The sponsor of the Young Designer of the Year Award 2019
Oceanco is a leading yacht builder of custom large complex yachts with an innovative purpose-built state-of-the art dry dock capable of accommodating superyachts up to 140 metres in length. To date, 13 Oceanco yachts built since 2007 have appeared in the 'The World's Top 100 Yachts' list. These include the industry’s first 300ft (91.5 metre) PYC yacht Equanimity, the 279ft (86m) high performance ketch Aquijo, the (88.5 metre) Barbara, the 361ft (110 metre) Jubilee - the largest yacht ever built at Oceanco and in the Netherlands and most recently the 350ft (106.7 metre) sailing yacht Black Pearl.
Black Pearl, Oceanco’s first delivery of 2018, is the largest dynarig sailing yacht in the world with a striking design that is commensurate to her innovative 230ft (70 metre) high mast system. This delivery was shortly followed by the 90 metre DAR, a ground breaking design bearing the unmistakable DNA of an Oceanco. Several superyachts are currently under construction and continuous research and development is wrapped around the constant search for new shapes, materials and technologies. Oceanco has a solid reputation for thriving on ideas which have never been developed before.
Oceanco, a long standing partner is pleased to support the Young Designer of the Year Award in conjunction with Boat International Media. Winning this prestigious award is an important milestone in the career of student and trainee designers. At Oceanco, we follow new design talent with great interest and we are pleased to be able to encourage and celebrate their vision.
