The new OE72 designed by German Frers offers innovative elements reflected in the accommodation and deck arrangement. Whether you plan to cruise stylishly around the world or race comfortably at 20+ knots offshore the OE72 will be the perfect platform to reach your goals. The accommodation volume offers ample space for comfort while the hull design measurements are focused on delivering high performance and stability. The fully customizable layout is designed to operate with only two crew to reduce operational expenses and weight from extra crew cabins, and to increase interior volume and simplicity for the owner.
The OE72 offers many customizable options to transform this elegant platform into anything from a luxuriously spacious yacht with all the toys, to a highly efficient green circumnavigation machine to get off the grid entirely, or even into the ultimate microlight offshore racing multihull with the latest foiling package. Or perhaps an elegant combination of all of these elements! The four-cabin arrangement provides a generous amount of personal space and comfort. Three to sixs cabin arrangements remains a part of the custom layouts available.
“…CRUISING IN LUXURY
In 2015, we were seduced by the Ocean Explorer 60 (see full test in MW #141). This luxury offshore cruiser, that’s fast and safe, was as attractive as it was innovative. As the first catamaran from the young brand, it was a total success and showed exceptional build quality. Since our test, OE 60 #1 has covered more than 60,000 nautical miles and two other examples have left the yard. Six years later, the opportunity arose to discover its bigger sistership just launched by
OQS in Jakobstad, Finland. With this model, carefully thought out, the brand intends to confirm its very high-end semi-custom positioning, similar to what Nautor Swan have done. This comparison is not totally innocent, given we’re in the fief of the manufacturer presented as the Rolls Royce of monohulls. The objective of OQS is therefore a gradual increase in size, favoring efficiency and reliability, all in an elegant and understated setting…”
Fast, comfortable and serene exploration of the oceans were the owner’s specifications, and this corresponds in every way to what the design and production teams have actually achieved with this OE72. This luxurious catamaran is more like a three-quarter custom than a semi-custom. This particularly elegant limousine of the seas guarantees its owner sensations under way and life on board that have never been explored before. So much so that the accuracy and balance of the concept are unprecedented.”
“…German Frers, Designing the new Ocean Explorer
German Frers, the Argentinean naval architect who has designed some of the world’s most beautiful one-offs and contributed to the success of Swan, the world’s most iconic monohull yacht brand, needs no introduction. After the OE60, the OE72 is an important challenge for German as it puts the shipyard into the super-cat sector. For this exercise, the architect applied some of the recipes that have made many of his monohulls successful: “I’ve always liked fluid lines with low-profile coachroofs. On the OE 72, we raised the freeboard slightly. This is reassuring when heading into bigger waves and has allowed us to design a low-profile roof cap that preserves the elegance of the silhouette, a crucial aesthetic point, in my opinion. The other advantage is to be able to center the large tanks under the floors – these being consequently higher. This first OE72, whose construction is oversized to meet the owner’s desire for sailing in all latitudes, is therefore very robust. The shipyard and the teams that I have known for many years are capable of making lighter versions and easily building a boat under 30 tons lightship, with sophisticated and reliable manufacturing processes. As for the 11-meter beam, this increases the righting moment and allows averages of 15 knots over long periods, provided the breeze is there, while maintaining on-board comfort.”
“Founded in the Jakobstad-Pietarsaari region, in Finland, Ocean Explorer comes from a long history of luxury international boat builders coming together to form OQS ‘Ocean Quality Systems’. The same craftsmen who build the high-performance, luxury yachts of the same region, use their skills and close attention to detail to create the Ocean Explorer catamaran.
Internationally acclaimed Naval Architect, Germán Frers, known for his beautiful and efficient designs, along with the knowledgeable Ocean Explorer team design and build every yacht with you at the very heart of it, creating a platform to enable you to take the next step, your next adventure. All from the comfort and safety of your expertly designed yacht, so you can sail the world without compromise.
The Ocean Explorer is your high performance, luxury yacht, custom designed for pure sailing pleasure and built to navigate and explore unchartered territory.”
