Ocean Series 125 STX Explorer

This versatile vessel features the very latest technology from our super fuel efficient F.A.S.T. hull program. Developed for Pendennis Shipyard in Falmouth, England, she may be utilized as a support craft / toy carrier for a mother ship or as a stand-alone Ice Class global explorer. The large versatile aft deck has room for a 20 ft. RIB, a personal mini-sub, as well as jet skis, windsurfers and kayaks. Conversely the space can be used to carry a 30 ft. sportfish and still have room for other additional support craft. Alternatively the deck can be used for a large infinity plunge pool with generous amounts of outdoor lounging and entertaining room.

This is not a "follow behind" vessel, evidenced by the unique profile which provides an indication of her exceptional abilities. Fully engineered for optimum performance, seakeeping and stability, our advanced technology will allow you to go farther, faster, and with 30% less carbon footprint. Powering options allow for speeds up to 25 knots. At long range cruise fuel consumption is just over 1 ½ gallons per mile for over 8,000 miles endurance.

The interior layout is open to the client's requirements. Whether those requirements include a main deck master with an upper deck sky lounge or a bridge deck master with private deck and uninterrupted views of the aft deck and limitless horizon, this vessel can encompass all this and more. If you are intrigued by a vessel with these capabilities, give us a call to discuss the possibilities.


Drettman Explorer Yacht 32m

Designed in cooperation with Focus Yacht Design, who provided styling and interior design, the new Drettmann Explorer line has been designed for those who not only appreciate cruising and urbane lifestyle at select ports, but also relish the adventurous aspects of sailing. With her classically compact exterior but extraordinarily spacious interior, this 'Tardis' of a yacht is ideal for skippers who wish to indulge their sporting inclinations to the full.

The striking appearance alone makes this vessel predestined for voyages of discovery on the high seas, a luxury base for diving sessions and jet-ski excursions. Accordingly, she offers ample room for tender and surfboards, diving equipment and water toys. The strong masculine silhouette, accentuated by sturdy side straps, underlines the distinctive look of the 27 to 45-metre yachts. But despite all their masculine charm, the wide range of interesting features means there is no need to forego comfort or luxury on board a DEY in any way.

A guaranteed highlight for guests is the large, pleasant dining and lounge area with built-in barbecue at the stern, which affords a fabulous view over the water. This yacht also boasts yet another fascinating first for the DEY class: a spacious beach club with a further bar, lounge area, sauna and steam bath, or optionally with gym zone.

Just a few steps further, three fold-down sundecks allow guests to enjoy the ultimate closeness to the sea. Alternatively, they can opt for the large, individually furnished sundeck at the bow and those whose ambitions are even higher can relax with a chilled drink at the bar on the partly covered sundeck up above. What's more, the teak-clad foredeck conceals a 5.5-metre long tender.

Despite this amazing versatility, a DEY also sets new standards in terms of functionality, such as strictly separate crew and guest areas, a light and open main saloon and an exclusive owner's area with office and separate dressing room to name just a few of many impressive examples.

This 42M Explorer Motoryacht is a stylish new extension to our offshore ocean series.

Under development this year, our 42M hull form has taken on a whole new look as a motoryacht. Continuing with our super-fuel efficient hull technology, this vessel outperforms the competition with 30% fuel savings at optimum cruising speed. Powered by two 1000hp main engines, and with a 5000 mile range, we're making waves in the industry by not making waves under way! This level of performance lowers the carbon footprint of this yacht significantly; and the environmental impact can be reduced even further by careful material selection in the building stage. The interior is spacious and comfortable both for owners and crew. Let us know when you're ready to make this vessel your own!


Our newest vessel is designed to not only land a helicopter on deck but hangar it too!


 
 

It's not unusual to be able to land a helicopter on a 42M yacht. It is, however, more of a challenge to provide a below-decks hangar without folding the rotor blades and still have landing space for your buddy to drop by too. That was the design brief for this exceptional vessel, one which showcases a comfortable and spacious interior as well as providing it's owner with room for all his really cool toys. And as ever, we've continued to push performance boundaries, utilizing our fuel-efficient technology to provide increased space in the interior for far more than just additional fuel storage.
