Superyacht BARBARA Delivered From Oceanco

Industry news

By Oliver Pearson  16 February 2017

The joint 65th largest superyacht in the world, the 88.5m/290ft motor yacht BARBARA was photographed making her passage from the Oceanco shipyard to the UK for her highly anticipated delivery.

Shrouded in secrecy and not known to be available for charter, superyacht BARBARA has naturally attracted a healthy amount of intrigue in the months leading up to her delivery.

Beautifully sleek, her midnight navy hull is perfectly contrasted by a bright white superstructure which features stylish cutaways to provide a striking and unique profile.

As well as a generously proportioned swim platform, the motor yacht also includes a vast amount of exterior space nicely appointed between the aft and fore.

With her exterior and interior spaces designed by frequent Oceanco collaborator Sam Sorgiovanni, BARBARA bears some impressive similarities to other yachts from the iconic Dutch shipyard.

Indeed, just like the 76m/248ft motor yacht ANASTASIA and the 88.5m/290ft luxury yacht NIRVANA before her, BARBARA features a distinct nameplate fixed onto a metal designed to look like a glossy wood. Whilst NIRVANA incorporated the material around her entire superstructure, the subtle use of BARBARA is sure to excite fans of this design just as much.

As well as being the sistership to NIRVANA, BARBARA also shares the same dimensions as the 88.5m/290ft motor yacht INFINITY. With such an award-winning pedigree, there can be no doubt about the significance of BARBARA.

Due to her private construction, there are no published images of the interior, but with such an impressive designer taking care of the spaces, there’s no doubt it’ll be remarkable.

Keeping readers up to, YachtCharterFleet will be sure to release that latest information as it becomes available.
