OCEAN VOYAGER EXPEDITION CATAMARAN

OCEAN VOYAGER EXPEDITION CATAMARAN

Clive Cussler, author of the famed Dirk Pitt novels and founder of the National Underwater Marine Agency (NUMA), has a habit of making cameo appearances in his tales. He often acts as deus ex machina to the plot and appears on the scene aboard a fantastic catamaran. Rogue is just such a fantastic catamaran and perfectly suited for global exploration and all manner of daring do on and below the water.

Rogue is a former university ocean mapping vessel and is a latest conversion by The Ocean Voyager who have successfully delivered the long range expedition vessels PINK SHRIMP, CHAGOS, and ACHARNE. Her catamaran form offers features seldom found on mono-hull expeditionary vessels. She is stable, fast, and efficient and acts as a comfortable multi-purpose offshore platform. She can traverse 7,000 nautical miles of open ocean without refueling. She has a large crane and extended deck that allow her to carry and deploy a 25' SAFE Boat AND up to a 5 ton submarine. She has commercial scanning sonar and a suite of electronics that are unrivaled in a 90' vessel. Her back deck provides a large outside living and working area. She is as efficient, self-contained, and green as can be with a 2500 watt solar system coupled to a large battery bank, LED lighting, 1600 gallon watermaker, waste treatment, 54 kw of electrical generating capability, excellent HVAC and air handling, and many duplicate systems for maximum reliability and comfort.

Rogue is a true global cruiser. Her twin 400 hp Cummins diesels give her an easy 12 knot cruise speed and up to 14 knots of speed when needed. She carries 3,800 gallons of water and 12,300 gallons of fuel. She is built entirely with high strength marine grade 5083 alloy and 6061-T6 framing for maximum stiffness and 3 foot transverse frame spacing and 1 foot longitudinal spacing. The plating is 5/16” thick under the waterline, ¼” for hull and decks and 3/16” for the superstructure. Rogue is an excellent high lattitudes catamaran and, while not ice classed, was was originally built for the waters around Newfoundland and Labrador where ice is common into July. Her comfort systems make her equally at home in the tropics.

So, Where do you want to go in life? Rogue will take you there. What do you want to discover? Rogue can find it. What equipment do you need? Rogue can carry and deploy it anywhere. She will do all of this in the comfort and style befitting a nautical hero like Dirk Pitt, Juan Cabrillo, or even Clive himself. But Rogue is not fiction. She is very real, expertly setup, and ready to take you on your life's adventures.

MAIN DECK

The 35’ x 30’ aft deck is impressive, designed to accommodate up to two large tenders, submarine, folding wing aircraft, or small helicopter, a trademark of Ocean Voyager. The hydraulic boom crane is specifically designed for easy launching and retrieval, and there is still ample living space for an outside living area with an old growth Elm slab table and 10’ x 25’ awning. The aft end of the deck has a staircase port and starboard leading to the swim platform and a watertight door leading to a tool room/dive center in the starboard hull and a large 16’ x 8’ laundry/watermaker room in the port hull.

Forward on the main deck has two large side decks with stairs on each side leading to the upper deck. The port side has a separate crew entry that leads to the galley and crew lounge. The forward end of the aft deck has one door, port and starboard leading to the engine rooms, and one large door leading to the salon. The salon is a spacious 25’ x 15’ with vaulted ceiling, dining area and living and entertainment area. To port and starboard are the staircase to each lower VIP suites. Further forward on the main deck, to starboard is the galley with a practical layout of beige Quartz counters, maple cutting board and further forward a private crew lounge with a dinette, one watch berth and networked TV.

Amidship forward of the galley is one 4-berth crew stateroom with a private ensuite toilet and shower. To starboard on the main deck is a small foyer, leading to a spacious queen bed stateroom with a large ensuite toilet and shower. The upper deck may be reached from both port and starboard outside stairs, or inside stair that leads directly from the galley to the pilothouse.

UPPER DECK

The upper deck consists of a full width deck with walk around side decks leading to the foredeck, anchor winch, mooring bits and deck storage, pilothouse, captain’s cabin with head and a ships office. Outside stairs lead from the upper deck to the fly bridge. Aft of the pilothouse is a large 25’ x 20’ deck with 2500 watt solar panels and the hydraulic boom crane. The pilothouse is large with adjustable air cushioned dual pilot chairs, 16’ wide electronics console 29 double glazed windows, three heated with windshield wipers. There are three Dutch watertight doors leading outside aft, to the port side deck and to the starboard side deck. Further aft to starboard are the ships electrical panels and a ships office with a desk and drawers. Amidships is the captain’s single cabin with an en suite toilet and shower. Aft of the pilothouse is a stair leading to the very large fly-bridge with the electronics mast and upper helm.

LOWER DECK

Entered from the salon are two lower VIP suites with a foyer, walk-in closet, a queen bed stateroom and large head and shower. These staterooms are very private and have a beautiful view from the 3 large lower windows port and starboard. Aft on the lower deck separated by a watertight bulkhead are the engine rooms which are two level with excellent access to all machinery.

COMMENTS

The Ocean Voyager has just completed a complete conversion for offshore remote exploration with a focus on efficiency, speed, range, reliability and water access. Her unique huge aft deck is characteristic of all Ocean Voyager’s conversions allowing for storage of multiple tenders as well a fantastic outside living area with easy and practical water access.  She was also conceived to be self-reliant, with clear access to all mechanical functions of the vessel. A major effort in the conversion was also into building a vessel with a large solar array that can be at anchor without the constant usage of the generators, a self-contained waste treatment system, as well as economical, and reliable engines for a fantastic cruising speed with low fuel consumption. Rogue's paramount feature is her 8 ton deck crane. This is unheard of in a vessel in her size, allowing the launching and use of large tenders. The 25’ Safe boat has a range of approximately 250nm with reserve. This feature greatly increases the vessel’s ultimate range for extensive research and exploration of areas not accessible with a large vessel.
