Italian yard Cantieri Navali’s Chioggia shipyard has announced the launch of the Ocean King 130 explorer yacht, which has been named Genesia.
Built to RINA classification from a steel hull with aluminium superstructure, the explorer vessel has four decks and was launched in the Veneto town of Chioggia last month.
Measuring 40m in length, Andrea Vallicelli was in charge of the exterior design, while the naval architecture was developed by inNave. The yacht features a grey hull, offset with near-luminescent orange accents. Vital statistics include a beam of 10.25m and a 3.3m draft.
Ten guests can be accommodated for on board across five cabins, and the crew quarters can house a team of six.
Genesia’s raised pilothouse offers 360-degree views out to sea, and the aft deck is split between an al fresco dining area, and tender storage space. The bathing platform further aft provides easy water access, and the sheltered cockpit in accessed from a central staircase.
Twin Caterpillar C32 diesel engines provide a top speed of 13.5 knots; more impressively, Genesia can manage 7,500 nautical miles at her cruising speed of eight knots, thanks to a substantial fuel capacity of 170,000 litres.
