Ocean King of Chioggia, Italy near Venice just announced a new 88 model in its Classic series of Ocean King Explorers.
"Creating superyacht impact from a small yacht that feels huge," is how the company describes the new Ocean King 88 Classic in its press release, a yacht to "inspire immediate confidence with its huge 7.5m beam, 4 decks, heavy displacement double-bottomed Grade A steel hull and aluminium superstructure."
"This is a yacht derived from clever engineering, reliability, and ease of maintenance rather than interior demands," the company said, "with emphasis placed on the engine room layout to offer ease of access to the reliable and proven systems installed, combined with ventilation, insulation, and spaciousness make for an easy to maintain performer.
"A commercial shipping approach to the yacht's engineering heart. Access to the engine room is through the stern garage which could be configured for multiple purposes such as a dive center, watertoy and fishing storage, or as a small beach club."
Developed in conjunction with the VYD Studio of Venice, the 88 Classic offers a gross tonnage of 238, rare in a yacht of this size. The standard interior arrangement is five stateroom accommodation with the full-beam master stateroom on the main deck, with an abundance of light, as is more usual on larger yachts. Generous crew accommodation is forward on the lower deck with the Captain's cabin behind the wheelhouse on the upper deck.
The upper deck with its well-apportioned skylounge opens up to a further dining area for the full compliment of guests and deck storage for a 6m tender, watertoys and crane.
The Ocean King Classic 88 has a range of 8,000 nautical miles at a speed of 8 knots consuming 36 liters per hour.
