With OCEA Nautilus, Philippe Briand has brilliantly reinterpreted the concept of OCEA’s yachts. He has designed a hull full of elegance and power, with space for large tenders, and without sacrificing any fundamental qualities—such as reliability, comfort and seaworthiness. OCEA Nautilus takes guests around the world in a refined setting, while blending into the landscape in style.
Philippe Briand, architecte naval :
“I have known the founders of OCEA for many years, our careers have run in parallel… We have always got on well together even though we have never had the opportunity to work with each other until now.
The specifications for the OCEA Nautilus range of yachts are based on two opposing constraints: how to carry a large tender on the main aft deck without compromising the habitable volume. The boat has been designed around this idea and that of a beautiful exploration yacht.
For me, the interest of a project always lies in the challenge and the novelty… In addition, the ideas must closely match the DNA of the shipyard. In this particular case, everything gels: OCEA has a double culture, that of functional boats subject to numerous constraints and that of long range yachts. I have imagined a boat in synergy with this know-how.“
