REV: Espen Øino on Vard's record-breaking 182.9m extreme build

REV: Espen Øino on Vard's record-breaking 182.9m extreme build

1 of 4 1/4

The brief

182.9 metre Vard explorer yacht REV, the largest in-build project in the world, is one of the most exciting things happening in the yachting industry right now. Along with the technical innovations she promises, a large part of REV's appeal is the marine science and research barriers her owner hopes to break once delivered.

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 at the Superyacht Design Symposium 2018 in Kitzbühel, 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. The vessel was initially around 140 metres, but with a more specific brief it became the length it is now."
