Open Ocean 850 Luxury Expedition Catamaran

Currently in build is the Open Ocean 850 Luxury Expedition Catamaran, a bigger sister of the two Open Ocean 800 Expedition Catamarans that were launched in 2016.

This magnificent catamaran will be the biggest power catamaran launched in South Africa. She has wider hulls than the Open Ocean 800 Luxury Expedition Catamarans and is designed to to be a luxury on-the-water home or hotel for the owner and his guests to cruise the world in style.

She has two double, en-suite cabins on both the port and starboard hulls, and crew cabins in the front of both hulls, therefore accommodating four couples and four crew members comfortably.

She has space for lots of toys and the deck is set up to accommodate three tenders and a jetski. Another unique feature is a jacuzzi on the flybridge.

The Open Ocean 850 Luxury Expedition Catamaran is the epitome of luxury cruising.
