France-based Ocea, the 11-year-old yacht division of the larger shipbuilding company by the same name, has delivered its latest Ocea Commuter superyacht, Elisabet.
At 154ft (47m) she has a specially reinforced hull designed for traveling in ice-laden waters.
Her range is a reported 4,500nm at 10kt. Cruising speed is reportedly 15.5kt, and top end is 17kt, thanks to twin 1,300-hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT diesels.
Of course, in recognition that Elisabet’s owner may want to enjoy somewhat shallow anchorages, draft is just 7ft (2.15m).
Bearing naval architecture by Joubert/Nivelt, Elisabet further features a helipad aft on the bridge deck. Inside are accommodations for 10 in the owner’s party and 10 crew.
While Elisabet is cruising the Med, Ocea is continuing construction on other Ocea Commuter models, including a 77ft version.
Perhaps the owner, as well as Elisabet’s owner, will draw inspiration from other Ocea Commuter clients. An Ocea Commuter 108 christened in 2004 as Abely Wheeler (now Lepante) has circumnavigated the world, for example.
