This new design was created to enable the owners live aboard in both summer and winter alike, and in all weather conditions. The Ocean Maxi 70 is a precursor of her new larger sister the Ocean Maxi 80, and these two models constitute a new bluewater line of yachts. The popular size of Ocean Maxi 70 allows for having space for a permanent crew member in minimum length. The design philosophy and parameters follow the same concepts of the new, larger version. The smaller Ocean Maxi 70 has one less cabin than the larger Ocean Maxi 80, but shares the same saloon in the RS and DS versions developed. In order to give the saloon a feeling of space, the galley can be closed or open. In the open version, one can have a direct view of the deckhouse front window.
The boat’s light displacement hull is powerful and beamy, providing excellent form stability and a nice, smooth motion at sea. Mr Maurizio Cossutti, who designed the hull shape and parameters, especially optimized the prismatic coefficient, for fast all round performance with medium and strong wind ranges within a modern wide stern form.
The steering system includes twin steering wheels in the cockpit, and only one rudder in the water for a positive and easy control with extraordinary sensibility in all circumstances. The light lifting keel provides stability while, at the same time, it can be lifted in small ports and bays.
Ocean Maxi 70 would be a fun boat to own, and sail the waters of the world, and because of her advanced design she would have a long and successful life. She is a modern boat, but at the same time we have worked hard to preserve her softness and harmony of the classic boat. The same can be said of the aesthetics, her look is new, clean and modern, and not tied up to any short lived fashion. The deck has a modern design, uncluttered surfaces, and straightforward & simple solutions for sail handling, as well as ease of life at sea.
