OCULUS SEA GIANT - Shöpfer Yachts was founded in 2008 as a US based company dedicated to the pursuit of advanced yacht aesthetics and technology. Shöpfer Yachts is among a new breed of yacht companies, which will secure strategic alliances with the world's finest naval architects and shipyards. This strategy will allow the flexibility to explore a wide range of design venues while insuring these designs meet and exceed the highest level of maritime standards. As we enter the next generation of yachting design, the company offers a design collection to the global yachting community and to prospective owners who share a vision of innovation and excellence. Oculus is the first "design launch" of Shöpfer Yachts LLC. Enough to make Captain Nemo blush with envy, this 250-foot vessel was designed by E. Kevin Shöpfer, founder and owner of his namesake company. Designed to accomodate 12 guests in extraordinary comfort and style, Oculus is a long distance cruising yacht capable of speeds upwards of 25 knots. The interior features of Oculus focus on a 12 foot ceiling in the maine salon, a cylindrical double height dining room, central stair and elevator tube, and seemingly anatomical ceiling and floor lighting extensions giving definition to the seating areas. The second level is the dedicated owner's suite. Living areas and bedchambers are divided by a series of four freestanding tubes, which house bath and storage necessities. In addition to the main common stair, the second owner's stair connects to the third level aft private salon and deck/water feature. The third level also contains the forward pilothouse and separate captain's quarters. The generous open decks with separate water features are located forward and aft for convenient guest use.
