Known as 105H during its rebuild, the Oceanco 105m superyacht H (formerly known as Neom & Indian Empress), emerged from her shed on Tuesday night after a transformative refit at its construction facilities in the Netherlands, described by the team as the “relaunch of a completely new Oceanco ''.
Showcasing a new sleek, contemporary profile, her hull has also been lengthened by 10 meters, likely to accommodate a beach club, with an additional outdoor swimming pool adding to her allure. She also boasts remodeled interiors courtesy of Reymond Langton Design.
In addition to her aesthetic features, the motor yacht has also received upgrades to her technology systems and is fully compliant with IMO’s stringent Tier III safety standards. Furthermore, Oceanco has added enhanced sustainability features in line with the yachting industry's much-vaunted ambitions, to ensure a more positive impact on the delicate marine environment and the planet as a whole.
Oceanco’s CEO Marcel Onkenhout comments: “To say that this has been a remarkable process is an understatement. The project has called for passion, dedication, and extraordinary craftsmanship, with many involved in her creation now contributing to her recreation, including myself. We are proud to say that we are relaunching a completely new Oceanco.”
To say that this has been a remarkable process is an understatement.
In terms of sustainability considerations for the yachting industry, the impressive rebuild of superyacht H proves that any seaworthy yacht can be transformed and its environmental profile brought up to date to meet the latest technology and safety requirements, not to mention retaining its aesthetic appeal for future buyers.
It is about seeing the potential for all vessels, rather than starting from a blank sheet of paper each time.
The A Group’s Richard Hein, who acted as the independent owner’s representative for the project, adds: “This almost unimaginable transformation has been able to take place thanks to the shared trust, perseverance and expertise of the team involved. A yacht is more than just the materialization of an owner’s vision. It has its own character, its own specific habitat, with a unique purpose and story. Through the achievements of this project we have been able to extend the story of a remarkable superyacht for decades to come. It is about seeing the potential for all vessels, rather than starting from a blank sheet of paper each time.”
Superyacht H will be delivered to her owners at some point in the near future, but at this stage is not expected to be made available for charter.
