Together we create value for our customers and guests by enabling them to enjoy and explore the world in a comfortable, stylish and safe way.


Imagine a yacht where the lack of fuel is not critical for the voyage and life onboard. A yacht minimizing bad emissions to the air and oceans. Enough Solar energy for the critical systems onboard. No emissions. Water emissions cleaned by a sewage treatment system before discharging overboard – Clean oceans.


Values in our way of working:

  • We place the customer at the heart of everything we do
  • We conduct our business with passion, professionalism and ethics

Values created in your yacht:

  • Ocean performance with comfort and style
  • Quality second to none
  • Systems reliable, safe and easy handling


Founded in the Jakobstad-Pietarsaari region, in Finland, Ocean Explorer comes from a long history of luxury international boat builders coming together to form OQS – Ocean Quality Systems. The same craftsmen who built the high-performance, luxury yachts of the same region, use their skills and close attention to detail to create the Ocean Explorer catamaran.

All personnel have been working closely with the other two large yacht manufacturers in the area, Baltic Yachts Finland and Nautors Swan. This area of Finland is known for producing the best bluewater cruiser racers in the world.

Internationally acclaimed Naval Architect, German Frers, known for his beautiful and efficient designs, along with the knowledgeable Ocean Explorer team, design and build every yacht with you at the very heart of it.
