Burgess Yachts has just announced that the 180-foot Oceanfast Oceana is for sale, with an asking price of about $9 million.
Oceana is a 1991 build that is instantly recognizable as the work of legendary designer Jon Bannenberg, with a unique, angular “fin” amidships alongside her top deck. She’s gone by numerous names over the years, including Obsession, True Blue, Maalana, Bolkiah I and Oceana C. More recently, she was sold in 2015 and then put on the market again in 2016.
A substantial refit was done in 2016. It included upgrades to the interior and exterior guest spaces, overhauls of her engines and generators, and painting of her aluminum hull.
She has twin 3,480-horsepower MTU engines and water jets, giving her a top speed of 20 knots and a range of 2,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. Quantum Zero-Speed stabilizers are installed to reduce rolling at anchor.
Accommodations aboard Oceana are for 10 to 12 guests in five staterooms, including an upper-deck master suite with steps leading up to a private observation lounge. It’s forward on the yacht with 180-degree views.
The interior décor is done in whites and muted earth tones, and was conceived by Bannenberg & Rowell (the London-based design firm run by Jon Bannenberg’s son, Dickie Bannenberg). Guests have access to three spaces for alfresco dining, private balconies to port and starboard on the main deck, two interior salons, and a sundeck hot tub.
Where to step aboard for a tour of Oceana: She is in the West Mediterranean.
