The Open Ocean 800 Luxury Expedition Catamaran II – Cake
The Open Ocean 800 Expedition Catamaran is the bigger sister of the Open Ocean 750 Expedition Catamaran, Quo Vadis.
Cake, the second Open Ocean 800 Expedition Catamaran to be launched by Two Oceans Marine Manufacturing in 2016, was at the time of her launch, the largest power catamaran ever to be launched in South Africa, along with her sister ship, Ultra Vires.
Powered by two Cummins 228 kW/305 HP motors, she is robustly build for transatlantic voyages and is capable of motoring long distances economically; independently or towing another 50 foot boat . She is built to cross oceans effortlessly and with speed, and to have a motoring range of around 4,500 nautical miles.
The Open Ocean 800 Luxury Expedition Catamaran II is a slightly modified sister ship to the Open Ocean 800 Luxury Expedition Catamaran I, with a slightly smaller saloon area and larger cockpit area which is fitted out with a dining table, barbecue and bar fridge. The aft cabins have been fitted with California Kings and all four double cabins have spacious en-suite heads.
Built for a couple who want to experience kite surfing in far-flung destinations, the aft deck is specifically setup for this by being left open for easy launches. The boat is equipped with a 5.05m primary tender, a 3.2m dinghy and a jet ski launched from dedicated davit cranes.
