The Two Oceans 82HPC is an 82 foot full carbon high performance sailing catamaran in production at Two Ocean Marine Manufacturing in Cape Town, South Africa. She is designed for performance sailing, yet she is luxurious and built for comfort.
The coach roof of the Two Oceans 82HPC high performance catamaran is slightly lower than the other boats in the Open Ocean Range, keeping with the owner’s specifications for a sleek and elegant overall shape. Her hull lines have been fine-tuned to give her the best performance possible, but she still has the characteristics that the other Open Ocean designs are known for, namely the spacious aft cockpit, open plan saloon area and the panoramic views from inside the saloon.
The aft cockpit has a versatile layout in that it lends itself to both casual lounging on the large sunbeds and a divan to a more formal dining experience at the allocated dinette area which seats up to ten people.
In the forward end of the saloon, a “windoor” that Du Toit Yacht Design, Two Oceans Marine and Mecaplex in Switzerland are developing with the client opens to the wing deck, allowing for more ventilation and easy access to the forward daybed. This allows guests the benefit of protection from the elements, but still to be able to enjoy the natural ventilation it will provide. A large 60-inch TV lifts out of the front furniture module and can be viewed from a comfortable L-shaped settee with integrated ottomans.
To the starboard side of the windoor, one can keep an eye on the hi-tech instruments at the custom designed navigation station. Aft of this one can have an intimate meal at the allocated dining area.
The master cabin with an en-suite heads is situated in the port hull along with custom-designed features such as a large massage and exercise area. In the forward end of the port hull one can find a work room and a storage compartment which is accessible via a deck hatch.
The starboard hull has two guest cabins, each with its own en-suite heads, separated by the galley. To the forward end of this hull is where one will find a crew cabin with heads, shower and additional storage.
In order to save weight on the glazing of this exceptional vessel the manufacturer is working closely with a Swiss company called Mecaplex to come up with a unique hybrid method of combining acrylic and float glass together to form a product called “liteshield”. This product will reap the benefits of the best of both components’ properties, most notably light weight and scratch resistance.
