Dutch superyacht builder, Oceanco has confirmed that its latest project M/Y Bravo was delivered at the end of 2018. At 109m, the new project is the second largest superyacht Oceanco has delivered to date and the first completed project to feature the shipyard’s new ‘LIFE Design’ approach.

‘Bravo represents a new direction for Oceanco,’ commented the shipyard in a statement to the press, when referring to Bravo’s ‘LIFE Design’. Taking its acronym from the words  ‘Lengthened, Innovative, Fuel-efficient and Eco-friendly,’ the yacht is said to feature notable reductions in overall power demands and see an improvement in the use of guest spaces thanks to clever space planning.

“The excellent sea-keeping and performance demonstrated during Bravo’s sea trials confirmed that the LIFE Design qualities are indeed embedded in Bravo’s DNA,” says James Roy, managing director of Lateral, which are responsible for the yacht’s naval architecture. “Coupled with her hybrid propulsion system, Bravo delivers exceptional performance and is configured to offer multiple operational modes, each matched to the variable operating profile of a yacht designed to adventure autonomously across the world’s oceans.”

Designed by Nuvolari Lenard, the yacht has a particularly low profile, which keeps her well balanced, in avoiding a bulky appearance, which yachts over the 100m mark can sometimes fall victim to. “This new style will certainly create a new design stream,” says Carlo Nuvolari, partner in Nuvolari Lenard.

Other features of the yacht include helipads, on both the foredeck and the aft deck, a large tender garage and dedicated equipment stowage, and a spa and fully equipped gym on the lower deck.

“Oceanco credits the success of this extraordinary new benchmark yacht to the dedicated team effort of all individuals at Oceanco, Lateral, both design studios, Burgess, and the owner’s team”, says project director Edske Smit.

Although exact details of the yacht’s interior, designed by Reymond Langton, are yet to be revealed, we know that the interiors have been designed to a contemporary and sophisticated finish. Inside, the yacht features a selection of light maple wood and white pearl lacquer, with contrasting accents of walnut and ebony.

“We worked very closely with the owner to find the perfect artisans and craftsmen in creating bespoke artworks, fabrics and signature furniture pieces that reflect the owner’s style and essence, and combine to create a warm, inviting environment for all on board”, says Pascale Reymond, partner in Reymond Langton Design.
