All Ocean Yachts is pleased to announce the design release of its latest Explorer Yacht, the All Ocean 133’ (40.5m.) Bray Design, AH (All Hemispheres) OCEAN ROVER Explorer Yacht. Bray Yacht Design utilized their awarding winning high efficiency hull design and created the basic design and layouts, then a team approach was employed to refine all aspects of the vessel to assure it exceeds the mission parameters of a worldwide exploration and charter vessel capable of operations in all hemispheres.
The team members involved are Pat Bray of Bray Design, John DeCaro of All Ocean Yachts, Winston Clarke ex-captain of Bigfish, Michael Kirschstein of Kirschstein Design and David Darwent, D2 Project Management. The team brings a superb balance of design expertise and practical experience to the design and build that is rare to find. This team created a highly seaworthy, low maintenance and operating cost vessel with features that you rarely see in a vessel in this size range.
The AOY AH OCEAN ROVER is a highly flexible platform that can be configured to meet a host of different uses, extended cruising, remote exploration, scientific work and worldwide charter operations in All Hemispheres.
Some of the AH OCEAN ROVER’s exceptional features are the extensive use of glass to create an atmosphere that allows the owner and guests to always be interactive with the environment they are in. The primary layout has an owner’s deck behind the wheelhouse that allows for stunning views from all areas of the owner’s suite. In addition they have a large private aft deck that can be configured to their requirements, from lounging to workout area. The aft deck overlooks the massive tender deck which can accommodate a wide variety of boats and toys. The deck can comfortably fit a primary tender of up to 32’ (9.5m), secondary tender up to 24’ (7.3m), a number of small water craft or a submarine and smaller tenders. In addition to all of the flexibility of watercraft selection, the deck can also accommodate a helicopter landing pad. When the watercraft are all deployed, the boat deck is transformed into a huge beach with easy water access plus there are fold down glass balconies to port and starboard that all relax out over the water.
In addition to the multi use main deck space there is an expansive flybridge dedicated to guest relaxation in all weather conditions. The Flybridge has a large dining area and bar and there is a forward sun pad and seating, all of which are positioned to take advantage of the stunning vistas available from this area. At the aft section is a large hot tub and raised sun pad. The main section of the flybridge is covered by a hard top and can be heated or cooled as required for use in all hemispheres. This is a dedicated relaxation zone, where guest will say “AH” as they enjoy its many features. In addition to the flybridge seating there is a comfortable foredeck seating area.
The main saloon incorporates large windows with a transforming use interior where the formal dining zone changes into an entertainment area. The glass fold down bulwarks combined with the low lounging area to bring forth an un-interrupted view of exotic land and seascapes.
The lower deck features four large guest cabins with extra large port lights to provide enhanced natural light and viewing.
The AOY AH OCEAN ROVER’s mission profile demands that she has exceptional crew accommodations to handle the extended passage and remote area operations. The OCEAN ROVER can be operated in traditional cruising areas with smaller crew. However she has been designed to accommodate all of the additional crew members that are necessary and often not considered during design when creating a world exploration vessel, such as dive instructors, fishing guides, pilots, nannies, instructors and others.
The whole design team is dedicated to making all aspects of operation efficient and “GREEN” by incorporating proven technologies and cutting edge developments.
The OCEAN ROVER will incorporate extensive solar cells and shaft generators with the new TESLA battery power supply system to reduce the generator sizes and enhance operation of the vessel in a wide variety of operating parameters.
