Arrived to St. Petersburg, FL in October from Cape Town, South Africa on its own bottom.
To say that Oxygen is well equipped is a gross understatement - launched at the end of 2020, she is the yard's third electric catamaran and without a doubt the most capable. Equipped with the Torqeedo Deep Blue system, the gold standard in electric yacht propulsion, and for good reason. This R5 was built in epoxy eglass with extensive carbon reinforcing and construction, including the entire coachroof and all spars. She has the galley and salon volume of a much larger yacht and with her twin forward sailing cockpit doors together with her large aft cockpit doors, she possesses amazing flow and energy as one moves fore and aft. Amazing views of whats ahead and below from the overhanging unstayed carbon longeron down the center of her bow. Move aft via her secure sailing handling cockpit, all the way back to her huge "dock-like" stern scoops to enter the warm Florida waters. Under sail she is a pleasure to manage from her secure sailing cockpit with the electric line driver and primaries making her capable of push button sail trimming of the Jib-sheet, main-sheet, and traveller at the same time, from one position. She can also be sporty of course and rewards an eager crew with a deck gear plan and extended longeron that is able to fly dual headsails. This is especially useful in light air. Oxygen is an incredible yacht and available now, ready to cruise, with an extensive cruising equipment list over and above the launching specs.
