Call her a fast-displacement yacht, a fast explorer-style yacht, or “just” a custom megayacht noteworthy for carrying two electric cars. With any of these, the description fits. Also regardless, the Oceanic 140 will become the largest-ever yacht from Canados upon delivery two years from now.
This 140’9” (42.95-meter) megayacht was originally contracted for delivery in September next year. However, the owner changed his mind, for an unusual, interesting reason. Specifically, had the opportunity to install the new Caterpillar 32B series diesel engines. These powerplants build upon the success of the Caterpillar 32 ACERT engines. The triple-engine configuration on the Oceanic 140 will be the first installation in Europe. They’ll offer flexibility, too. The side engines together will handle long-range duties, for instance, with the central unit untapped.
In combination with the hull design, the brand-new engines promise what some owners might consider the best of both worlds. The Oceanic 140 should top out at 25 knots and still see long range between 10 and 14 knots. Canados calls the hull “Displaning Hull Concept,” for her efficiency at both displacement and planing speeds. This also means she’ll have lower fuel consumption than usual. In fact, Canados anticipates burning just 13 gph (50 lph) at 10 knots. That speed additionally should permit a range upwards of 6,000 nautical miles. While fuel burn obviously is higher at faster speeds, the megayacht should still see an 800-nautical-mile range at 21 knots.
The owner, a repeat Canados customer, has fun in mind for the homeport waters of the South of France. It’s due to abundant toys being aboard. They include the above-mentioned electric cars, kept in a transom garage. A nearly 20-foot (6-meter) tender and lots of other watertoys will be at hand, too, in a separate tender bay. The 1,184-square-foot (110-square-meter), elongated aft deck will be the all-day playground, featuring sunpads, a bar, a transom hot tub, and a dining area.
Inside, the owner and Michela Reverberi are focused on a fine, elegant ambience. From the four guest staterooms to the owner’s upper-deck suite (above), you’ll find washed tay wood and rosewood, plus mahogany with stainless steel inserts. European oak textured like a tatami mat and finished with gold dust, meanwhile, will feature prominently on the main deck. Finally, saddle-stitched leather, bronze accents, and even embossed and gold-treated leather panels representing the Fibonacci sequence will attract attention.
The Oceanic 140, with a 26’10” (8.22-meter) beam, has just started construction.
