New Model: Ocean Yachts 64 Makaira

Its been a long time coming for this new Ocean Yachts 64 Makaira, to be exact six years from the start of the concept down in New Jersey. Now Ocean has finally launched its first Makaira, what is to be at 64 feet the second size in the current Ocean Yachts line up between the 73 and 58 Super Sport models. Ocean Yachts 64 Makaira brings a breed of fresh air to the Sportfishing yacht sector thanks to a very aggressive super structure design as outlined by renowned custom sportfish designer Steve French from Applied Concepts Unleashed. It is indeed a whole different looks both inside and outside where modernity and curves are shown as never they have been on a sportfish boat. The 64 Makaira also surprises for its layout in this size offering three double guest cabins which include an owners stateroom at midships. The other two rooms will be a VIP to fore, and the third L-shaped bunk twin berth to port side. A two crew cabin with seperate entrance is also located at midships in between the cabins and engine room. The 64 Makaira will also have the option to be offered with in an enclosed bridge option. Performance wise back in construction stages Ocean Yachts and Applied Concepts made a lot of study for saving weight and give the 64 Makaira an edge in performance, and the result is a dry weight of just over 34 tons. Power is twin Cat engines of 1925hp.
