Oceanco 110 M Primadonna

by Oceanco with Hot Lab yacht & design and BMT Nigel Gee

In issue 21 of Yacht Première in 2011, we presented the project concept for an 86-metre / 282-foot super yacht with the code name Oceanco PA 168, which now bears code name Oceanco DP 019 and was developed jointly by Dutch shipyard Oceanco, Dutch company Azure Naval Architects and Italian firm Hot Lab Yacht & Design. Now, however, the current issue (33) of Yacht Première sees the presentation of the project concept for a 110-metre / 360-foot super yacht bearing the code name Primadonna and, to date, code name Oceanco DP 028, developed jointly by Oceanco, British company BMT Nigel Gee Naval Architecture and Italian firm Hot Lab Yacht & Design. The new Primadonna project concept was based on a tried and tested Oceanco hull platform while the naval architecture and engineering and the exterior design were developed by BMT Nigel Gee and Hot Lab, respectively. Her build is intended to be entirely in metal, with high-strength steel for the hull and light aluminium alloy for the superstructure. Until this innovative, appealing project concept by Oceanco can become a reality, there are two ways of admiring a preview of the overall appearance of this Primadonna before she takes to the stage: the first is to stay comfortably seated and look at the photorealistic renders published in these pages, but the second is to go to Monte Carlo during the Monaco Yacht Show and visit the Oceanco stand where a visual model of the super yacht made to a 1:50 scale (so with a length overall of 2.20 metres or 7 feet 3 inches!) is on display, so that you can see the details for yourself. But the best solution is probably to take both opportunities in sequence, so enjoy your reading and bon voyage! There will certainly be plenty of good trips and cruises for the lucky passengers who will soon be able to enjoy the capacious onboard accommodation made up of one master stateroom and eight guest staterooms, four of which feature a private balcony. A maximum of just 18 people will therefore be pampered and cosseted by the attentive professional staff and crew, comprising 40 well-trained professionals – a truly ideal solution for the possibility of chartering the vessel as well. Externally, Oceanco’s new project concept boasts elegant, striking lines that create a sleek appearance from the very first glance. In spite of her imposing size, the super yacht has been designed to inspire a feeling of agile lightness, emphasised by the band of windows that defines the levels of the numerous decks with clean precision, creating a visual effect of lengthening of the silhouette. The windows used most frequently in the design are the floor-to-ceiling type, the aim being to reduce the aesthetic impact of the vast volumes, while optical tricks involving the balanced alternation of solid and empty spaces are also employed. To give one example, the upper deck and the Owner’s deck are geometrically linked by two arches, creating a striking visual effect that deceives the eye and makes it look as though there is a single deck rather than two different levels one on top of the other. As we go to press, the layout designs for the various decks of the super yacht have unfortunately not yet been published and only some preliminary information is currently available. The sun deck is to feature a sunbathing area with a hydromassage pool and sun pads, a panoramic lounge area with an alfresco bar and comfortable chairs, and even an open-air gym. The design for the forward section of the upper deck includes a touch-and-go helipad, from which the Owner will be able to leave the helicopter and go straight to the private deck below, without having to go through other spaces on board. The large Owner’s suite includes a private lounge, a private gym and a private exterior deck with a whirlpool tub in addition to the master stateroom. A magnificent beach area has been designed for the stern of the main deck, arranged around a huge swimming pool with a waterfall connected to the hydromassage tub on the lower deck below. The lower deck itself can be used in all weather and climate conditions thanks to a sliding cover made of glass panels. Alongside this space, which is inspired by the caldarium and frigidarium of ancient Rome, there is a wellness area with a spa and sauna as well as the beach club area with two side hatches that can be opened in both sides of the hull to afford the Owner and guests the exclusive privilege of direct visual and physical contact with the sea.
