110m Oceanco flagship yacht Project Jubilee launched
by Chris Jefferies
The largest superyacht built in The Netherlands to date, the 110 metre Oceanco Project Jubilee, has been launched.
The new build project was signed by Burgess in October 2012, with naval architecture by Azure and Oceanco, and interior design by Australian Sam Sorgiovanni. The technical consultancy services division of Burgess acted as both technical consultants and owner’s representatives. Exterior styling is by Igor Lobanov and as these first images show, there is a strong emphasis on straight lines across all five decks.
Project Jubilee was built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure to have a total interior volume of more than 4,500GT. Power comes from a pair of MTU diesel engines for an estimated top speed of 18.5 knots.
Key features include a fully-certified foredeck helipad, an aft-deck swimming pool with built-in aquarium and a superyacht beach club below. Accommodation is for 30 guests in 15 cabins, including a separate owner's deck.
In a statement, the yard added: "This yacht has a very sleek and original profile that will surely turn heads wherever she travels. Her elongated profile flows elegantly and gracefully from bow to stern."
Project Jubilee will now undergo sea trials before cruising the Mediterranean in her debut season.
Project Jubilee has been the first yacht to have taken advantage of Oceanco’s new state of the art facilities. The Dutch superyacht builder announced its expansion in 2014, which included building a new dry dock with a shed to accommodate yachts of up to 140 metres in length, measuring 62,000 metres square.
The 33 metre-high building and dry dock, constructed in concrete and heavily insulated with integrated thermal and cooling systems, is said to be virtually impervious to outside weather and ground water temperatures.
Oceanco is also building the largest sailing yacht ever to be built in The Netherlands, Project Solar. The DynaRig sailing yacht features a unique array of green technologies highlighted by the ability to operate entirely on solar power. Delivery is scheduled for 2017.
