Since its inception 18 years ago, Oceanco continues to build some of the most technically accomplished and distinctive yachts to the highest industry standards. The company’s yacht building facility is located in the Netherlands and its design and sales office is in Monaco. In early 2010, Oceanco acquired an additional 614,000 sq ft (57,000m²) of new land adjacent to its existing facility in order to expand its operations to include covered dry-docks. Oceanco has a solid name within the superyacht industry as a premium builder of 80-90m superyachts by launching four of the world’s finest luxury yachts: Y701 262.47ft (80m) “AMEVI”, Y702 269.03ft (82m) “ALFA NERO”, both delivered to acclaim in 2007 and both proud award winners, and Y703 247.70ft (75.5m) "ANASTASIA" launched for the 2008 summer season and awarded a few months later. In May 2009, the spectacular Y704 280.14ft (85.47m) “VIBRANT CURIOSITY” with her astonishing amidship atrium, a 23ft (7m) pool and impressive interior volumes designed by Nuvolari & Lenard, was delivered to her owner. Y705 “Sunrays”, Oceanco’s latest sleek and elegant 85.50m (280.52ft) megayacht, was delivered in March 2010. The late Björn Johansson designed her exterior lines and the interior design is by Terence Disdale. She will soon be followed by the striking 86m (282.15ft) Nuvolari & Lenard designed Y706, scheduled for delivery at the end of this year. The Sam Sorgiovanni designed 87m (285.43ft) Y707 is currently under completion at the yard for delivery in 2011 and the Igor Lobanov 85.50m (280.52ft) Y708, also under construction, is scheduled for a delivery in 2012. Engineering is under way for several more large private luxury yachts. Oceanco has always stood out for their seaworthiness and quality of construction of yachts, and for the elegance of their finishing and furnishings, which marries old-fashioned craftsmanship with cutting-edge materials to produce accommodations that are both timeless and absolute of the moment. All the characteristics of an Oceanco yacht are adhered to with each new yacht launched, including quality materials, demanding finishing, exceptional attention to details... and an audacious inventiveness at every turn.
Dutch custom superyacht builder OceAnco unveiled their latest design today at the ongoing Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS). The design is called 'Amara' and is a 120-meter ‘resort-style’ private yacht designed for extended families to enjoy. Speaking of the design, it was penned by Sam Sorgiovani Design and is packed with exciting features all over. “In designing the exterior lines of Amara, I wanted to portray a very strong and muscular form that was progressive in design but with a timeless appeal,” says Sorgiovanni. Its long bow accentuates the vessel’s generous proportions. Most importantly, the interior and exterior design work in harmony to create a holistic feeling of a relaxed well-appointed resort.
Dutch superyacht builder OceAnco has started the year with a bang unveiling a brand new design to the yachting world. It’s a large yacht stretching nearly 300-feet (approximately 90-meters) and encompassing five decks above the waterline. One of the important and fascinating attributes of this yacht has to do with the technology employed onboard, particularly so with lighting! The project is called 'Moonstone' and as you can see in the renderings the hull features a prism-like effect made possible by 300 lit triangles (per hull side)that can be illuminated at varying intensities, colours and hues to paint an almost limitless glowing canvas.
A brand new design hase come on the radar and penned for custom Dutch superyacht builder OceAnco. The 86.7-meter 'Colosseum' superyacht design was drawn by Team For Design designer Enrico Gobbi. The five-level yacht is envisioned to have accommodations for up to fourteen guests in seven expansive and luxurious suites. The breakdown is one full beam master suite, two VIP-grade suites and four double cabins. There is accommodation for an extensive crew count numbering up to 28.
Designed by Ken Freivokh, Stiletto represents the distillation of several creative concepts. It is a deliberate departure from the accepted stereotype layout of multiple salons, heavy accommodations and minimum external space. Instead, Stiletto features a cavernous double height salon with a mezzanine enjoying both external views, as well as copious onboard space. Stiletto has been designed to provide a seamless and all-encompassing experience. The exterior styling, the continuity of line, long sightlines and indoor/outdoor integration create a one-with-your surroundings experience. Following the completion of a number of large superyacht concepts including Ghost, Dream and Fortissimo in collaboration with the Fincantieri yard, Ken Freivokh was approached by Oceanco’s owner, Mr Mohammed Al Barwani, to proceed with the design of a circa 107m superyacht based on a newly developed Oceanco engineering platform. Ken’s brief was to implement a number of concept layouts from recent projects; taking these ideas to a new level.
Special Preview: Oceanco Yachts "Y708" Angular Approach Shapes Stealthy Superyacht According to exterior designer Igor Lobanov, Y708’s design has three main elements: motion, elegance and privacy. To enhance the idea of motion, the designer created angular “layers” that supposedly result in a sculptural movement of the surfaces.
The Netherlands builder adds to its reputation for outstanding design with a sparkling new entry dedicated to family cruising, entertainment elegance and a dedicated plunge into water sports. She’s laden with intriguing beauty: For families who love the sea, and its many, varied offerings, Oceanco has launched the “perfect getaway yacht”. With tasteful discretion, her European owners brought together their team of worldwide talent: from Fremantle, Australia naval architect/designer – Sam Sorgiovanni; with the Netherlands premiere builder – Oceanco; and chose a title recalling that hallowed Duchess - "Anastasia". On the world’s oceans, this lovely, new grand dame presents the total scope of adventure in voyaging; boasting every sea-going hallmark – except, perhaps, the ability to submerge.
Yacht Lovers, are you ready for the “Wow” Factor? The escalating number of yachts, megayachts, and superyachts expands each year, presenting a startling growth in numbers and in effervescent styling, from builders’ far-reaching vision. From a yacht-watcher’s viewpoint, reactions embrace the admiration of new sizes, innovative styles and creative thinking, with exclamations ranging from the “Oooh,” to the “Oh My,” and many more. Then with a jolt, at Monaco’s International Exposition, the world of yachting was introduced to a stunning new unveiling, a billionaire’s delight: Oceanco’s 269' Alfa Nero: the “WOW” Factor! This grandiloquent viewing embraces a yacht which boasts more than 4,000sq.ft. of living space, with suite accommodations for 12, two VIPs, plus 28 crew; three separate dining areas; a centered, leather-stepped staircase and glass-enclosed elevator. Even more; a grand piano, theater lounge, dance floor, gym, beauty salon, a master suite veranda. Plus, exotic Italian marbles, goat skin wall panels, sycamore and brushed stainless steel flooring, makassar and wenge woods, Edelman leather stair treads. Yet, her crowning glory of innovation is the aft deck: In place of the usual lounges and standard cockpit, her sleek, flattened transom flaunts a fresh-or-salt water swimming pool; also, even that especial attribute hydraulically covers a three-tender garage. Then almost a bizarre note; on command, the pool is readily transmogrified to become a helicopter landing pad. “Wow” indeed. A Superyacht superlative!
The largest superyacht built in the Netherlands has been delivered but whether that means handed over to an owner or just left the shipyard is another story. The 110-meter Igor Labonov-designed superyacht arrived in Gibraltar yesterday after completing her maiden voyage from the Netherlands. It is reported in a Dutch publication that this yacht was built for the late former Emir of Qatar which might have forced her to be available for grabs on the market a few months before scheduled delivery. OceAnco says, OceAnco said, “Jubilee represents a number of firsts in yachting, not only for her size, but also the fact that she is a fully turn-key project completely outfitted at delivery including all owner’s supplies; tenders, spares, water sports equipment, china, crystal, silverware, table linen, sheets, loose furniture, cushions, etc. A visual and technological tour de force.”
Dutch custom superyacht builder OceAnco has had a very busy couple of months. Their latest activity involved the reception of the 109-meter superyacht Project 'Bravo' which was technically launched from their shipbuilding yard at Zwijnenburg. The new yacht is build number Y718 at OceAnco and is now inside the new state-of-the-art shed that Project Jubilee (Y714) emerged from earlier this month. Project Bravo will be the second superyacht to be launched from the new shed in 2018 but for now we have a pretty good idea how she will look thanks to photos by Dutch Yachting.
At an impressive 110-meters (361ft) and a slip-busting 16.4-meter (54ft) beam, Oceanco's project Jubilee just became the largest superyacht ever built in The Netherlands! Project Jubilee has an unmistakable sheer line that gives rise to a contrasting superstructure that is certain to become one of the most recognizable splashes in superyacht history. Igor Lobanov was responsible for the exterior design and Sam Sorgiovanni appointed the interior. Jubilee weighs in at just over 4,500 gross tons, making her a heavyweight in her class and further solidifying Oceanco's remarkable rise to become the new Dutch dynasty!
Fresh on the heels of launching the 106-meter hull Y712, Dutch superyacht builder OceAnco launches another brand new yacht. This time, the almost completed 88.5-meter Y715 emerged from the finishing shed today. The design is by Sam Sorgiovanni and in these photos by Dutch Yachting we can immediately notice striking similarities between this new yacht and previous Sorgiovanni designs. Namely "Anastasia" (Y703) and "Nirvana" (Y707).
Dutch superyacht builder OceAnco recently received their latest build, what should be hull Y717. The arrival of the aluminium superstructure from Aluship and the steel hull coincided with the launch of hull Y712 (widely regarded as Project Solar). The superstructure was mated with the hull and the structure wheeled into the indoor building hall for finishing as seen in the below photo by Dimphi van Amen. Perhaps Y717 will re-emerge in early 2018 with delivery towards Summer of that year.
Dutch custom superyacht builder OceAnco has launched their much anticipated project 'Solar' super sailing yacht. This yacht becomes the first sail yacht to be entirely constructed by OceAnco. Of course we saw the launch and delivery of the double-masted sail yacht "Aquijo" which launched from OceAnco but that project was a joint build between Dutch yard Vitters and OceAnco. Project Solar was once known as 'Black Pearl' but it is unclear whether this could be her final name.
Dutch superyacht builder OceAnco has taken the veil off their latest concept. The new design comes in the form of a 90-meter superyacht with the concept name Sunny Memories. BMT is present on the Naval Architecture with Dennis Ingemansson Design on the exterior. The interior design has not been mentioned to-date. The general design looks typical of OceAnco but many design elements used are stylish and unique to this project.
The latest Vitruvius superyacht incarnation will be one built in collaboration with Dutch builder OceAnco. Yes you read right, OceAnco is onboard with Vitruvius on the combination. However, it is anticipated to be built at Turquoise Yacht's facilities. The new yacht design is a 105-meter superyacht called 'Acquaintance' and features design by Philippe Briand and is so-far the largest superyacht in the Vitruvius line. The previous three units in the series were all Perini Navi-Vitruvius collaborations but Acquaintance marks the first time work between them and OceAnco.
