A new order of effects and competitiveness for seaplanes
Ocean Aircraft Ltd has been formed to commercialise seaplane designs and technology developed by a team of former leading Airbus, racing yacht and Formula 1 designers and managers. This team has been instructed by the world’s most experienced and prolific seaplane operators. It has developed and proven a series of features that offer step-change safety, performance, function and economic advantages to the future of seaplane and amphibious aircraft operations.
The Ocean seaplane portfolio includes the following aircraft;
- Ocean 2 - 2 seat personal, utility and training amphibious aircraft with electric and piston options
- Ocean 6 - 6 to 7 seat business/taxi/utility/family amphibious aircraft with with electric, piston and turboprop options
- Ocean 12 - 10 to 19 seat business/commuter/feeder amphibious aircraft with with single electric and turboprop options
- Ocean 18 - 10 to 21 seat business/commuter/feeder amphibious aircraft using the same airframe as the Ocean 12 with twin electric and turboprop options
Unique hybrid hull forms derived from racing yacht hulls (that have doubled their speeds since 1980), offer low-drag advantages on take-off and in cruise. Also reducing structural weight, they give the Ocean seaplanes greater load capacity and cruise efficiency. These typically double range-with-payload in relation to conventional seaplanes.
The same hulls also offer new orders of wave-handling capability needed to serve diverse open-water destinations.
Combined with a configuration able to taxi with wings folded for access to common docks and marinas, the Ocean seaplanes will make diverse new destinations usable.
Able to serve as landplanes and provide direct transport between inland airfields and the maritime sector, the Ocean seaplanes generate major new aircraft manufacturing and operating opportunities.
