The Two Oceans 870 Luxury Power Catamaran construction began late in 2021.
The Two Oceans 870 Power Catamaran is yet another full custom luxury power catamaran,. She is the 15th large custom catamaran that we have designed in partnership with world-renown custom catamaran manufacturer Two Oceans Marine Manufacturing and we are going to take you through the build as it progresses by means of a series of videos.
In this video, you can see how the build of the plug starts out. Every single CNC cut piece of wood is detailed by Du Toit Yacht Design. For this, we use a range of technical software, the main one being CATIA.
CATIA is useful as it offers a surface generating and mechanical package. In this, we can make organic shapes and surfaces for our vessels making it an immensely powerful package for yacht design. In designing vessels, this gives us the ability to be highly creative in the design process and therefore the offering to the client. It offers two main advantages for us: generative shape design – giving us the organic complex curves and shapes for the hull and coachroof designs – and part design (solid modelling) which allows for more intricate structural detailing.
JC Espinosa collaborated with us on the interior layout and design.
The Two Oceans 870 Power Catamaran has four levels:
- The main deck housing the saloon, galley, and a fore and aft cockpit
- The lower deck with each hull housing a VIP stateroom and a guest stateroom
- An upper deck with the owner’s stateroom and a private fore and aft cockpit
- The upper level or flybridge
The Two Oceans 870 Power Catamaran has been completely custom designed and will be custom built for her owner and their guests to enjoy the watery playgrounds of the Seychelles, Mozambique, and Madagascar.
