Video: Sanlorenzo captures helipad landing aboard Ocean Dreamwalker III
by Miranda Blazeby
The 47 metre explorer yacht, which was launched in May at Sanlorenzo’s shipyard in La Spezia, features a longer stern area especially requested by the owner to accommodate a landing pad for helicopters.
A video released by the shipyard shows the helipad in use as two guests make a smooth landing aboard the yacht.
The yacht features exterior design created by Francesco Paszkowski and was launched in a special Buddist ceremony especially requested by the Chinese owner in May.
Ocean Dreamwalker III is the largest unit in the EXP series, modified from the popular 460 EXP model and is the first hull in the 500 EXP series with E Motion electric propulsion.
The 500 tonne yacht has accommodation for 10 guests across five cabins, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of eight.
Power comes from a pair of Caterpillar C-32 Acert 1320hp engines for a top speed of 16 knots.
