Intro to Oceanfast PERSEVERANCE II | :00
Welcome aboard Oceanfast’s PERSEVERANCE II, 123 feet of floating luxury originally built in 1996 and recently refitted in 2012. She boasts the influence of naval architect Phil Curran, exterior designs by the talented Jon Bannenberg and interiors by Sam Sorgiovanni. Her composite fiberglass, semi-displacement hull provides easy maintenance and great insulation from heat and noise. PERSEVERANCE II has been described as giving off a feel of a much larger yacht, yet easily handled by a smaller crew and displaying cruising attributes offered by larger yachts in her class. A tri-deck, enclosed pilothouse, PERSEVERANCE II has a beam of 26 feet and six feet of draft. She offers many options for gathering outdoors, from the main deck aft and wrap-around lounge to a multi-level bar under a louvered, protected cover. A sky lounge allows for beautiful views of the sea or port, and a foredeck outfitted with large sun pads under elegant parasol shading will be a popular relaxation station.
Main Deck Aft | :48
Starting on the main deck aft, ample outdoor seating accommodates a multitude of uses—lounging, socializing and dining. The whole width of the vessel aft features comfortable seating steps away from a dining table that seats eight and a flat screen television. The area features a soft enclosure to protect the aft deck should inclement weather arise. From here there is access down to the swim platform by both port and starboard staircases and passarelle access to starboard.
Main Saloon Dining | 1:04
Entering the main salon from the main deck aft, more dining reveals itself in a more formal way with seating for eight in plush, oversized chairs. Doors to the main deck flank the dining area that is serviced from a small buffet island and china storage that separates this area from the main saloon. Two adjoining desk areas sit ready for some work or better yet, excursion planning! Starboard as one moves into the main saloon, a spiral staircase leads to an enclosed sky lounge on the bridge aft of the pilothouse or down to the sleeping cabins. Overall the interiors reflect a modern, light feel with Madrona burl woods, sumptuous leathers and luxurious fabrics. Openness is created in part from the large vertical floor to ceiling windows that enhance the spectacular visual appeal.

The main saloon is outfitted with a U-shaped seating area and a flat screen television. Forward of the main saloon is a galley that inspires fine culinary creations at sea.

Forward of the galley, a full-width, main deck master features his and hers ensuite baths (shower to starboard) divided by a Jacuzzi tub and a built in treadmill in the floor of the suite.
Sky Lounge, Pilothouse, Outdoor Living | 2:00
Ascending the main saloon stairs, a comfortable enclosed sky lounge with entertainment center awaits with a full day head complete with shower–which can service convertible bedding for children and/or nanny. A glass bulkhead looks out to an aft dining area. Forward, a fairly traditional enclosed pilothouse allows for serious navigating from double helm seats and companionship thanks to a curved bank of seats aft bulkhead (seats five) and two wing seats flanking the space. Forward of the pilothouse, a foredeck beckons fun and relaxation with huge sun pads under parasol shading, barbecue and a six-person Jacuzzi. Aft on the sky lounge deck is an additional lounge area outfitted with a large circular hi-lo dining table for eight covered by adjustable louvered panels.

Belowdecks – Guest Staterooms, Crew Quarters, Engine Room, Lazarette | 3:53
Three guest staterooms are situated on the lower deck—a twin berth cabin and two queens—all with ensuite baths. Forward, three crew quarters sleep six. Aft, a sparkly, well maintained engine room features twin MTU 8V396 TE94s that allow cruising speeds of 13 knots and maximum speeds at 16 knots. Aft of the engine room, a lazarette reveals stowage of a 17’6” Novurania 530 RIB tender and other water toys like two, three-man Kawasaki jet skis, waterskis, a wakeboard, fishing equipment and inflatables. A swim platform is covered in teak. Owners and guests will delight in the al fresco choices for relaxation or gathering—including those inviting sun pads (and barbecue) on the sky lounge deck forward and shaded seating aft. Mobility is made easy throughout PERSEVERANCE II thanks to various stairwells intuitively placed and nice passageways port and starboard along the hull.
