HMY Yacht Sales to debut Okean yacht brand at FLIBS

The Okean 50 Flybridge Motor Yacht was developed by Italian yacht designer Paolo Ferragni.

The Okean 50 Flybridge Motor Yacht was developed by Italian yacht designer Paolo Ferragni.

HMY Yacht Sales said it will introduce the yacht brand Okean at the Nov. 1-5 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

HMY said the highlight of the premiere will be the Okean 50 Flybridge Motor Yacht.

As the exclusive representative for Okean, HMY said it will debut two additional models — the 53’ Express Cruiser and the 80' Luxury Motor Yacht — in 2018.

All three Okean models were developed by Italian yacht designer Paolo Ferragni. An experienced designer with more than 15 years of naval-industry expertise, Ferragni has worked with many of Europe’s most impressive builders.

“The Okean product line is the perfect complement to our collection of new yacht brands,” Steve Moynihan, president of HMY Yacht Sales, said in a statement. “In particular, the Okean 50’ offers a unique design with the open concept our motoryacht clients are looking for.”

HMY said the open space of the Okean 50' creates the feeling of being outside — with unobstructed views — yet with all the comforts of the indoors.

“We’re extremely excited to offer this boat for the first time, anywhere,” Moynihan said.
