Oceanco is continually exploring new yacht DESIGNS, both with global world-renowned designers as well as with its own in-house design team. These ‘concepts’ designs represent much more than the proverbial back of the napkin sketch – all are viable and technologically feasible…

Esquel 1

Oceanco’s newest project, the105-meter (345ft) diesel-electric driven Esquel has been conceived and designed to explore new territories. Oceanco has created Esquel in collaboration with Timur Bozca Design, stylist Gina Brennan, Lateral Naval Architects and Engineering, and Pelorus—a leading experiential and yacht expedition travel company.

Sporting a displacement hull with a plumb bow, Esquel has been designed for extensive cruising to remote regions extending from the North Pole to the South Pole and everywhere in between.

She offers all the aesthetics, amenities, interior and exterior finishes and attention to engineering detail seen onboard all Oceancos.

A perfect blend between an expedition vessel and a sophisticated superyacht, Esquel offers the best of both worlds. She has a 230 square-meter tender garage for fast ribs, varietal tenders, watersports toys and diving gear. Her expansive uncluttered main deck, measuring 200 square meters has an aft deck glass superstructure with an enclosed pool and wellness area with panoramic views. This deck also offers plenty of space for accommodating locked containers of any sort, as well as additional tenders and off - road vehicles. For those interested in marine biology and ocean conservation, Esquel can become a platform for any number of scientific studies such as coral aquaculture —creating reef farms aboard to help restore our world’s dying reefs.

Esquel has a very flexible layout and can be adapted to house additional multi-purpose cabins, first response units, seminar areas, and research offices. As Esquel is not your ordinary rough explorer yacht—she is also imminently qualified to host a celebrity party at the Cannes Film Festival to—perhaps— raise awareness for Ocean Conservation…or to simply celebrate life.  

Timur Bozca Design was selected to design Esquel. Bozca, who has design studios in London and Antalya, has won several design accolades in the last few years including Young Designer of the Year Award— an established international competition that Oceanco sponsors annually.

Our vision is to create solutions by considering human factors, technology and aesthetics, We design everything for a reason—not just for the sake of designing. We believe that we must not only create for tomorrow, but also for the day after.

Esquel is equipped with a state-of –the-art sustainable compact diesel- electric architecture to allow uncompromised and autonomous operation throughout the world. With her strengthened hull and Polar classification, she has a cruising range of 7,000 nautical miles and can reach a top speed of 16.5 knots.

In order to truly realize her expedition potential, Esquels’s naval architecture has been executed to provide maximum redundancy for the lowest possible maintenance.”

While the exterior of the expedition yacht is very masculine and modern, the interior is stylish and warm with comfortable furniture to create the feeling of a home away from home.

The ambition for the look and feel of Esquel’s interior is geared towards depicting the life, influences and home of a young explorer. Visible will be an eclectic mix of antiques and artifacts collected on his/her travels.

Working with the team at Pelorus to fully understand the true nature of adventures in remote places such as Greenland and Patagonia, Esquel has been designed and engineered to carry and deploy two submarines, a land vehicle, and motorbikes, as well as accommodate a helicopter.  She can also be equipped with laboratories for scientific experiments and exploration.

Able to take to the high seas in any hemisphere, Esquel truly represents another one- of- a -kind vessel that carries Oceanco’s distinctive innovative DNA.

Tuhura  1

Tuhura, Oceanco’s latest project, conceived in collaboration with the Lobanov Design studio, BMT Nigel Gee and interior designer Achille Salvagni, is truly in a category of its own, unlike any yacht on the market. Its design harkens back to ancient times. The exterior styling is reminiscent of early canoes; dugouts and other vessels used hundreds of years ago by indigenous people all over the world. The Polynesians, in particular, famously made long voyage explorations across thousands of miles of open Pacific Ocean in their outrigger canoes. The thinking behind revisiting basic primal forms is to evoke a sense of exploration and discovery. In fact, the actual name, ‘Tuhura’ is derived from the Maori verb meaning: to discover, bring to light, unearth, open up, explore, and investigate.

The main inspiration for the interior design is East Asia and the Pacific islands. Achille Salvagni refers to the interior as a “brushed teak habitat” (floors, walls, ceilings) including thin reveals in gunmetal and natural bronze with tatami floors. “Tuhura is a megayacht conceived for a dynamic owner, nevertheless the timeless sense of peace and calmness are the main characteristics,” “This softness and dynamicity are reflected in the humble elegance and sensuality of the primitive organic shapes echoed throughout.”

Innovation and cutting-edge technology is evident throughout the design. The hull has been conceived with multiple horizontal windows, utilising an advanced glass technology that consists of a series of dots, allowing the view from within to be completely transparent, while from the exterior, the windows appear the same colour as the hull, disguising their appearance. Glass features further in the impressive black superstructure made up of flat glass panels.

Amara 1

Amara, Oceanco’s newly designed and engineered 120-meter private yacht concept, was designed in collaboration with Sam Sorgiovanni Designs. 

Oceanco revealed the lifestyle philosophy of creating a yacht designed for extended families and friends. Amara provides unparalleled living and entertainment facilities for up to 20 guests. The contemporary interior with natural timber, stone and textural carpets and fabrics blend to create an inviting and natural environment. “In designing the exterior lines of Amara, the idea was to portray a very strong and muscular form that was progressive in design but with a timeless appeal. 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.

The lower level deck opens up to reveal an expansive beach club resort that offers 3-way access to the sea; port starboard and aft. Also on this deck is a comprehensive wellness area with banya, hammam, beauty treatment lounge and a cinema experience for 16 persons.

A waterfall from the upper deck cascades down into the main deck swimming pool. And the main deck is party central, featuring a stunning pool bar, opening balconies and large entertainment areas. The upper deck has an outstanding owner’s apartment with a private plunge pool and openair aft deck dining for 20+ people.

The gym with a capital view is located on the bridge deck. For intimate gatherings there are two Majilis-style areas aboard. In addition to the cinema on the lower deck, there is a quixotic cabana style open-air cinema on the sun deck.  For young guests and those young at heart, there are accommodations for fun sports equipment such as a climbing wall and water slides.

Cosmos 1

The idea behind the 90m Project Cosmos is to have a yacht where you can be in touch with and enjoy your surroundings yet still be in a controlled environment.

This concept led to the creation of a glass dome, a luxurious empty space completely covering the upper deck. This provides an interesting tension between being adventurous and being safe. The glass dome, while it looks simple, is extremely complex. The entire yacht will have a huge empty space on the top deck creating a unique open layout with the dynamic dome floating optically above the hull.

 The glass can be dimmed or coloured to support a desired mood.

In addition to sporting the completely innovative glass dome, the forward moving angles of the yacht’s lines give it an additional progressive profile.

Spectrum 1

Aptly named, Spectrum was conceived by Nauta Design and Oceanco to encompass a broad range of possibilities, both in terms of her propulsion system and her living spaces. Extensive investment in hull form research and development provides a refined hull shape which, when coupled with the hybrid propulsion system enables Spectrum to cruise in a variety of efficient modes. She maintains a sleek, streamlined profile, which allows lower resistance through the water. Her layout over five decks provides a gamut of flexibility.
