chris Jefferies
French yard Ocea Yachts has released full details of its latest explorer yacht concept, the 38 metre Ocea 125XP. Developed in collaboration with Joubert-Nivelt Design and Borella Art Design, this globetrotting yacht is the result of six months of technical development.
As a result, clients can expect a much shorter lead time of around 33 months, explains Charles Ehrardt, senior sales broker at Camper & Nicholsons International, which is offering the Ocea 125XP for sale.
The rugged exterior lines and high bulbous bow reflect the yacht’s seafaring capability, with an estimated cruising range of 5,000 nautical miles at ten knots that ensures no destination is too remote.
Other features that reinforce the Ocea 125XP’s explorer yacht credentials include a sheltered nine metre tender garage that is recessed into the main deck aft. This multifunctional space can also store a crew tender and a pair of Jet Skis.
Moving inside and the décor exudes a feeling of warmth and calm. “I set out to create a world that is real and poetic, comfortable and unashamedly luxurious, all at once," explains interior designer Nicola Borella.
Accommodation is for up to eight guests in four cabins, including a full-beam master suite that benefits from a walk-in wardrobe as well as his and hers bathrooms. Meanwhile, the crew quarters is suitable for a staff of up to seven people and the undisclosed engine installation would provide a top speed of 13 knots.
The woodwork reflects the yacht’s globetrotting ambitions, with creamy white koto sourced from Africa and South American lacewood louro faia. Elsewhere wool and silk rugs and supple full-grain leathers are offset by chrome accents and decorative items from Cristal Lalique.
"The Ocea 125XP is the culmination of various projects on the theme of calm and lightness,” Borella adds. “It's the most beautiful product we've ever made."
