Sunseeker reveals renderings of first Ocean 156 model with 2024 delivery

6 February 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Sunseeker has revealed new renderings of its 24.4-metre Ocean 156 superyacht. Scheduled for delivery in autumn 2024, the model is an entry-level addition to the yard's Ocean range and has been named after the yacht's total gross tonnage.

According to the shipyard, the new tri-deck model has "a much larger feeling of space than other yachts of this size" thanks to a smart layout that prioritises multi-functional spaces.

Accommodation on the Ocean 156 is for eight to ten guests depending on layout. The owner's cabin has a main deck configuration that benefits from direct foredeck access, while the lower deck option is full-beam and features ample storage and a vanity desk. Crew accommodation is found forward of the engine room.

Interiors have been conceptualised by ongoing collaborators Design Unlimited. Renderings reveal a contemporary aesthetic, incorporating a neutral colour scheme with minimalist furniture and glass panelling.

Described as having a "penthouse apartment feel", the main saloon is characterised by an open-plan layout and 360-degree views. The layout is customisable, but the standard configuration places an open galley and dining space aft, with a bar area forward and a floating staircase located centrally. An owner looking for increased separation between crew and guest operations can opt to close off a centrally positioned galley.

The Ocean 156 has an enclosed upper deck and single helm station which frees up considerable space on the main deck below. The upper deck has been conceived with a Portuguese bridge, offering space for seating, sunpads and the option to add a spa tub forward of the pilothouse. There is space for furniture (free-standing or fixed) and a built-in wet bar and barbecue aft.

The beach club is available with convertible seating, facing forward at cockpit level or rearwards at deck level, complete with another built-in barbecue to starboard. The hi-lo hydraulic platform has a capacity of 550kg (enough for a Willams 435 SportJet) while a hydraulic sea stair can also be installed.

"Our teams have managed to achieve the impossible, a luxury pocket superyacht with all the practicalities of a smaller model," said Andrea Frabetti, Sunseeker International CEO. "With the beautiful new Ocean 156, we’ve really worked hard to maximise space on board whilst remaining fanatical about every single detail. The design options have been very well considered, incorporating yet more innovative solutions to deliver a true home-away-from-home feel."

Powered by twin MAN V8 1300 or V12 1650 engines on shafts, the Ocean 156 can operate comfortably up to 25 knots.
