On October 1st, Oceanco launched its 384-foot/ 117-meter motoryacht—the largest yacht to date from Oceanco and the largest yacht ever from any shipyard in the Netherlands. Then on October 20th, Oceanco revealed its 127-meter sailing yacht when the hull rolled out of the shed at Oceanco’s Zwijndrecht shipyard. This yacht now has the distinction of being the largest yacht built by Oceanco and certainly the largest yacht ever built in the Netherlands.
Both yachts have been highly secretive projects. The 117m motoryacht features exterior design by Espen Øino International and interior design by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design.
The 127m sailing yacht, believed to be owned by an American tech entrepreneur, is the third sailing yacht ever built at Oceanco. The first was the 86-meter ketch Aquijo, designed by Tripp Design Naval Architects— the largest ketch in the world and launched in 2016. And the second was the 106.7-meter Dynarig Black Pearl that was a collaboration with Dykstra Naval Architects, Nuvolari Lenard, Ken Freivokh and Villate Design, and launched in 2018.
The new 127-meter is known to be a three masted schooner with a bowsprit, and she is not a Dynarig. When delivered this yacht will be the largest true sailing yacht in the world. Nobiskrug’s S/Y A, while larger than this Oceanco, is considered a sail-assisted motoryacht. The 127-meter will soon be transported to Oceanco’s facility for final outfitting.
