Espiritu Santo

Espiritu Santo

It was with Espiritu Santo that the great OCEA Yachts adventure began in the early 2000s. Designed by Michel Joubert, this OCEA Classic 100 combines sleek lines with solid sea-handling capabilities. Espiritu Santo was developed with world travellers in mind and lived up to its full potential from the very first trip in 2002, departing from Les Sables-d’Olonne to join the accompanying fleet for the America’s Cup in Auckland.

In 2015, with more than 15,000 engine hours recorded, Espiritu Santo returned to Les Sables-d’Olonne for eight months of work carried out by OCEA Yachts. In addition to a complete overhaul and a newly painted hull, the aft platform was also extended.

Recorded average fuel consumption during ocean crossings = 75 liters/hour @ 10.5 knots with one main generator running.
