Exclusive: Semi-Submersible Vessel Transforms Into 146m Expedition Yacht

By Danny Wiser

OK, the 146m global expedition yacht, has been launched at Karmarine Shipyard in Turkey.

The expedition motor yacht was initially delivered in 1982 as a semi-submersible support yacht named AS Super Servant 3 before her recent refit.

Her incredible conversion process has led to a particularly striking design thanks to studio Bozca Design.

Designer Timur Bozca was delighted to have the chance to work alongside the shipyard in his home country.

He said: “Working with people with extraordinary vision is a factor that gives me great pleasure.

“In this way, we are given the opportunity to push our limits. The Karmarine team completely meets this definition.”

The yacht can accommodate 70 different toys such as a 46m sailing yacht, tenders, buggies, amphibious vehicles and a sea plane, making her any fun-seeking adult’s dream.

Loading toys and tenders onto the yacht could not be easier thanks to her ability to submerge with almost 70% of herself under water.

This submerging capacity, gives her the appearance of an island, a feature requested by her owner.

The idea of a floating island belongs to the owner. We aimed to create the unique feelings of being on an undiscovered island at OK,” said Bozca.

With exceptional features, such as sun deck Jacuzzi, pool surrounded by glass windows, outdoor cinema, tennis court, botanical garden and four large aquariums there is endless entertainment on OK.

"We aimed to create the unique feelings of being on an undiscovered island at OK."
