The sleek sister to the Ocean Eco 60 and Eco EX 60, the Coupé offers an unlimited range, generous social spaces and exceptional handling, even in the toughest conditions.

The first Ocean Eco 60 Coupé has been sold to clients with a passion for diving and were drawn to its sleek aesthetic. The emission-free operation coupled with its generous internal and external deck space of 230 square metres are also attracting buyers. The first unit of this vessel is now in production.

As with the Eco 60, the new model has been designed with responsible yachting at its core. Its expansive roof has been specifically conceived for its integrated solar panels, giving her a transatlantic range and virtually unlimited autonomy. The solar panels take energy from the sun and store it in the battery packs that power the electric engines.

In the full-electric variant, the Coupé is powered by two 250 kW electric motors, connected to a 150–280 kWh battery pack, which is powered by the sun and generators. The solar panels reach 18 kWp (Kilowatt peak), which is best in class compared to competitors, while the diesel generators produce two x 100 kW/ DC each.

Access to the water is easier than ever with twin bathing platforms. From bow to stern, this remarkable 10.2-metre beamed catamaran offers impressive space, modern style and stable sailing.

The aft deck is appointed with plush U-shaped seating for ten guests, perfect for al fresco dining or sunset cocktails. From here, guests can access the enclosed saloon and spectacular entertaining area.

The generous galley comes complete with full size fridge-freezer and features a large separate island with bar and stools. To starboard, a large dining table for eight provides the perfect spot for family and friends to enjoy a meal.

A large L-shaped observation seating area accompanies the helm station with commanding views forward. Mid-ship two side companionways lead to the lower deck and accommodation. Two configurations are available with this model, the owner layout and the charter layout.

The owner layout benefits from a generous master suite, designed to occupy the entire starboard hull, complete with ensuite and private study. For charter, the study transforms into an additional guest cabin.

Further guest accommodation is located within the portside hull and features a double room and twin room with plenty of storage space. Both offer ensuite double shower facilities.

The foredeck provides another social space with two separate seating arrangements plus oversized sun beds, complete with ample storage and refrigeration options.

Its unique main deck, penthouse-style salon, and luxurious staterooms offer a new-found design direction and material selection, providing elegant interiors to enchant any owner. The layering of textural elements and the mix of furnishings and fabrics feel timeless, with a modern twist that exudes quality, simplicity and sophistication.

Milan Henn, Head of Design at ALVA Yachts, said, “The new Ocean Eco 60 Coupé was created to supplement the existing family of 60-foot yachts from ALVA. It offers a sportier, sleek exterior with a low-profile silhouette that cuts through the water.

“This new model is full with innovative new features and entertainment options and, at 18.4 metres, this yacht maximises on everything.”

Just like the other models in the ALVA range, the Coupé is designed for adventures and as a true ocean-going cruising yacht. The Coupé can cruise efficiently for up to 2,800 miles on a single fill-up while using the additional solar support. In addition, the new model can be enjoyed on waterways, as it has a low bridge clearance of 6.5 meters.

ALVA Yachts is bringing yachting into a new era with electrified solar catamarans and sailing yachts that combine self-sufficient, long-range cruising capabilities and class-leading design, delivering the best boats for forward-thinking explorers.
