New Concept: Hot Labs 86-meter for Oceanco
The PA168 is a new 86m superyacht concept based on the reputable and highly regarded
Oceanco platform and designed by the Milan-based Hot Lab studio. The contemporary exterior lines
with a functional yet innovative interior layout are amongst the obvious design merits of the concept.
Despite the yacht’s generous dimensions, her lines have been designed to convey a visual sense of lightness. Fundamental in this regard is the layout of the various decks, which in profile provide abundant open spaces aft that rapidly converge towards the antenna mast in the centre. In front of this point, the decks are developed more horizontally with a subtle yet dynamic downward curve to the open foredeck. This spacious area, which functions as an extendible platform for larger helicopters, emphasises and balances the graceful lines of the superstructure.
