The Oceanic 140’ yacht Hull no. 1 features a superstructure entirely made of Kevlar/Aramat, a state-of-the-art material employed in aeronautics. Aramat offers substantial gains in weight and strength. The 140 is powered by triple MTU 16V2000 M94 engines producing 2,600 hp each coupled to Fortjes counter rotating propellers pod drives. Two additional Auxilia electric 120 kW motors allow her to run in diesel-electric configuration at 8.5-knots with a fuel consumption under 50 liters per hour. When being on the run on the three MTU, the 140’ is capable of a cruising speed in the region of 23 knots for a top end speed of 27 knots.

The Oceanic 140’ luxury yacht Hull #1, thanks to her diesel-electric propulsion and her “displaning” twin stepped hull with bulbous bow, offers impressive long range capacity with 5,400 Nautical Miles at 8.5 knots.

“DiElec” stands for Diesel-Electric – It is a true innovation of the Oceanic range. In this version, the 140′ yacht can run either on its three MTU engines for speeds up to 27 knots or, alternately, on its two 120 kW electric motors powered by generators at 8.5 knots.

What makes the Oceanic 140′ yacht unique is the combination of diesel-electric engine with the “Displaning” high-performance hull concept conceived by Arrabito Naval Design in collaboration with shipyard’s chief naval Architect Giovanni Senatore. The twin-stepped hull reduces friction and increases low speed performance and stability, thanks to a specifically designed bulb tank tested at the Italian Naval Institute.

The result is a unique composite built expedition yacht of 43-meters capable of 5,400 nautical miles range at 8.5 knots (less than 50 liters/13 US gallons per hour fuel consumption), but also keen on cruising between 22 and 24-knots, with a top speed close to 27 knots. This concept offers the best of both displacement and semi-planning configurations, more specifically displacement at speeds under 14-knots and semi-planning above that speed. In general, displacement speeds offer lower consumption and longer range, while semi-planning offers higher performances.
