Keith and Ryan Hanson, the team behind New Ocean Yachts Australia, have proudly introduced their outstanding new enclosed flybridge model onto the Australian market. Making her debut at the recent Sydney International Boat Show, with the only boat to command a lengthy wait for visitors to gain an inspection, the New Ocean Yachts 68 Enclosed Flybridge has set a new benchmark for those who appreciate the ultimate luxury boating experience. From the moment you set your eyes upon her incredibly stylish lines and commanding on-water presence, you can understand why this boat takes flybridge boat ownership to a new level.
As you take your first step aboard you get a feel for the immaculate quality and incredible finish that abounds this master crafted vessel, reflecting the super yacht inspired craftsmanship now a hallmark of every boat from New Ocean Yachts.
The large teak finished hydraulic swim platform is a sturdy base to inspect the spacious tender garage. Moving through the engine room door you find an immaculately presented and spacious engine room housing twin shaft drive Caterpillar C32 ACERT diesel engines and an extensive range of mechanical equipment to support the long range cruising capabilities of this new flybridge marque. A key feature of the mechanical abilities of this vessel is the Twin Disc EJS joystick control system. This revolutionary system works seamlessly with the shaft drive engines, bow and stern thrusters to ensure simple but accurate berthing and handling of this impressive boat.
A unique feature of the New Ocean Yachts range of Sports Yacht, Flybridge and Motor Yacht vessels is the euro inspired cockpit layout and the huge and spacious layout of the 68 Enclosed Flybridge exemplifies this. A large high gloss teak table with surrounding padded lounge and timber padded chairs will seat up to ten in comfort, with a large external BBQ and fridge capable of serving all on board. You then make you way through the large three way sliding stainless steel bulkhead doors into a class leading galley and saloon layout. The galley features an owner designed and inspired island serving bench with the galley featuring a full complement of leading household appliances. As you make your way through the galley and saloon you quickly gain an appreciation for the immaculately finished high gloss walnut timberwork, supported by high quality ultra leather throughout and corian benchtops. A mechanical lift 40 inch flat screen TV appears from the side apartment, which can be viewed from the six seat dining table or luxurious lounge.
Below decks you find a continuation of the impressive high gloss walnut timber-work, with the large rounded bulkheads an exceptional example of the quality of the timber craftsmanship reflected right through-out the vessel. The guest master cabin forward features a full queen size bed and a stand alone ensuite. The guests cabin to port features two single beds and an adjoining ensuite that is used as the day head. The fourth cabin features an extensive auxilliary room including a full domestic upright fridge and matching freezer, washer dryer and electrical components. The additional storage for provisions ensures the 68 Enclosed Flybridge is suited to extended stay aboard cruising. The owner’s full beam master stateroom is an exceptional example of the apartment style living this boat represents. Featuring a full king size bed, large double basin ensuite and shower, with ample storage and a 40 inch flat screen TV, the full beam master really is an owners paradise.
Moving back into the saloon and up the conveniently placed saloon staircase you find what is quite possibly the most impressive flybridge layout of any boat on the Australian market right now. Three leather electric Bezenzoni helm chairs front the super yacht inspired helm. An impressive array of the latest electronics adorns the helm alongside the Twin Disc EJS joystick. The leather L shaped lounge pulls out to create a full double size bed, with a mechanical lift 40 inch flat screen TV and bar fridge offering additional accommodation space. Large stainless doors with a hopper window extend out onto an elevated landing area with teak table and wrap around bench seat, plus a padded reverse facing seat.
The incredible master craftsmanship, stylish layout and design and awesome presence are reason enough to want to own this amazing vessel. But according to Bruce and Julie Scott, the owners of the new 68 Enclosed Flybridge, the purchase experience matches the quality of the boat. “We cant say enough about how incredible and exceptional the experience has been with Keith, Ryan and the team from New Ocean Yachts,” said Bruce and Julie the owners of the new 68 Enclosed Flybridge. The level of customisation they allowed us was fantastic so we could have the boat we really wanted, and we are so impressed with how much boat you get for the investment, the size and quality of our boat is second to none, Bruce and Julie went on to say.
The New Ocean Yachts 68 Enclosed Flybridge will be based on Sydney Harbour and is available for pre-arranged inspection.
