Sunseeker Ocean 182
The Ocean 182, named after its gross tonnage, possesses an impressive 2,060 square feet of interior space spanning three decks. The internal footprint is comparable to a much larger yacht, contributing to an overall feeling of spaciousness on board. With a significant interior volume and an infinity main deck layout, the Ocean 182 caters to an owner seeking unparalleled luxury and comfort. From the single helm on the upper deck to the spacious main deck saloon, every aspect of the Ocean 182 offers an extraordinary on-board experience.
Powered by Twin MAN V12 1650 or 1900 engines, the latest Ocean model to join the Sunseeker range achieves a comfortable top speed of 27 knots. Meanwhile, at a displacement speed of 12 knots, this yacht has an extended range of 1,100 nautical miles.
With three main exterior spaces on board the Ocean 182, there is no shortage of outdoor space. The 6 metre by 4 metre Beach Club provides all the water-level essentials. An optional barbecue grill and Sonos speakers provide entertainment, while the hydraulic retractable sea-stair and bathing platform enable accessibility into and out of the water. The bathing platform has a maximum lifting capacity of 750 kilograms and can comfortably store a tender and jet ski. The award-winning Sunseeker X-TEND™ sunbed offers two seating arrangements to the aft cockpit and Beach Club. Ample space for water toys, racking for towels or diving equipment can be stored beneath the Sunseeker X-TEND™ when not in use, optimising the space and maximising functionality. The Beach Club leads to a generous aft cockpit with loose furniture complemented by additional refrigeration and an ice maker.
The foredeck is a social space with several seating arrangements capable of seating a large group. Twin chaise longues on the port and starboard side accompany a large sunpad forward. Beneath the windshield lies a comfortable bench seat, complete with cupholders, marine speakers, refrigeration drawers, mood lighting and a sail canopy for day to night cruising.
The Ocean 182 epitomises the floating penthouse concept. Those who step on board are immediately met with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors on the starboard side and matching windows on the port side to provide uninterrupted views from bow to stern, connecting guests to the marine environment while enjoying the comforts of the interior. The main deck is a dedicated space for socialising and entertaining, offering 671 square feet of living space with a stunning collection of contemporary loose furniture to fill the space. There is flexibility to choose freestanding furniture that suits the owner's requirements, from large U-shaped sofas to comfortable lounge seating.
The unique spiral staircase with minimalist stair treads contributes to an unimpeded view from the inside. Forward of the staircase resides the semi-open galley with a pantograph door to the port side deck. Comprehensively equipped with Miele appliances and an option to include additional refrigeration and a 34-bottle wine cooler, the galley offers incredible space and storage. On the starboard side, a generous dining table for eight guests and a bar forward becomes an ideal space for serviced or informal dining.
The fluidity between outdoor and indoor living spaces is unmatched in this yacht class. With retractable sliding doors, the upper deck can fully close to create a third indoor living space or left open to form an al-fresco balcony, offering the owner ultimate flexibility. The sole helm console on this yacht, situated on the upper deck, has not been seen on a Sunseeker before. Next to the helm, an L-shaped bar is conveniently located for service with crew or for owner use. The bar is well-equipped with refrigeration, ice maker and wash basin for convenience, servicing the indoor and outdoor upper deck spaces. Further aft, on the starboard side, there is an extension of the saloon with U-shaped seating and a fixed TV unit with storage on the port side. Beyond the upper saloon lies an outside space on the upper deck with loose lounge seating and expansive panoramic glazing offering far reaching views out to the horizon.
Below deck, the light and elegant accommodation comprises three well-appointed double cabins and a twin, all with en suite in a standard configuration. The full-beam owner's cabin positioned amidships is an indulgent escape for the owner, whilst the forward VIP provides an equally luxurious experience for guests.
Offering a contemporary yet timeless interior, the Ocean 182 benefits from a highly customisable interior to suit the owner's style and taste. The interior, curated in collaboration with Design Unlimited, is characterised by soft neutral tones and a sumptuous blend of textured materials. Every inch of this yacht is finished to an immaculate standard, showcasing recessed ambient mood lighting, stainless steel trim detailing, and specially designed feature bulkheads.
The Ocean 182 is a masterpiece of design and engineering, offering a new paradigm of space, comfort, and luxury on the water. From its flexible upper deck to the vast main deck, this yacht seamlessly blends sophistication and practicality. With its remarkable performance, innovative features, and exquisite interior, the Ocean 182 sets a new standard in refined and comfortable boating.
