OCEAN CRUISING YACHTS - OC52


OC52 #1 off Bermuda OC 52 #1 (shown here) was the only 52 completed while OC was open. Another hull was built but was not finished off until the 90's, long after OC closed. 5201 was a beautiful boat, well suited to her owners' purposes as they actively participated in her design and construction.


OC52 Under sail OC 52 #2 was built many years after Ocean Cruising Yachts was closed. The hull had been molded in the early 80's, but the finish work started in 1994. 0C52 foredeck This is a foredeck shot of the second OC 52 built. She has a flush foredeck and was designed for short handed sailing. Note the Leisure Furl boom unit.

The deck hardware was in large part custom welded stainless steel with extra large chrome vents on dorade boxes for improved ventilation.

OC52 main cabin port side The interior is built of Honduras mahogany with a teak and holly cabin sole. Louvered doors were used throughout to improve ventilation in the lockers. Locker hardware was specially built to hide the latches. The overhead under the foredeck was mahogany strips over a lightweight foam core to insulate and preserve weight. Space was carefully planned and mockups of interior components assisted in creating the best balance of storage and open space The large galley has a number of nice features including special contoured moldings that are easy on the eye and hands, super insulated refrigeration/ freezer units, a wine locker below the refer for chilling, and a bottled water locker. The aft head, although by far the smaller or two, shows details like a rounded sink front and mahogany towel racks.
