SUNSEEKER REVEALS NEW TRI-DECK SEMI-DISPLACEMENT SUPERYACHT, THE SPECTACULAR OCEAN 460
Sunseeker International has revealed details of yet another exceptional model, the Ocean 460. This radical new yacht boasts expansive interior and exterior volume, dedicated social areas on each external deck including a two-level aft Beach Club area, extensive full-height glazing and a profile that enhances its gorgeous, voluminous feel with a sleek, sporty and futuristic look.
The Ocean 460 is a tri-deck yacht platform with a round-bilge semi-displacement hull. Whilst part of the Ocean range of models, it is also a superyacht, the first to feature a vertical bow and with a beam of 31’ she has 25% more interior volume than her sister ship the 131 Yacht, thus paving the way for a completely new design philosophy for the next generation of Sunseeker superyachts.
Rather than using the boat’s length within its model name, the Ocean 460 references its gross tonnage figure, the measurement of a yachts interior volume. While this is a new naming convention for Sunseeker, it truly captures why this new model is so unique. It reminds the owner that they are gaining a significant increase in interior volume in a yacht measuring 42 metres, compared with a conventional yacht layout of a similar size.
The Ocean 460 is available with MAN 12V engines providing a maximum speed of 21kts and a range of 3,200nm at a cruising speed of circa 12kts. Optional hybrid options will also be available offering a myriad of benefits from extending the range, a period of silent running or delivering the hotel load whilst at anchor.
Sunseeker has designed the Ocean 460 with discerning clientele in mind, understanding that customers are spending more time on board, both underway and at anchor, with increased comfort and quality of life on board of supreme importance. The new Ocean 460 will benefit from reduced noise, more usable space and the very latest technologies. She also boasts some of Sunseeker’s most sophisticated interiors to date with numerous options for owners to fully customise their yacht.
The new exterior styling is breathtaking and although on a grand scale with her swooping curves and aggressive lines, she is immediately recognisable as a Sunseeker. One of the key highlights on this yacht is the upper ‘Sky Lounge’ deck. This vast open space can enjoy multiple arrangements with options for wet bars, dining and social spaces with free-standing modular or bespoke furniture, depending on the owners’ requirements.
Creating an important first impression, a spacious lobby welcomes guests on board via double doors on the starboard side amidships. Within, a remarkable feature staircase cuts through all floors allowing access to the main saloon and dining areas aft, and master and guest cabins forward. On the port side, the side deck and side door on both main decks can be used exclusively for crew, thereby aiding the privacy of owner and guests.
The upper deck aft accommodation can be customised to offer either a spectacular large aft saloon area or a penthouse suite master cabin with a vast private veranda. Side decks lead to an upper forward deck with plentiful options for sunbathing and socialising with various alternative seating, sunbathing and spa tub layouts to choose from.
The full-beam Master Stateroom is located forward and provides a luxurious, opulent space with full-height glazing and an open plan one-level space that has the feel of a boutique hotel suite. It boasts a luxurious ‘couture’ walk-in wardrobe, vanity desk, en suite with freestanding bath and dedicated office space. Owners can opt to make this very light and subtle or incredibly dramatic with considered recessed lighting and stunning light and dark natural stone, woods and opulent textures.
The lower deck guest accommodation consists of four equally sized en suite double or twin guest cabins. The crew accommodation consists of four comfortable en suite bunk cabins along with a very large crew mess and dedicated laundry room. A captain’s cabin adjacent to the wheelhouse can also be opted for, making it a popular yacht for chartering too.
The interiors are a close collaboration between Design Unlimited and Sunseeker’s in-house interior design team and are understandably sumptuous. The first impression is one of light, space and detail paired with premium technology and an infinite choice of décor and lighting to suit the mood, increased with subtle lighting integration. The styling is an evolution that is reassuringly Sunseeker, with the yacht exuding sophistication with decadent touches, seamless room transitions, and the very finest woods, leathers and fabrics to create a bespoke personality for each individual owner.
The aft deck entertainment area is fully integrated into the overall design, merging seamlessly with the vast saloon due to its fully flush floor and the linear detail of the ceiling panels that take the eye from inside to outside. As you walk out from the saloon, a unique twin-level asymmetrical layout presents itself, with large deck spaces for dining or lounging on the upper level and steps that lead down to the spacious stand-out ‘Beach Club’ area with direct water access on the lower level.
This lower level features a hydraulic side balcony that folds out at the water line to create additional just-above-water deck area. Curved seating and an integrated bar can be combined with slot-in bar stools, multiple sun loungers and free-standing furniture, with room for several groups of guests to socialise. There are also the options of a large rectangular spa half recessed into the deck and a transformer platform that, when closed is flush with the deck and can extend out as boarding steps, or submerge to provide easy access to the sea, making it one of the largest beach clubs on a yacht of this size. On the starboard side there is a side-opening tender garage which accommodates a Williams DieselJet 625, two jet skis and a plethora of toys.
Andrea Frabetti, CEO at Sunseeker International comments “I never cease to be amazed at the ingenuity, passion and talent of our in-house design and engineering teams that create the most achingly beautiful yachts, time after time. Although a superyacht, the lines of this new 42-metre model are truly perfect; beautiful, powerful and graceful, all in the same breath. Matched to an interior of sheer opulence, innovation and peerless quality, clients will be spell-bound at this new found direction.”
Overall this is a yacht that owners and guests will want to spend extended time on board, Whether that be inside the immensely luxurious interior or enjoying one of the numerous outdoor entertaining spaces such as the Sky Deck, upper foredeck, the expansive sky lounge aft deck or the fantastic split-level ‘Beach Club’ with direct water access. Wherever you choose to be, you’ll be amongst some of the most beautiful views in the world. Be prepared to be mesmerized.
