De Voogt designed the yacht with naval architecture by Azure and SETE Yacht (now PrivatSea) managed the project’s various subcontractors. It was a commercial shipyard (specializing mostly in the construction of ferries) that built the vessel in only 26 months, which probably helped Tueq escape scrutiny when she was launched.
Oceanco, Nuvolari-Lenard, Azure Naval Architects and the Wright Maritime Group collaborated on this beautiful vessel, spotted in Fort Lauderdale and the Bahamas following a busy season in the Caribbean. She is likely to appear in the Med this summer, as her American owners designed her as much for their personal enjoyment as to entertain large parties.
In April 2012, the Oceanco crew bid farewell to the latest yacht to come of its yard in Ablasserdam. Nirvana, the newest born in a line of fine superyachts, has a few stylistic features in common with an earlier Oceanco yacht. And that probably has a lot to do with the fact that the yachts share the same design team: Australian Sam Sorgiovanni and naval architecture firm Azure.
