Modern lines, large windows cutting through the broadside, true all-weather glazed flybridge, and interior volumes for grand cruising. This is how the new creature from
, successor to the previous 90-footer (we tell you about it Here), already a great success in the range. It is the new Ocean 182, a 27.10-meter LOA ready to offer new horizons for owners seeking a yacht aimed at maximizing the cruising experience. All, to go along with a pair of MAN V12s for top speeds of 27 knots and over 1100 nautical miles of range at 12 knots.

A new grand-cruiser, in short, the one presented by the British brand, which thus introduces a new yacht to its Ocean range, a design that seems to have a lot to offer owners looking for a versatile hull, ideal for cruising in both colder places and warmer climates. The 4 double cabins and large open-space salon on the main deck then make the living rooms usable for larger groups.

Starting with the lines, the new Ocean 182 immediately presents a hull that is strong in the shipyard’s distinctive features, with large windows cutting through the dead work, simultaneously ensuring good light on the lower deck and a family feeling akin to the brand’s aesthetic. The main deck then features an all-glass main body, which is contrasted by the two outdoor lounge areas. In fact, aft, just beyond the beach area, are two large double sundecks-overhanging towards the stern-while, on the same level of the deck, the cockpit takes its place instead, furnished with two facing sofas served by small tables. The latter area is covered by the upper fly, thus providing shelter from both sun and weather.

Also on the main deck, forward, the second outdoor lounge area comes to life. A large central sundeck surrounded by broadside sofas and a sunken couch in the deckhouse are located here, providing a 270-degree lounge overlooking the sea.

To conclude the outdoor spaces, the enclosed flybridge still offers a balcony overlooking the sea, a large terrace located above the cockpit and overlooking the entire aft area. S

Shifting the focus instead to the interior spaces, the volumes of Sunseeker’s 182 fully reveal the intention of making this 27-meter boat a grand-cruiser. The spaces are large, bright, offering brand-new solutions and maximizing the potential offered by the square footage. Starting with the “upper decks,” the enclosed and fully air-conditioned flybridge offers, at the bow, the command post, principal, in this case, being absent at the main-deck for the gain of increased space. Aft of the bridge, then, the flybridge comes to life as an elevated lounge area, with a mobile bar and lounge overlooking the sea. Several furniture options are available here.

Moving to the main deck, strengthened by the relocation of the bridge on the fly, spaces are managed on two large, distinct volumes. Indeed, aft we find a large open-plan living room designed with usability and conviviality in mind. Here the furnishings offer a large area dedicated to socializing, with several seats and a large sofa, always leaving room for owners to select different furniture options.

In the bow, however, is the kitchen, semi-enclosed and equipped with a large work area and dining area, with a large table for eight populating the starboard space, accommodating up to eight people in a dining area facing the sea.

Finally, the sleeping area comes to life on the lower deck, bathed in natural light thanks to large windows at the broadside. There are four double cabins here, three of which are double and one twin. Each, invariably, with a private bathroom.

The master stateroom takes its place just forward of the center-ship, bolstered by the maximum beam and large windows that characterize this section of the hull, offering, in addition to the double bed, a study area, a broadside sofa, and an en-suite bathroom. Instead, the VIP cabin is in the bow. Finally, midship are the remaining two double cabins, one double and one single (the latter convertible into a double), both with private bathrooms.

Toward the stern, on the other hand, there is the crew area, separate from the guest quarters, complete with private toilet, double cabins with bunk beds and separate living area.
