  1. OceAnco Unveils 90-meter 'Moonstone' Design

    Dutch superyacht builder OceAnco has started the year with a bang unveiling a brand new design to the yachting world. It’s a large yacht stretching nearly 300-feet (approximately 90-meters) and encompassing five decks above the waterline. One of the important and fascinating attributes of this yacht has to do with the technology employed onboard, particularly so with lighting! The project is called 'Moonstone' and as you can see in the renderings the hull features a prism-like effect made possible by 300 lit triangles (per hull side)that can be illuminated at varying intensities, colours and hues to paint an almost limitless glowing canvas.
  2. Although the lighting façade represents one of the major features onboard there are plenty of other areas and spaces for guests to enjoy onboard the 295-foot Moonstone. There is a large pool on the aft main deck with a glass edge and true to the lighting scheme, the pool lights can be controlled seamlessly. There is a large jacuzzi on the upper-most aft deck for guests who prefer the shallow heated bubbling of the spa. The Van Geest designed superyacht is being engineered by OceAnco to be PYC-compliant with the ability to carry more than the usual twelve passengers.
  3. The plumb bow of Moonstone has an enclosed mooring deck allowing the top of the forward bow to be clean, clear and uncluttered which also allows for a helipad to be integrated as well. The sky deck has a glass-enclosed sky-lounge that provides full 360 degree views to guests. The lighting is the star feature and Van Geest has been working closely with advanced lighting design company Temeloy to produce this wonderful LED lighting concept. In addition to the hull lighting panels, the superstructure overhangs are back-lit and can in effect reflect a number of surrounding scenarios based on where the yacht is located. Through a system of fish-eye cameras around the yacht it will be possible to tie-in sunsets/sunrises, sky scenes and even water reflections through light projection. Also it is proposed that solar panels are integrated into the roof of the sky lounge encompassing some 70 square-meters and with this it is estimated to provide power to the hull LED panels to illuminate for around 3 hours from a full day of sun charge.
  4. The decks onboard Moonstone will be a relaxing affair with the versatile modular and smart exterior deck furniture. They are easily complemented by sunbrellas to provide shade from unrelenting rays. With multiple decks to choose from, guests aboard Moonstone will have no problem in finding the perfect spot to relax. Construction is envisioned to be with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. Naval architecture is by OceAnco/Azure Naval Architects and exterior design by Van Geest Design. Fourteen guests can be accommodated in 1 X Master suite, 4 X doubles and 2 X twins. There is berthing for twenty-nine crew members as well. There is a gym, spa/wellness area, cinema and wonderful saloon spaces and exquisite dining venue. Top speed is anticipated to be 18.5-knots thanks to twin MTU 20V 4000 M73L marine diesels. LOA for Moonstone is just shy of 300-feet and with a beam of nearly 50-feet. Very spacious dimensions!
