Is there no end to the size and volume of new superyachts, or when at this size, megayachts seems more appropriate
Dutch builder, Oceanco’s new 109m (357ft) is their first new build to take advantage of the recently acquired construction and refit facilities where her first phase of construction was successfully executed on schedule under stringent and enhanced safety restrictions. The new build has now made its way up the river to Oceanco’s facilities in Alblasserdam , Holland for her outfitting phase.
Designed inside and out by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, this 109m/357ft is distinguished by elegant classical proportions and an astonishing amount of glass. The deckhouses—main deck, bridge deck, and upper deck—are each fully surrounded by large glass windows. Lateral has once again collaborated with Oceanco on engineering a technologically advanced propulsion system.
The newly renovated building boasts ecological enhancements as well as updated state-of the-art technologies. The use of heat pumps, reduces the building’s gas consumption by 50 percent. Additionally, the rooftop is equipped with solar panels that will deliver approximately 250,000 kWh of energy a year. The eco-conscious expansion is one more step in Oceanco’s mission to be one of the world’s most sustainable yacht builders. While their largest drydock can accommodate yachts up to 140m/459ft in length, our newly renovated outfitting facilities has been increased to accommodate yachts up to 120m/393ft in length. Our facilities are divided into access-restricted zones to assure safety and confidentiality for up to 1,000 persons at any given time including Oceanco’s outfitting team, subcontractors, Owner’s representatives and crew. Oceanco is now set to simultaneously accommodate more yachts of greater size.
