Oculus is the first “design launch” of Schöpfer
Yachts LLC. This 250-foot vessel was designed by E. Kevin
Schöpfer, founder and owner of his namesake company.
Designed to accommodate 14 guests in extraordinary comfort
and style, Oculus is a long distance cruising yacht capable
of speeds upwards of 21 knots.
The exterior styling is representative of the jaw and eye
socket bone structure of large oceanic fish and mammals. Featuring
a dramatic reverse bow configuration, the yacht’s armature
balances an elegant expression of symmetry and structure.
In addition to the bow, Oculus also features a “low
rider profile”. This slightly lowered surface allows
for new side recreational areas, alternate dockage access
and light cruising openness. Lateral retractable side panels
close this area when heavier wave action is indicated.
The interior features of Oculus focus on a 12 foot high ceiling
in the main salon, a cylindrical double height dining room,
central stair and elevator tube, and seemingly anatomical
ceiling and floor lighting extensions giving definition to
the seating areas.
The second level is the dedicated Owner’s suite. Living
areas and bedchambers are divided by a series of four freestanding
tubes, which house bath and storage necessities.
In addition to the main common stair, the second Owner’s
stair connects to the third level aft private salon and deck
/ water feature.
The third level also contains the forward pilothouse and
separate captain’s quarters. The generous open decks
with separate water features are located forward and aft for
convenient guest use. Specifications and plans are in the
final stages of completion and will be posted at a later time.
