The said interaction drove to a brand-new philosophy whose main features are: extended outdoor and indoor living volumes, ability to carry large toys and tenders, high performance and ability to navigate at economic speed with low fuel consumption, resulting in reduced overall operating costs.

In order to achieve the above it was necessary to rethink the whole fundamentals of the fast yachts concept. Ensuring clients could achieve their legitimate goals, Oceanic Yachts designed and developed an innovative hull concept named “Displanning”, a combination of the words ‘displacement’ and ‘planning’.

The “Displanning” hull concept offers the best of both displacement and semiplanning configurations, more specifically displacement at speeds under 14-knots and semi-planning above that speed. In general, displacement speeds offer low consumption and longer range, while semi-planning offers higher performance.

For propulsion the entry-level Oceanic Yachts 90’ yacht is available in a diesel version with two Caterpillar C32 Acert engines coupled to conventional straight shafts (STS model). The hull design incorporates twin steps that significantly reduce the hydrodynamic resistance at cruising speed (24 knots) and produces a top speed of 27/28 knots.

The “DiElec” model – which stands for Diesel-Electric propulsion – is a true innovation of the Oceanic range. In this version, the 90′ can run either on its two Caterpillar engines coupled to Fortjes pods with counter rotating propellers for speeds up to 28 knots or, alternately, on its two electric motors powered by generators.

The second Oceanic Yachts model that will be launched, the Oceanic 140’ superyacht, features a superstructure made of Aramat, a state-of-the-art material employed in aeronautics, an exceptionally light and strong combination. The 140’s power is provided by three MTU 16V2000 M94 engines, each producing 2,600hp. Two additional 120 kW Auxilia electric motors allow her to navigate in dieselelectric configuration at 8.5-knots with less than 50 litres per hour of fuel consumption. This yacht can be also run on conventional diesel power up to 28 knots.

What makes the 140′ Oceanic yacht unique is the combination of diesel-electric engine with the “Displanning” high-performance hull concept conceived by Arrabito Naval Design. The twin-stepped hull reduces friction and increases low speed performance and stability, thanks to a specifically designed bulb. The result is a 43-metres yacht capable of 4,900 nautical miles range at 8.5-knots, but also keen on cruising between 22 and 24-knots, with a top speed close to 28 knots.

As with Canados, each Oceanic Yachts’ product reflects the distinctive aspirations of the owners. Every single element is carefully designed, handcrafted for each boat and carefully selected or created bespoke by artisans, from furniture to the smallest details.
