This is a very special yacht combining the talents of Dan Shead (Sunseeker designer) and Palmer Johnson (known for the very high quality builds). Twin MTU diesels and a jet turbine combine to offer a unique yachting experience.

OCI CIORNIE is a truly unique motor yacht and at the time of her launch almost visionary. The result is an extraordinary design and build with a budget allowing for an incredibly detailed and lengthy design and build process. This is a yacht for an owner looking for something very different. The engineering is seldom if even seen on a private yacht and would appeal to someone who knows and understands out of the ordinary thinking. The deck layout works very well as essentially the saloon and forward outside spaces are one level. The interior of the main saloon have design nods to vintage aircraft design and build which is spectacular. There is, perhaps, some work to do to the sleeping accommodation which could benefit from some updating together with a modification required to the owners cabin for a double berth arrangement.

OCI CIORNIE is equipped with a CODAG system composed of two diesel engines coupled to two waterjets through a reduction gear together with a Lycoming gas turbine. The gas turbine is coupled to a surface propeller through gear reducer and power is transmitted to an Arneson drive. The system is based on that developed for use on naval ships. The objective was to build a boat capable of achieving the highest performance in terms of speed achievable at the time of the project.

Combined diesel and gas (CODAG) is a type of propulsion system for ships which need a maximum speed that is considerably faster than their cruise speed, particularly warships like modern frigates or corvettes.

The owner was a man at the forefront in the use of innovative technologies and the combination of its demands with the genius of the famous Don Shead and the professionalism of the shipyard Palmer Johnson have created a unique product and at the same time a yacht that is really very special.
