The new OE72 designed by German Frers offers innovative elements reflected in the accommodation and deck arrangement. Whether you plan to cruise stylishly around the world or race comfortably at 25+ knots offshore the OE72 will be the perfect platform to reach your defined objectives. The accommodation volume offers ample space for comfort while the hull design measurements are focused on delivering high performance and stability. The fully customizable layout is designed to operate with only two crew to reduce operational expenses and weight from extra crew cabins, and to increase interior volume and simplicity for the owner.

The OE72 offers many customizable options to transform this elegant platform into anything from a luxuriously spacious yacht with all the toys, to a highly efficient green circumnavigation machine to get off the grid entirely, or even into the ultimate microlight offshore racing multihull with the latest foiling package. Or perhaps an elegant combination of all of these elements! The four cabin arrangement provides a generous amount of personal space and comfort. A three and five cabin arrangement remains a part of the custom layouts available.
