Impressive and already iconic superyacht SEA EAGLE II built by Dutch shipyard Royal Huisman has been performed her sea trials with the expected success.
SEA EAGLE II will be ranked among the top 10 of the world’s largest sailing yachts. Upon delivery to her Owner this spring, SEA EAGLE II will be the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht.
Together with Dykstra Naval Architects and designer Mark Whiteley, Royal Huisman made this grand aspiration into a striking reality, keeping their promise of “If you can dream it, we can build it”.
Through our partner Carbolink , supplier of the standing rigging "CL SOLID" , Ocean Data System was able to implement its solution TenSeaZy/FO for the tensile measurement of the 24 shrouds of the 3 masts with 4 spreaders. The loads in the carbon cables, measured by optical fibres transducers, are wirelessly transmitted to the monitoring system.
We are proud, thanks to the qualities of our solutions and our expertise, to collaborate on such challenges and to be able to respond to this kind of demanding projects.

NDS Evolution : JFA LI85'#2
This gorgeous catamaran is the second one to be launched in Long Island 85' serie.
Built in JFA Yachts yards and designed by Marc Lombard, she is now ready to leave to sail between Artic and Antartic oceans.
Ocean Data System brings its skills and solutions to that wonderful project. The rigging is entirely equipped with load sensors. The monitoring allows the crew to have a permanent look on the strengths in the rig. Thanks to alarms and automatic release of the sails, the yacht is secured. And our NDR solution saves all sailing data and activity historics.
MAXI SOLO BANQUE POPULAIRE IX
The Maxi Solo Banque Populaire IX is a trimaran belonging to the Ultim 32/23 category. The architect VPLP and the Banque Populaire Team have used their shared knowledge of the maxi multihulls to design a flying boat, powered by its foils and coming from future times. Ocean Data System has again modestly contributed to that true concentrate of technology.
The UpSideUp solution is of course an significant tool to secure both man and equipment. It also brings great satisfaction to manage the trimaran 's performance.
Monitoring, flooding detection, man over board management, anti capsize and strength control are the well estalished specifications of UpSideUp set up for the Ultim trimarans.
CIELA VILLAGE - Trimaran Multi 50'
This is the first one of that new generation of multi50 trimarans to be equiped of monotype foils system. She keeps all her promises in terms of performance, sea keeping qualities and versatility.
But those type of boats remain very capricious and unstable. That is why it is essential to bring more and more security on board. Thierry bouchard trusts in our UpSideUp solution to deal with anti-capsize and heeling limiter thanks to automatic pilote.
And it is also a great benefit for performance and serenity of the skipper during solo sailing.
WILDLING - Outremer 5X, 2016
During his stop over in France, Doug Hibberd has chosen Ocean Data System to equipped his Outremer 5X WILDLING with a complete UpSideUp solution : UpSideUp Master central unit, 1 TEPSS T20RLC for remote release and measurement of the strain on the main sheet rope + 4 BCam for foresails remote release, and also the MOB function using automatic release of the Jonbuoy. Additional options such as management of shallows and wind gusts have also been installed.
That is the most recommanded configuration especially for sailing with family on board.
Do not hesitate to have a look on the remarkable blog of Doug Hibberd.
SEAIR, company with both an engineering department and a design office dedicated to the foils, contacted Ocean Data System to better understand the "flying" boats, by using our knowlegde to collect and store data, depending on the foils used on the projects Moth with Foil and Mini 747.
