OCEANUS 45 is currently under costruction at SMC ITALIA’s factory.
The interiors have been designed to house laboratory instruments for carrying out oceanographic research studies
The delivery is planned in October 2020.
The collected data will be shared with the most famous universities in the world in order to study the biodiversity of the Mediterranean fauna.
Through the use of cutting-edge scientific equipment, in-depth studies on the oceanographic dynamics of the Mediterranean basin will also be conducted.
The OCEANUS 45 is a custom high performance cruising catamarans developed by SMC ITALIA.
Interiors and exteriors can be customized in order to ensure the comfort and luxury one expects from a top of the line cat.
The uncluttered saloon and galley are far bigger than normal because advanced engineering allows the mast to be in the ideal position without the normal cross bulkhead restricting the saloon size.
There is a gourmet galley, plenty of fridge and freezer space and saloon seating with a big table for indoor entertaining and the luxury of a forward facing nav station with full 360 degree visibility.
The saloon front has opening hatches giving good visibility forward and fantastic airflow into the saloon which is a real luxury when anchored in those hot tropical islands.
Wide side decks and flat foredeck ensures that it is very safe going forward in rough conditions.
The design incorporates large deck lockers for storage and a huge cockpit with a very open comfortable feel.
The OCEANUS 45 has dual helm positions, allowing for the greatest sight lines forward as well as an elevated position that aids more difficult in-port manoeuvres.
The OCEANUS 45 benefits from a carefully considered use of carbon to achieve an optimum strength to weight ratio.
Under full sail, in a medium breeze, the catamaran moves upwind with confidence, performing like a monohull.
Off the breeze she will be simply exhilarating.
