The teams behind the OceaNemo series (previously called Ocea Nemo) tout their new yachts as Sport Utility Yachts. They’re putting the emphasis on “Sport” even more. They’ve signed agreements with nine watertoy manufacturers. This, to ensure everything from amphibious aircraft and autos to inflatable climbing walls can be onboard.
The OceaNemo series was created around the ideas of adventure cruising and toting lots of toys. It originated with Aldo Manna, founder and CEO of the brokerage and management firm MC Yacht & Co. Manna approached Fulvio di Simoni and Ocea Yachts to design and build them, respectively. The OceaNemo megayachts will carry their flotilla of toys in a tender garage and on a raised level between the main and upper decks.
The nine toy manufacturers supplying the fun factor to the OceaNemo yachts are:
- Al Custom, a sportfisherman builder; 19- to 30-foot boats are available
- Brenta, a day-sailor builder; 30- to 33-foot boats are available
- FunAir, which makes inflatable waterslides, trampolines, and climbing walls
- NautiBuoy Marine, another inflatable-toy manufacturer, this time of platforms (above) for extra sunning space or swimming, complete with swim rails
- Quadrofoil, a maker of an all-electric hydrofoiling craft
- Seamagine, which builds private subs that can dive down about 4,920 feet (1,500 meters)
- SeaMax Easy, an amphibious-aircraft builder; the plane’s wings fold, too, within minutes
- The British Hovercraft Company, which supplies (you guessed it) hovercraft
- WaterCar, whose amphibious autos reportedly “cruise” at 44 mph; on land, they reportedly exceed 55 mph.
These are not the only toys that the OceaNemo is meant to carry. The usual PWCs and SeaBobs, plus canoes and more are able to be stowed. And, the team behind the series say more formal toy partnerships are coming soon. Stay tuned.
