Sunseeker International has revealed details of a new model, the Ocean 460. Social areas on each external deck include a two-level aft ‘Beach Club’ area and full-height glazing.
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’. It features 25% more interior volume than its sister ship, the 131 Yacht.
Rather than using the boat’s length within its model name, the Ocean 460 references its gross tonnage figure, the measurement of a yacht’s interior volume. This is a new naming convention for Sunseeker, aimed at reminding 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.
Comfort is key
The new Ocean 460 will benefit from reduced noise, more usable space and the very latest technologies. The new exterior styling features swooping curves and aggressive lines. One of the key highlights of 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.
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 the side door on both main decks can be used exclusively for crew..
The upper deck aft accommodation can be customised to offer either an aft saloon area or a penthouse suite master cabin with a 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 full-height glazing and open-plan one-level space. It features ‘couture’ walk-in wardrobe, vanity desk, en suite with a freestanding bath and dedicated office space.
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 realized in collaboration with Design Unlimited and Sunseeker’s in-house interior design team. 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.
On the aft deck, the entertainment area mearges 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. After the saloon, a twin-level asymmetrical layout presents itself, with 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.”
