Dutch shipbuilder Oceanco launches 88.5m superyacht, ranks among world’s largest yachts

The latest superyacht to make the World’s Top 100 list was launched on January 29th by Oceanco in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Australian-based Sam Sorgiovanni Designs is credited with exterior styling and interior design of the yard-coded Y707. Boasting a length of 88.5m and a beam of 14.2m, Y707 is a yacht of harmonious proportions and extraordinary volumes. Much effort went into accommodating all of the owner’s requirements without any sacrifice to a stunningly sleek and elegant profile.

The yacht has been designed and constructed with great attention to detail. The contemporary interior features eucalyptus wood, teak and white onyx interspersed with natural materials, fabrics and colours. The superyacht’s versatile and extensive layout includes a large tender garage equipped with limousine tenders and the latest watersports equipment, an outdoor oval pool with height adjustable floor, jacuzzi and sunbathing area as well as a dedicated indoor 3D cinema.

Oceanco is one of the world’s most renowned builders of highly sophisticated larger custom superyachts with Y707 being no exception in representing both a culmination of innovation and attentiveness to her owner’s wishes. Final fit-out and sea trials are on track in anticipation of delivery in April 2012.

With a yacht building facility in the Netherlands and a design and sales office in Monaco, Oceanco’s technically accomplished and distinctive yachts are built to standards that no other shipyard exceeds. Unsurpassed Dutch engineering, specifications, craftsmen, quality controls; for Oceanco these are not aims, they are achievements.
