1990 Blohm & Voss



Grand Ocean is currently undergoing a major re-fit with a new exterior/interior, paint and technical upgrades throughout the yacht. These works will be done in time for the  season 2020.

Grand Ocean is a legendary Blohm+Voss built yacht, originally named GOLDEN ODYSSEY. She was designed by Martin Francis with interior by Alberto Pinto. She is still the pinnacle of style and performance- with a cruising speed of 16 knots, a maximum speed of 18 knots and a range of 9,100 NM.

Spectacular views and the ability to transform the huge mosaic outdoor swimming pool into a dance floor. She is currently undergoing a re-fit with technical and systems upgrades. The interior is being re-styled and brought to "new" status.

The original owner was a keen diver and  oceanographer and the yacht has a large live coral aquarium rising through two deck levels below a glass-bottomed swimming pool. A glass wall in the formal dining room also looks onto the aquarium. The updated guest accommodation features two double staterooms with dressing rooms, one double cabin and four twin cabins, all with en suite bathrooms. The large outdoor mosaic swimming pool can be transformed into a dance floor.

This vessel was maintained by Blohm+Voss in Hamburg throughout her life with regular shipyard re-fits and maintenance performed in Hamburg.

Building a double-deck aquarium with one side acting as a glass wall to a dining room and the top acting as a glass bottom to a swimming pool is no simple task. Blohm+Voss' engineers made it happen.

Blohm+Voss is now part of LURSSEN and continues to provide full support and service for all Blohm+Voss vessels.
