A submarine, two hovercraft, an aircraft with folding wings, a floating car, inflatable toys. Those are just a few of the original water toys for which MC Yacht International's OceaNemo 44 sport utility yacht can be equipped.
The La Spezia, Italy-based company, creator of the project, signed a partnership agreement with major international companies that specialize in creating curious marine gadgets.
The project, born from a collaboration among MC Yacht CEO Aldo Manna, designer Fulvio De Simoni and French shipyard Ocea — which will build the series — has come to fruition in partnerships with producers of gadgets, amenities and toys. Among them are NautiBuoy, of the U.K., and Texan FunAir. Both are producers of aquatic inflatables.
Owners of sport utility yachts will be able to choose from among a range of toys to explore the sea once anchored or in port. Examples include Quadrofoil, a Slovenian-built, all-electric hydrofoiling watercraft; Seamagine, a California producer that specializes in submersibles and submarines for private use, with depths ranging from 150 to 1,500 meters and patented submarine technology; and the Marlin II and III, two- and three-seat hovercrafts by The British Hovercraft Co.
On board the OceaNemo 44, the toys can be stored in the full-beam waterline garage.
The raised deck can hold a 19- to 30-foot sportfisherman and a 30- to 33-foot daysailer produced by MC Yacht partners Al Custom e Brenta, respectively.
Other partnerships will be announced in the few months.
