Ocean 1 delivers first yacht tender

ADVERTISEMENT

The new line Ocean 1 delivered its first 36-foot GRP tender to its owner in May. Its second tender will make its debut in June at the America’s Cup in Bermuda.

Ocean 1 was founded by Dean Maggio following a foray into building the Yellowfin Custom Yacht Tender on the west coast of Florida with partner Wylie Nagler. As Nagler’s core business is his line of Yellowfin fishing boats, Maggio decided to strike out on his own to concentrate on creating the perfect tender. In August, he opened the Ocean 1 production facility in Sarasota.

Ocean 1 tenders combine the qualities of an open water sport tournament fishing boat with the amenities and comfort necessary for the luxury yacht market, according to the company.

“The ‘perfect’ tender should encompass speed, performance, stability, fuel efficiency, comfort and seaworthiness,” said Maggio, who has 27 years experience in the luxury yacht field. He was the build captain of the 170-foot Royal Huisman S/Y Meteor and has remained at that yacht’s helm since 2007.
