Project: OceanClass 57

OceanClass is the re-brand of the models at fifty feet plus coming from the Greenline stable owned by the Seaway Yachts group.  The first model to come from this brand was the 70 labelled at launch as Greenline about, but now Seaway is making OceanClass becoming its own reality by adding this new 57 and 88 projects as future additions.  Designed by J and J Design for the OceanClass 57 the architects create external looks similar to what they showed with the 70.  An interesting feature of the external design are the two reverse shear lines.  The one at middle has the design use to give the saloon windows full view, and the other more to aft divied cockpit deck from side bulwurks corridor.  Inside J and J also went for a more traditional set up by putting the owners statroom to fore.  But the surprise is that this at least on plan looks to be spacious if not more to midships full beam. The living on the OceanClass 57 is all located on the main deck with the galley splitting the saloon from the more relaxing area to those of dining and helm.  Power is twin 600hp engines with twin line shafts propulsion and a top speed of 24 knots being estimated.
