Oceanco has delivered the 91.5m superyacht Equanimity (hull Y709) from its Alblasserdam yard. She has the honour of being the first superyacht to be designed and constructed in compliance with the Passenger Yacht Code (PYC).

Commenting on the challenges this new code for large yacht construction presented, CEO, Marcel Onkenhout said, “Working together with Lloyd’s Register and Cayman Islands Shipping Registry, we designed developed, engineered and built a magnificent yacht, which will undoubtedly set new standards in the industry.” And in line with her new parameters of compliance the upper deck boasts a fully certified helipad, in accordance with CAP437 regulations.

The vessel was designed in collaboration with Azure naval architects and Andrew Winch, who was also responsible for the interior. The latter is themed around the Far East, in line with the owner’s Chinese origin, and features extensive use of wenge, gold leaf and bamboo.

As a PYC compliant vessel, 26 guests will be accommodated alongside 28 crew. Inside there is an extensive spa and beach club complete with sauna, hammam, and ‘experiential showers’, plunge pool and beauty salon. The spa area feed a gym and Pilates studio that can be extended out onto the deck through a fold-down platform. There is also a 20m2 swimming pool.

She has a projected top speed in excess of 20 knots, thanks to her two 3,600kW MTU 20V 4000 M73L engines.
