OCEANCO’S PROJECT LUMEN SHINES WITH REVOLUTIONARY SUN KING® COATING MADE FROM DIAMONDS

Nov 03 2017

Oceanco is utilizing the remarkable new product, Sun King® Diamond Coating for Project Lumen. This unique paint coating is created using ethically sourced natural diamonds. The result is a beautiful shimmering luminescent effect.


The proprietary Sun King® coating uses a patent pending process developed by Jean Boulle Luxury, a group that has a long heritage in all facets of the diamond industry. Boulle is working exclusively with partners AkzoNobel to tailor the diamond coating for automobiles, airplanes and yachts.

Commenting on the new partnership, Bertrand Boulle, CEO of Jean Boulle Luxury says: “AkzoNobel sets the standards for coatings in the yachting industry making them the perfect partner for Jean Boulle Luxury’s high quality diamond coatings. Sun King Diamond Coating has a number of potential superyacht applications and its qualities are unmatched by any other product on the market”.

“Following the success of Sun King Diamond Coating in the aviation and automotive sectors, we are pleased to be extending the partnership to the Yacht market, says Antonella Donzelli, Global Yacht Director of AkzoNobel Specialty Coatings. This innovative product is now available to superyacht owners as a result of technical insight, innovation and collaborative spirit”.

Oceanco’s Project Lumen is a 92-meter (302ft) concept project developed with American designer, Adriel Rollins. It is a Passenger Yacht Code vessel with accommodations for up to 36 guests. As the name suggests, the defining feature of the yacht is ‘light.’ The Sun King Diamond coating is the perfect enhancement to Rollins’ design, which is replete with metal and glasswork.

The Lumen scale model painted in Diamond coating is currently on display at the Oceanco stand at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
