Ocean Cruiser
 

Ocean Cruiser
The design concept of a sea-resort city is used. The exterior color of Aquatic white and Deep Sea Blue represents the aquatic stratum, and the orange accent wave graphic at the side of the vehicle expresses the reflection of the sunlight. Passengers inside can obtain a resort-like beautiful scenery through the octagon-wide window at the front. The shape of the partition design and the stanchion pole are inspired by the sail. The motional circular design of the handrail to the stand pole inspires the movement of the water ripple.
