Oceanfast Big Sky Overview
BIG SKY (formerly known as AUSTRALIS) is a 157.5’ yacht built and designed by the Australian luxury shipyard Oceanfast in 2010. She was refit in 2018. This super yacht boasts exceptional engineering, massive interior spaces, and a striking profile – though what else can one expect from Oceanfast’s award-winning design team?
BIG SKY is notable for a number of reasons – not least stunning, open plan main salon, featuring extra large windows and furnishings that could easily double as works-of-art. The lounge area has a huge sofa, two chairs, and coffee tables – just one of the many spots on the yacht to relax, enjoy a drink, or simply ponder the next day’s . The formal dining area, which is separated from the lounge by a bar, has a table and seating for 10.
BIG SKY is certainly not lacking in exterior deck space for soaking in the sun, entertaining or enjoying a quiet conversation in the shade. The teak-covered aft deck, just off the main salon, is an optimal place for an al fresco dinner or late afternoon cocktails – or really anything else you’d like to do. That said, it faces steep competition from the sun deck entertainment area, which is perfectly set up with a full bar, jacuzzi, and tons of seating.
This superyacht’s oversized swim platform makes a jump into the sea an almost irresistible notion. Stocked with a large collection of water toys & sports, this area alone could fill an entire day’s worth of activities. BIG SKY’s water toys include two tenders, jet skis, snorkel gear, wakeboards, water skis, seabobs, a paddleboard, windsurfer, fishing gear, and a full range of inflatables. And yes, that does include some seriously big toys – like a custom slide running the bridge deck as well as a trampoline. Notably, BIG SKY is an approved RYA water sports centre. And if the non-stop delicious food on board has you concerned that you’ll be taking a step back in your fitness regimen – fear not. This vessel has a full gym with treadmill, ab roller, exercise ball, yoga mats, and, of course, weights. And the fun doesn’t stop during shore excursions – BIG SKY carries a beach barbecue, gazebo, plenty of games, and beach furniture.
