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. Oceanco specialises in building large custom yachts from 80-140 meters in length. Offering a highly personalized service to clients, Oceanco applies innovative design and technology to create one-of-a-kind bespoke yachts that respect the vision of both the owner and the designer. In addition to utilizing its own in-house design team, Oceanco works closely with the world's leading designers. Furthermore, Oceanco's craftsmen are among the finest, as each and every one of them feels a personal responsibility for the quality of the finished yacht. All Oceanco yachts feature complex state-of-art systems that stretch the boundaries of yacht technology. Oceanco sets store by challenges, actively seeking out innovative and unusual award-winning projects where interior craftsmanship is fused with complex exterior engineering. Oceanco is ideally positioned with yacht-building facilities in the Netherlands, which is equipped with a private harbor and a climate-controlled state-of-the-art dry dock for the building and refitting of yachts up to 140 metres. The design, sales and marketing office is located in Monaco. Oceanco has a solid reputation as the ones who thrive on things which have never been done before. The results include: 269ft (82m) Alfa Nero, the industry’s first 300ft (91.5m) PYC yacht Equanimity and the 279ft (86m) high performance ketch Aquijo. In 2017 Oceanco delivered not only 290ft (88.5m) Barbara, but also 361ft (110m) Jubilee, the largest yacht ever built at Oceanco and in the Netherlands. Scheduled for delivery is 350ft (106.7m) Black Pearl, the largest Dyna Rig sailing yacht in the world. She has a striking design that is commensurate to her innovative 230ft (70m) high mast system. To date 12 Oceanco's yachts built since 2007 appear in the 'The World's Top 100 Yachts' list.
Another expedition style superyacht design is revealed and this time it is from Dutch custom superyacht builder Oceanco. The Dutch yacht manufacturer calls the new 105-meter design 'Esquel'. The builder used the opening day of the 2019 edition of the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS) to unveil the new design to the world. Design wise, the lines were penned by Timur Bozca and Gina Brennan and the very sleek design package is targeting owners who have a passion for remote exploration.
Fresh off the heels of their latest launch, the 90-meter Luiz de Basto designed Project ‘Shark’, Dutch yard OceAnco announces another concept. With the start of the Dubai Yacht Show, OceAnco announces the existence of the 115-meter 'Tuhura' concept with a design by Igor Lobanov. Immediately, the design is reminiscent of old canoes from ancient times. In fact, the official detailing of the design by the designer states the idea was from ancient peoples that used canoes and dugouts to travel long ocean distances. People like the Polynesians came to mind and infact, the word Tuhura is from the Maiori verb that pushes one to explore, investigate and unravel.
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!
Last week Dutch yard Oceanco launched their latest superyacht. Not only is Y719 their largest build to date, it is also the largest build in the Netherlands so far. At 117-meters long, the yacht showcases exterior design lines by Espen Oeino. The interior on the other hand is the work of Sinot Yacht Design. Y719 on the exterior does have similar appearance to that of another Oceanco build, the 2019 built "DreAMBoat". Y719 was also known at Project Acquaintance while under construction.
The 90-meter Oceanco superyacht "DreAMBoat" (formerly known as Project 'Yasmin') has been delivered to her owner. The design is by Espen Øino with an interior by Terence Disdale of Terence Disdale Design. One of the challenges with this yacht was to develop a superyacht that was the dreamboat of the owner but still keep it as a unassumingly sophisticated build. Disdale said, "we always strive to avoid the 'big wow' factor that soon becomes boring. We believe that DreAMBoat with her quietly sophisticated interior is indeed a future classic." Below is a night still from a video by Dutch Yachting.
Dutch superyacht builder OceAnco launched their latest superyacht early this morning in Holland. The new yacht is the 109-meter known under Project name 'BRAVO'. It also goes by the hull number Y718 for reference. It is another large superyacht and is the third largest launched in The Netherlands so far behind Feadship's "Anna" and OceAnco's "Jubliee". Nuvolari & Lenard are responsible for the exterior design while Reymond Langton is on the interior with Naval Architecture by Lateral Naval Architecture. The following launch photos are by Dutch Yachting.
The 90-meter superyacht that was launched at Project 'Shark' is now being referred to as Y717 according to OceAnco, as they announced on her delivery. The yacht features powerful yet graceful lines by Luiz de Basto Studio of Miami and an interior that is as stunning by Italian firm Nuvolari & Lenard. This yacht has many cool features but one of them has to be for the owner. It is common that on larger yachts an entire deck may be devoted to the owner. It is the same concept on this yacht but one key difference is the amount of glass utilized as well as the near full isolation of the deck. There are no walkaround outside areas and the forward end is a secluded terrace/patio with jacuzzi and ample deck space.
The world's largest dyna-rigged sailing yacht, "Black Pearl" has finally been delivered. Since leaving the Netherlands last week, she has arrived in Gibraltar making her first Mediterranean stop. This yacht has been around for a long time since - being launched without being delivered - leaving many to speculate about the circumstances. However, she is delivered and has swapped the Dutch flag for the Cayman Islands.
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.”
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!
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.
