Iconic 73m Coral Ocean Joins Antigua Charter Yacht Show

By George Bains

The iconic 73m Lurssen superyacht, Coral Ocean, will continue her global tour as she heads to the Antigua Yacht Show. Hosted by Ahoy Club, the newly refitted Coral Ocean will be available for viewings from 5th to 8th December.

Formerly Coral Island, the renowned Lurssen yacht underwent a transformative €35,000,000 rebuild since joining the Ahoy Club fleet – which includes 54m Mischief and 35m Rascal (ex-Settlement).

First launched in 1994, Coral Ocean was a milestone project at the time and remains the 43rd largest in the remarkable Lurssen fleet. Penned by legendary Australian designer Jon Bannenberg, it seems only fitting that she should now be with Australian owners. And the legacy was furthered with the contribution of Jon’s son Dickie in the rebuild.

The transformation project has enhanced Coral Ocean's offering as a charter yacht, while embracing the luxury and elegance of the Ahoy Club fleet. The superyacht still accommodates twelve guests in six beautiful staterooms, though all guestrooms have been elevated to be of equal quality – leaving every guest onboard feeling like the owner.

On the exterior, Coral Ocean’s sundeck has received a major overhaul featuring a newly created sun lounge, a glass-floored spa pool, spacious loungers, and even an indoor bar with floor-to-ceiling retractable glass windows.

Following her 2022 relaunch, Coral Ocean attended the European yacht shows and then headlined the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The 73-metre superyacht will now turn plenty of heads in the Antigua Yacht Club Marina as one of the world’s most enticing opportunities on the charter market.
