The Italian yard Ocean King has revealed the latest model in its Ducale series of Ocean King Explorers: the Ducale 118. The Ocean King Ducale explorer yacht series, designed by VYD Studio of Venice and now including sizes of 88, 108, 118 and 148, is defined by contemporary exterior styling.

The Ducale 118 will be a full-displacement yacht built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. She was designed to a brief of a bold modern, yet timeless, Italian exterior style and a large volume of 402GT for her 36 metre LOA, offers a five cabin interior layout with a full-beam master stateroom on the main deck which incorporates an office, and an upper deck with separate captain’s quarters aft of the wheelhouse. A crew of seven is also accommodated for on board.

The huge aft deck area offers plenty of opportunities for toy and tender storage up to nine metres long, which negates the need for a tender garage. When the tenders and toys are launched from the aft deck, this space will be able to transform into a huge, open-air beach club. It can be enjoyed with shade thanks to a sun awning or al fresco for dinners.


Alberto Ballerin of Ocean King commented, “these are exciting times for Ocean King. With the addition of the Ducale 118 to the Ducale series, we can offer to our customers a completely different type of Explorer Yacht. One that they can be absolutely assured of the strength and ruggedness and long-range ocean cruising capability that all Ocean Kings are known for.”
