The O'Ryan-class Yacht is a Yacht-design answering the request for prototype development by the President of Paleocacher. As his personal dream yacht, it not only fullfills the needs for relaxation and refreshment, but can also be used as a state vessel.
The O'Ryan-class Yacht is a normal monohull-design, 85.3 metres long, 17.14 metres wide and 3.85 metres deep in the water at a weight of 3,321 metric tons. She can load 120,000 litres of water and 250,000 litres of diesel fuel.
Powered by two Diesel Electric power generators, the O'Ryan class Yacht utilized the energy created by them for all needs of electricity, from the engines to the light, completely avoiding the need for space-absorbing specialized ship engines. This design, also known as Integrated Electric Propulsion, is easier to maintain and operate then other kinds of engine designs. Both generators rest on shock-absorbers, which make them more silent, both for the end of environmental impact and for enhancing the pleasureable experience aboard by completely avoiding engine noise and vibrations.
For exhaust gases, the O'Ryan-class Yacht has two small funnels, sloped outward to avoid interfering with helicopter operations, seeing that the helipad and hangar are on the B-Deck behind the bridge, directly beneath the sound-proof owner's suite.
The O'Ryan-class Yacht will be delivered 'raw', meaning, that the largest part of the interior design, meaning carpets, furniture and so on, will not be equipped. However, the technical section will be fully equipped and functional.
The O'Ryan-class Yacht has five decks, one entirely below the waterline, one on the waterline and three above. All decks are connected by elevators, staircases and, in the case of the decks C, D and E, with ramps fitted for pallet trucks.
A-Deck: Most of the A-Deck is taken up by the owner's suite, including its own bathroom with hot tub and a large one-way panorama window (allowing you to look out but no one can look inside) and a saferoom, the Grand Dining Room and the Conference Room.
B-Deck: The B-Deck is both occupied by the bridge, most electronic systems, which can not be stuffed on the D or E Deck (like radar, MASS and both CIWS turrets at port and starbord), as well as the helicopter hangar and the helipad. The B-Deck has a small exit onto the outer side, which can access the radar and telecommunications mast, either for maintenance or, after a bit of climbing, the small crow's nest atop of the mast. A saferoom, which can be used as a storeroom for important possessions or as an armory, is on this deck as well.
C-Deck: The C-Deck is where most of the passengers will live, the staterooms (four designed for double beds, six designed for single beds, eight designed for double occupation) are here, after all. Also on the C-Deck are the small onboard cinema with twelve seats, the onboard disco (doubling as a smaller dining room and bar, if wished) and the sun deck, a small open deck astern, from which the passengers of the yacht can go into the water and out again, sunbake and even use as an outdoor dining area.
D-Deck (waterline): The D-Deck has the accomondations for the crew and the storerooms for all the things, which might be needed in daily and not-so-daily yacht operations. The Docking Room for the onboard yacht tenders and the small bays for the onboard submarines are on the D-Deck as well. A small armory with weapons to repel boarders is an integral part of the onboard security concept.
E-Deck: The E-Deck contains the innermost workings of the O'Ryan-class Yacht, engines and fuel bunkers and other installations, which are needed to keep the ship running and as pleasureable as it is.
The O'Ryan-class Yacht comes with an extensive suite of telecommunication equipment, in the form of two satellite uplinks to provide access to television and radio as well as internet. These are connected to the Onboard Entertainment Network, OEN for short.
The OEN and the shipboard systems are isolated from each other so that malware infections do not mess with the yacht itself.
A second external communication system is provided as well. It is, like the shipboard systems, not connected to the OEN. Sockets to connect to this system are in the owner's suite and the conference room, a wireless connection can be installed, but we do not recommend it.
All of these systems have backups and come equipped with the best anti-malware software the Free Lands have to offer.
For defensive purposes, the O'Ryan-class Yacht comes equipped with a torpedo decoy launcher, a Multi-Ammunition Softkill System and two Ceantar C-84 Mark I 30mm CIWS with an effective firing range of 4.5 kilometers, a tried and tested system. Alternatively, the O'Ryan-class Yacht can be delivered without these CIWS for the purpose of arming it by the customer.
However, the CIWS with six barrels, can fire over four thousand rounds per minute, store two thousand rounds directly 'on hand' and ready to be fired, if need should arise at surface targets as well, as this CIWS can be manually controlled as well and has an elevation down to -10 degrees.
The MASS is connected to the radar and uses the data collected by it to launch radar decoys operating on all relevant wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum, confusing advanced sensor-guided missiles. The torpedo decoys are simple things build to confuse acoustic-homing torpedoes with a lot of noise.
Yawls, tenders and other craft
The O'Ryan-class Yacht has accommodations to carry six jetskis, two midget-submersibles with a maximum length of 16 metres, two yacht tenders and a helicopter. The flight deck is not rated for usage by vectored thrust VTOLs, but can handle tiltrotor-craft. None of these craft are included in the package.
Although we usually do not mention that, the O'Ryan-class of course also carries an appropriate assortment of lifeboats and more then enough swimming vests. There are also three emergency senders placed along the ship, one in the keel astern, one in the bow, one atop of the radar mast, which will activate once the generators go offline without the proper shutdown sequence and will send an emergency signal for two days.
During the construction of the Cineál-class Yacht, Yard 15 began to think about a smaller vessel, more geared towards a business or governmental application while still remaining in the spirit of the relaxing atmosphere of the larger yacht design. First design studies were quickly put aside as other matters began to take shape.
Around the time, the Navy of Paleocacher searched for a presidential yacht in accordance with certain specifications - SDY was happy to deliver, building up on the design studies of the governmental yacht, gearing it further towards representation and relaxation.
