Ocean Explorer 60
Launched in 2017, CYGNUS CYGNUS is hull no.2 of the OQS-built Ocean Explorer line of semi-custom luxury bluewater cruising catamarans. Her specification outlines a safe and fast performance cruiser capable of crossing the oceans in full comfort. She is built to category CE Ocean A and MGN280-2 with DNV-GL appointed as notified body.
Her accommodation layout incorporates 1 crew + 4 guest cabins, offering true premium sailing experience for all aboard. The materials and equipment installed are carefully chosen in order to match the high set of expectations. Her carbon fibre mast is supplied by Lorima who are globally recognised in the multihull market and the professional racing arenas, her sails are North Sails and the winches are supplied by Harken.
In order to meet requirements for occasional shorthanded sailing and effortless sail handling, both the jib and the storm jib are on electrical furlers. A retractable hydraulic Max Power bow thruster is installed for ensuring smooth maneuvering in narrow harbour areas. Retractable daggerboards and rudders also allow her draft to be reduced to just 0.90m for beaching or 1.3m when in navigation with the rudder blades down.
The galley is well equipped. Sufficient freezer and fridge capacity is installed for covering long passages and for ensuring proper dining at times when the numbers of guests aboard are high. The watermaker has a capacity of producing freshwater of 150 l/h.
Her chosen build category allows for commercial charter operations should her owner decide.
