Ultra Vires was designed with watersports firmly in mind, with space on board for storing superyacht toys such as surf boards, stand-up paddleboards and kite surfing equipment. Her open and free-flowing interiors feature a monochrome decor and extensive wood panelling, as designed by Hanno de Swardt.
Accommodation is for eight guests across four en-suite cabins, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of two. Relaxation spaces include a spacious main-deck saloon, which makes the most of Ultra Vires’ generous 11-metre beam, and two shaded cockpits, one on the main deck with its own bar, and another on the upper deck.
An aft-deck davit crane can be used to store Ultra Vires’ 6.4 metre tender, while a smaller tender and a Jetski can be stored on the foredeck as well.
Ultra Vires is powered by a pair of 305hp Cummins QSB5.9 305MCD engines, which give this catamaran superyacht a transatlantic cruising range of around 4,500 nautical miles, even when towing a 15 metre support vessel.
Based in Cape Town, Two Oceans Marine is currently working on a second hull in the Open Ocean 800 series, which will have a smaller saloon to free up more cockpit space.
