New yacht Ocean Club Ninety has been cleverly enhanced with several innovative design solutions
Since announcing details of its exciting new model, Project 8X, earlier this year at Dusseldorf Boat Show, Sunseeker’s world-class team of experts at its Design and Technology Centre based in Poole, Dorset have been reﬁning the remarkable design and engineering in the lead up to its launch. The new model will take the name Ocean Club Ninety and will be built in a new production facility at its main shipyard.
The yacht will carry substantially more volume than any competitive product, equivalent to a generous 20% increase against the company’s own 86 Yacht which will continue in build due to its popularity.
Keen to showcase the fresh design direction of Sunseeker’s next generation of larger models, the new yacht’s exterior lines have been modiﬁed, allowing the Beach Club to become an even more impressive space. This large spacious deck measuring over 6m x 4m is great for family and friends to socialize close to the water, perhaps utilizing the large built-in BBQ. Importantly, these innovative ‘X-TEND’ sunbeds will allow for a multiplicity of arrangements in what is likely to be the key entertainment space on board.
The ‘X-TEND’ sunbeds have been skillfully integrated within the design. The sunbeds can be operated electrically to either raise upwards to face the covered cockpit seating area or alternatively, they can be lowered to face aft at Beach Club level. Perfect for relaxing with family and friends, whatever the time of day.
The door of the garage has been set on an angle to not only allow for the design of the sunbeds but to also increase the remarkable storage capacity on-board. The adjoining deck area with a large hydraulic platform provides the space to house and launch a Jet Ski, a 15’ Williams 460 SportJet and two SeaBobs, housed in dedicated self-draining lockers.
Up top on the ﬂybridge which is 25% larger than a comparable yacht, there is the option of an inﬁnity spa pool and sideboard with second integrated BBQ. A wet bar with stainless steel sink, drawer fridges, ice maker and the glass bar top is also available to make the most of this popular entertainment area. Handrails are now capped in teak with glazing below, allowing for uninterrupted panoramic views. The carbon ﬁbre hardtop with full-width retractable canopy provides the shade for exceptionally generous seating and dining area that can be conﬁgured or left open-plan depending on the owner’s exact requirements.
Within the cockpit, there is the option of ﬁxed or freestanding furniture, an integrated wet bar with a fridge, ice maker, and stainless sink, an integrated full height electrically operated privacy blind and matching teak-capped handrails with glazing below to enhance the open-plan feel.
The foredeck provides yet another destination with three separate seating groups plus sunbather with electrically adjustable backrests, protected by a sail canopy option. Later in the day, the foredeck cinema option with a laser projector and the 140-inch screen will no doubt capture the imagination of all guests, whatever their age.
Its unique main deck, penthouse-style saloon and luxurious staterooms offer a new-found design direction and materials selection providing elegant interiors to enchant any owner. The interior ﬁnish combines traditional elegance with contemporary updates. The layering of textural elements and the mix of furnishings and fabrics feels timeless with a modern twist that oozes sleek simplicity and sophistication.
The considerable saloon measures a remarkable 8.8m in length by 5.6m width providing space for sumptuous modular lounge seating and chaise longue to port. Floor-to-ceiling windows ﬂood the living accommodation with natural daylight complemented by sliding doors to port if required.
The elegant furnishings and ﬂawless design are replicated below deck. A spectacular wooden feature wall leads owners into the luxurious full-beam master stateroom offering panoramic views via its 2.5m feature windows. A key feature to the stateroom is ‘his & hers’ pivot-hinge wardrobes and drawer units adjoining feature lobby shelving sitting behind paneled full-height mirrors.
The broad forward VIP cabin with dedicated access and two twin aft cabins which can be converted into doubles provides a yacht that can comfortably sleep eight guests in the same modern, cosseting comfort afforded to the master.
For the charter market, an optional ﬁfth cabin is even possible in lieu of the standard master stateroom whilst for certain markets, a lower galley with direct crew cabin access is also feasible. The crew cabin, with capacity for four or ﬁve, beneﬁts from a kitchenette, crew mess, en suite, and provision of two appliances.
The Ocean Club Ninety is set to surprise and delight at every turn. Every single element has been carefully considered in meticulous detail, exuding a sophistication and detail hitherto only found in custom superyachts.
