Oceanco delivers superyacht Equanimity - first yacht built to PYC
by Risa Merl
Oceanco has delivered hull Y709 to its owner, who has christened the 91.5m yacht Equanimity.
The Netherlands-based builder Oceanco launched the superyacht, formerly known as project PA164, in October 2013. She is the first superyacht built to the Passenger Yacht Code, which means the owner has been able to max out the accommodation – on board there are beds for 26 guests and 28 crew. Equanimity's elegant, clean lines are the result of a collaboration between Oceanco and Andrew Winch Designs, with the latter solely responsible for the interior of the yacht.
Inside, the theme is inspired by Asia, reflecting the owner's Chinese origins, with the use of materials like wenge, gold leaf, bamboo and marble. Flexible is the word given to the arrangement of the cabins, which come as a master suite, three VIPs, three doubles and two twin staterooms. The master suite promises to be spectacular, with a lounge, study and private exterior deck with whirlpool.
Equally special is the spa and beach club, which come complete with sauna, hammam, 'experiential shower,' plunge pool and beauty salon. Above, there is a 20 square metre pool. The raised aft deck, meanwhile, is set up as a fully certified helipad.
The steel hulled superyacht is powered by twin 4,828hp MTUs, giving her a top speed in excess of 20 knots, while Equanimity's Ice Class hull and 271,000-litre fuel capacity offer the owner almost unlimited options for exploration.
