Oceanco Y715, following a four days of trials joined Oceanco Y712, the shipyard’s record-setting sailing yacht, in Rotterdam.
Y715, a 290-footer (88.5-meter), launched on Halloween last year. Oceanco cannot divulge many details about her, at least at this point. Therefore, the few facts it’s released include Sam Sorgiovanni Designs serving as the stylist. Additionally, Azure Naval Architects is collaborating with its in-house team for engineering. Amid her 47’6” (14.5-meter) beam are relaxation areas outfitted by Sam Sorgiovanni Designs as well. No information is yet available on the decor, the number of staterooms, or guest or crew capacities.
The sea trial photos, though, reveal something interesting not yet previously known. Complementing her dark-blue hull, Y715 has a wood-look transom. It appears to be the same design element that debuted aboard another Oceanco styled by Sorgiovanni, namely Anastasia, in 2008. If it is indeed the same, then what appears to be wood is actually faux painting, so good that it fools the eye even up close.
Y715 isn’t the only Oceanco conducting sea trials as of late. The sailing-yacht project referred to as Y712 undertook two days of trials over the weekend, too. Also known as project Solar, Y712 bears styling and interior design by Nuvolari-Lenard. Furthermore, her 348-foot (106-meter) length and volume closing in on 3,000 gross tons make her the largest sailing superyacht in the world.
Which brings up an important point. While Y712 is the second sailing yacht to emerge at Oceanco, she’s really it’s first. Oceanco did construct the 282-foot (85.9-meter) Aquijo, which saw delivery last year. But, Vitters Shipyard signed the contract with the client, subbing construction out to Oceanco.
