  1. OceAnco Launches 85.47-meter "Vibrant Curiosity"

    Recently, OceAnco shipyards in Alblasserdam, Netherlands launched the massive 85.47-meter project under the build name "Y-704". Y-704 is a derivative of the Y-700 series that started with "Amevi" (Y701) and continued with "Alfa Nero" (Y702), "Anastasia" (Y703) and now the newly launched Y704. The name of Y704 is "Vibrant Curiosity".

    The near 85.50-meter vessel is sleek in design and spreading her space throughout 5 decks. Her design is one that has been done by Nuvolari and Lenard who have worked on two of the previous new generation yachts to roll out of the halls of OceAnco, namely Amevi and Alfa Nero.

    One of the interesting features about Vibrant Curiosity is the strake of glass that penetrates three of the external amidship decks. This makes for a striking and unique design feature that only Vibrant Curiosity will have for the moment.

    Another feature that is interesting is the conception of the radar mast. After she rolled out of the construction hall, the mast was then lifted in place atop her massive sun-deck. According to the three-dimensional renderings located on the OceAnco website, the mast should be wrapped in three bands of tubular structure that will create continuity of the atrium glass feature.

    Another feature that is worthy of mention is the folding passerelle-gangway, located in the transom door. This is also a unique feature that is sure to be replicated on future yachts.

    The interior of this yacht was designed also by Nuvolari and Lenard and accommodations feature 1 master stateroom, 1 VIP stateroom, 3 double VIP staterooms and 2 double guest cabins. At her widest point she is 46.59-feet.

    For power, VB has 2 MTU 4,680 HP engines that will give her an anticipated top speed of 18.5 knots. At cruising speeds, Vibrant Curiosity is expected to have a phenomenal range of over 5,000 NM. This is possible with 284,500 LT in the tank.

    Vibrant Curiosity has been launched to be finished and delivered to her owner in the next few months. She was last seen hitching a ride on a pontoon/barge with her newly fitted mast.
