At OCEA Yachts, each boat is designed and built exclusively to order and to the shipowner’s specific needs. Designing a motor yacht is a great adventure, one that takes about two years.
Seeing the project through to its completion is a process that largely depends on regular communication between the yard and the shipowner. An experienced manager oversees the project to ensure the process runs smoothly. The manager works in close liaison with OCEA’s design offices, and serves as the exclusive point of contact and advisor for the shipowner. The manager also guarantees the quality of the finished product. Two in-house design offices oversee the construction.
Naval architects with the project design office finalise overall plans in compliance with all applicable regulations and work out the design elements.
OCEA’s project design office is located in Saint-Nazaire.
Located in Les Sables-d’Olonne, naval architects with the design development office draw up construction plans and the relevant documentation.
After launching, the boat is entrusted to the commissioning manager. The commissioning manager oversees the drafting of technical documentation, as well as technical and operational tests, and draws up the maintenance plan. Then comes time for provisional acceptance of the boat. Throughout the warranty period, a specialised manager is responsible for the yacht. This manager is tasked with making any necessary adjustments before final delivery.
