Presenting the Oceanic 143’ Tri-Deck, the “displaning” flagship of the Canados explorer range
The Oceanic 143’ Tri-Deck, which will be officially presented in the autumn boat shows, brings together the performance of an explorer with the comfort of a fast yacht.
Comfort and speed up to 24 knots. These are the distinctive characteristics of the new Oceanic 143’ Tri-Deck, unveiled by the Canados shipyard, before its water trial. The official presentation is planned for the autumn at the Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show.
OCEANIC 143’ TRI-DECK, THE “DISPLANING” YACHT
Flagship of the explorer range built by the Roman shipyard, based on a yacht concept that is faster than the competition for vessels of this kind, the Oceanic 143’ Tri-Deck comes from innovative engineering processes. The hull design guarantees comfort during sailing and at the same time reduced fuel consumption at a speed between 8 and 12 knots, maintaining stability in all conditions.
The Oceanic 143’ Tri-Deck is neither planing nor displacement, but “displaning”. The fibreglass and vinyl ester body, with kevlar/aramat superstructure, chosen for its lightness, guarantees resistance and durability, significantly reducing maintenance costs.
It has three Caterpillar C32 B-Series 12 cylinder tri-turbo engines for 2,400 HP each. For the slower navigation of longer crossings, the inverter of the central motor is equipped with an intercooler to cool the oil even when turned off and free propeller,so as to only use lateral propulsion, with fuel consumption of only 40 litres per hours.
Performance which is also achieved through a specially designed fin keel, which increases the waterline length by five metres, compared to a traditional hull. This also noticeably reduces pitching in open water.
STABILITY AND SILENCE
With the superstructure pushed forward on the hull, the engineers also needed to resolve the balance issue, reducing the float of the aft of the yacht with a special design of the aft hull, made it heavier and, as a consequence, more stable. In addition, under the tender garage, is a Veem VG 145 SD Gyroscope weighing four tonnes and the eight tanks are all structural, studied so as to further reduce the centre of gravity of the Oceanic 143’ Tri-Deck.
The designers also paid careful attention to silence, achieved through soundproofing and a functional layout: the engine room is aft and far away from the passenger area, cabins are separated by structural beams, the living space on the main deck (reserved solely for the owner) is placed above the guest cabins and protected by partitions.
A COMFORTABLE EXPLORER
In spite of the fact that the Oceanic 143’ Tri-Deck is an explorer, daily life on board benefits from extremely comfortable spaces: two passenger cabins, two VIP suites, aft deck with infinity pool, a large living room, bar with kitchen and table for 12, two terraces of 44 and 15 square metres, a 70 square metre sundeck with Turkish bath and gym, which could also be used to recharge two electric cars.
