Oceanco's Newest Launch
After Oceanco Yachts delivered the 282' (86m) Seven Seas to her owners one month ahead of schedule, the yacht wasted no time in lifting anchor. The stunning vessel with stylish black mast, fluid white superstructure and navy hull attracted attention in St. Maarten and St. Barth’s before making a noted stopover in Fort Lauderdale, which remains a busy hub for yacht provisioning and service.
Designers Nuvolari-Lenard, Azure Naval Architects and the Wright Maritime Group all were involved in the project, previously known as Y-706. Although Seven Seas follows in the footsteps of Oceanco’s celebrated Alfa Nero, Vibrant Curiosity and Sunrays, it breaks new ground in terms of technological achievement and design.
Guest accommodations include a sumptuous master suite comprising study, lounge and private deck area with whirlpool, plus two VIP suites and four additional luxurious staterooms. Molly Isaksen Interiors, a firm responsible for the owners’ private homes, did the casually elegant and soothing interior décor which features teak paneling.
The main salon boasts a bona fide theater with a 108-sq.-foot screen, a rear projection system and two rows of raked seating. For the true movie aficionado, there is also the option to watch the latest films while perched on a Jet Ski as the glass wall of the infinity pool doubles as a projection screen.
Most entertaining centers on the expansive outside areas. Adjacent to the main salon is nearly 2,700 square feet of deck space to accommodate either a casual alfresco meal or a black-tie gala.
Dual 4,680-hp/3,492 kW MTU engines power the yacht, which is able to reach speeds of up to 20 knots.
