The brief

At the 2018 Superyacht Design Symposium we learned more about the 182.6 metre Vard explorer yacht REV, the largest in-build project in the world.

Ordered in May 2017 by Kjell Inge Røkke’s ocean research company Rosellinis Four-10 and due to launch in 2020, REV was designed by superyacht supremo Espen Øino. Her interior will be able to accommodate up to 90 people, including crewmembers, scientists and researchers as well as the owner and his guests.

Speaking in Kitzbühel today (January 30), Øino revealed that the owner did not originally intend to build the world's largest yacht: "I always say that the length, beam and dimensions aren’t the starting point, they are the result.
