Ocean 55

Ocean 55 is a remarkable combination of luxury and discovery yacht engineering.

Converted from an ultra-strong North Sea pilot vessel, Ocean 55 has been totally rebuilt from the hull upwards. With a transoceanic range of over 5,500 nautical miles, she has a strengthened hull capable of moving through 900mm of ice. Designed by the highly experienced Frank Neubelt of Newcruise, Ocean 55's engineering and specification is of the highest order: Germanischer Lloyds E1.

Certified with the highest-rated environmental protection passport, AEG diesel electric propulsion with new 2008 MTU 2000 series generators, Quantum zero speed stabilisers, fully operational heli-deck rated up to an Agusta Grand with an enclosed hangar and refuelling dock, two sea-level retracting beach platforms, two sundecks with a pool and Jacuzzi and two 30ft tenders are just some of her features.

Interior design is by Birgit Schnaase Design, using a contemporary theme that can still be influenced. The current plan is for up to 12 guests (16 crew) with the option for other layouts for different configurations of the guest space. One concept is for the owner's suite to occupy the entire forward upper deck with a private terrace.

Ocean 55 is an extremely exciting project in which to be involved, let alone to own.
