OCEA shipyard in France has confirmed an order for the construction of a Commuter 90. The 30m yacht is designed by naval architecture firm Joubert-Nivelt and  naval design studio Pierre Frutschi.

Designed for long voyages, the new Commuter 90 conforms to the specifications of all OCEA yachts. She will feature a reinforced hull for navigation in ice conditions and transoceanic range. The priorities when designing this ship were robustness, reliability and simplicity, the company claims.
