Superyacht Y707 launched by Oceanco
by Raphael Montigneaux
The 88.5 metre Project Y707 - the second largest superyacht ever built by Oceanco - left her shed early last Friday morning, in the last stage of a build which was commenced in 2008.
Y707 has naval architecture by Azure Naval Architects and Oceanco's in-house team, while her beautiful exterior lines come from the boards of Australian designer Sam Sorgiovanni. Lloyd's registered and MCA compliant, this six-deck superyacht, built in steel and aluminium, is ingeniously designed with interconnected interior and exterior areas thanks to large sliding doors that allow guests to be both inside and outside simultaneously.
Sam Sorgiovanni is also responsible for the contemporary interior, which will accommodate 12 guests. The master suite, complete with office, private deck and spa pool, will enjoy panoramic views from the foredeck. Five further VIP cabins will accommodate the other guests, including a larger one with a lounge and his-and-hers bathrooms.
Y707 is powered by twin 3,600kW MTU 20V 4000M73L engines giving a top speed of 20 knots. Special features include a 7.5m swimming pool with height adjustable floor on the main aft deck, an helipad on the sundeck, as well as a dedicated indoor 3D cinema.
With the same designer and similar colour scheme, the Y707 is reminiscent of the beautiful Oceanco Y703 launched in 2008. The Dutch yard has produced another queen of the seas, which is now scheduled to be delivered in April.
