Video: Oceanco’s 109m superyacht ‘Project Bravo’ hits the water

By Rebecca Bradbury   19 November 2018

Dutch shipyard Oceanco launched its 109m/357ft motor yacht ‘Project Bravo’ on Saturday in the waters outside of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

One of the most innovative yachts launched by the yard, Project Bravo is now expected to undergo sea trials on the North Sea before her final outfitting takes place in Alblasserdam. She will then be delivered to her owner.

Featuring exterior styling by Nuvolari Lenard and naval architecture by Lateral Naval Architects, she is the first of Oceanco’s "new wave of forward-thinking yachts" to feature the yard’s innovative LIFE (Lengthened, Innovative, Fuel-efficient, Eco-friendly) design.

The fundamental elements of LIFE are brought together in the naval architecture to offer a “harmonious balance between weight, power, technical areas and luxury interior.”  

Lateral Naval Architects director James Roy said: “The LIFE design’s use of advanced hybrid propulsion incorporating significant battery capability, combined with a single tier engine room, allows novel use of space to deliver areas of outstanding luxury accommodation.”

Dan Lenard, a senior partner at Nuvolari Lenard, adds: “Our approach with Bravo was to maintain a stunningly sleek profile without sacrificing any interior space. This new exterior style concept is bound to create a new design stream.”

The interior design on board luxury yacht Project Bravo has been headed up by Reymond Langton Design. This is the first time the British design firm has worked with Oceanco.

Partner Pascale Reymond said the studio “worked with artisans and craftsmen to create bespoke artworks, fabrics and signature furniture pieces that all combine to create a warm, inviting environment.”

Once completed, Project Bravo will be the third largest yacht ever built in the Netherlands in terms of length and is currently placed to enter the World Largest Superyacht rankings in spot 36.
