New Model: Oxygene 77 Air

Oxygene yachts first model the 77 Air is an interesting power catamaran praised by the business press and the public, which validated a project of developing a unique range of yachts in different calibers. With her 23 meters in length, she is the standard model of the Oxygene line up: and impresses for its 279 square meters living area, giving a rare sensation of space in a yacht of this size. From the stern, a perspective unfolds in the axis of the ship and spreads, uninterrupted views towards the horizon. Both the design and building of 77 Air refused to compromise on environmental protection, a challenge that allowed the elaboration of a product that pushes the boundaries of Eco-responsibility. An extensive study of the hulls and an expert knowledge in wind-age and aerodynamics led to the conception of a power catamaran that may, for instance, use only fifty liters per hour for a cruising speed of 12 knots.
