Life Cycle Support HIGHLIGHTS
Beyond new build projects, we are equally committed to working with operational yachts to ensure they stay at the top of their game. Whether your yacht was originally created by Oceanco or another builder, we will consider her – and you – a part of the family.
In 2019, Oceanco expanded its construction facilities, acquiring a 28-acre facility in Zwijndrecht to consolidate its steel construction capabilities and expand its refit and maintenance services. Included in the new facility is a hall that is 132-meters long with a clearance of 38 meters. Life Cycle Support offers a full spectrum of care and maintenance throughout the life of all Oceanco yachts as well as on all of its refit work, bringing existing yachts in line with modern standards in terms of technology and physical design. Our ambition is to respect, preserve and renew existing superyachts, giving them a new lease of life that is aligned not only with how we live today but how we will be living tomorrow.
Limitless Redelivered 96M/316FT
In September 2021, twenty five years after she was delivered to her owners, Limitless came to Oceanco for an extensive refit under the careful supervision of the Oceanco Life Cycle Support (LCS) team.
Her refit consisted of various sustainable upgrades and service jobs. Complex activities included replacing the stabilizers for zero speed stabilizers, converting the former stabilisation tank into a large storage, office, and workshop, adding an exhaust gas treatment on two generators as well as adding a shore power converter, a 25-year survey, and the withdrawal and service of her tail shafts and propellers.
“It is rewarding to welcome a new family member to Oceanco for these complex upgrades and maintenance work. We are happy to send Limitless back into the water, ready for many years of cruising in top condition,” says Refit Manager Frank van Loo.
Lucky Lady Completes Upgrades 62.6M/205FT
In October 2021, 62.6m (205ft) Lucky Lady arrived at the Oceanco facilities in Alblasserdam to undergo significant upgrades to her technical equipment, lighting and paintwork, under the direction of the Oceanco Life Cycle Support (LCS) team.
Alongside her 20-year Lloyd’s class survey, the refit work undertaken included complete overhauls of her main engine, steering unit and gearbox, while a new power management system and exhaust filters were installed on the gensets. Her propeller shafts were replaced, and a new chiller plant was installed onboard. To make Lucky Lady more operationally efficient, 820m of LED lights were fitted both to her interior and exterior, while the exterior paintwork was upgraded to give her a fresh, contemporary look.
“It’s always a pleasure to welcome home a timeless classic from the Oceanco fleet, and especially at the important stage in her life cycle that the 20-year survey marks. We are happy to have made many upgrades that bring Lucky Lady right up to date with contemporary yachts while also improving her sustainability credentials through the installation of exhaust filters and LED lighting. We look forward to seeing her back on the water in warmer climes, continuing to give her owners so much enjoyment,” says Project Manager Refit Frederik Marks.
