Modern, functional, and capable of fast passage making, the 33m Owen Clarke superyacht concept will be competitive at superyacht regattas and able to effortlessly transport owners and their guests in style and comfort over long distances. All this as well as being a luxurious home at anchor in remote bays for significant periods.

Key to the concept and where often large sailing yachts can be compromised is the ease of running the deck and handling a large sail-plan with a small crew without modifying and re-configuring the yacht for different modes of sailing (regatta, oceanic or coastal cruising).

From the performance side, the main target was not just to create a modern comfortable sailboat, but to retain the connection with the elements, a yacht which is both responsive and exciting to sail. One of the key elements in achieving this goal is the design and manufacture of the yacht in high performance engineering composites, a construction technique in which OCD have a great deal of specialist experience.

Accommodation – Owner variant

OCD have designed a four cabin layout in which the owner’s suite features a private lounge and dining area along with an adjoining owner’s stateroom. Access to the aft guest/owner’s areas is from the main saloon, the forward guest areas extend to adjacent of the mast, with the raised main saloon dominating mid-ships.

In line with practical and seamanlike aspects of the design the main saloon incorporates a navigation/watch keeping station with the same panoramic views afforded to the guests when dining or relaxing. The main machinery space is situated under the raised saloon sole with walk in access adjacent to the aft companionway bulkhead. This feature allows easy access to the main machinery and systems yet is discreet enough to have no ergonomic impact on the owners/guests.

The galley area is expansive enough to incorporate food preparation and plating up areas and provision in the main companionways for crystal and service crockery stowage. The crew’s quarters is forward of the main galley and comprises a skippers cabin, separate open plan crew mess, two twin cabins for four crew and discrete laundry facilities. There is a generous forepeak area for the stowage of the usual equipment required on this size of yacht.

Accommodation – Charter variant

For the private owner looking to maximise the number of guests when chartering an alternative interior layout can be offered with five owner/guest cabins including a full width owner’s stateroom leading onto the aft terrace deck. The guest cabins can be modified to suit either twin or double bed arrangements and additional pullman berths can be fitted to the forward guest cabins to offer greater flexibility.
