    Let's kick this thread off with the original rendering and some details of this spectacular new build by Oceanco. This past summer (2004), Oceanco began construction of an 80-meter yacht, code named “Y701”. This magnificent new yacht is a collaboration between Oceanco and the noted Italian design firm of Nuvolari & Lenard... the dynamic-duo behind the new Palmer Johnson's and Carver Marquis series.

    Despite its large dimensions and muscular construction, the Y701 has a sleek, aggressive silhouette. Her superstructure epitomizes the yacht’s strong character, offering a bold, “ship-look", with broad expedition style decks to the rear and wing stations forward.

    We'd like to extend a BIG YachtForums Thank You to Oceanco's marketing director; Michele Flandin for supplying images of the construction process! :)

    Here are the specs...

    Length overall.......... 80m (262’ 5 )
    Beam max................ 14.20m (46’ 7)
    Top speed................ 19 knots
    Range....................... 6000 Nautical miles at 14 knots
    Engine type.............. 2 x MTU 16V595 TE 70 3490 kW at 1750 rpm
    Fuel capacity............ 245 tons
    Water capacity......... 80 tons
    Material.................... Steel hull and aluminium superstructure
    Classification............ X100 A1 SSC Yacht (P) MONO G6 XLMC UMS - MCA
    Accommodation........ 2 master + 1 VIP + 4 double guest + 2 single guest cabins.
    Crew........................ Capt's cabin + 2 staff + 2 single crew cabins + 11 double cabins
    Designer.................. Nuvolari & Lenard
    Delivery date........... Autumn 2006

    The original rendering...

    Great pictures; just after these pictures were taken, i came (too late) to make my "spy pictures" (i'm referring to the quility here of course...)

    Mammoet is a company thats specialized in heavy transports.
    These "tractors", are hightech units that can be coupled endlessly to other units where each wheel can be steered independently!
    Ive seen a demonstration of those and they're inbelievable.
    On the picture with the green painted foor, you can see 3 of these on the left of the 701, side by side.

    The sky-crane pilothouse is normally used for container transports.
    This one is actually quite old but there are enormously strong and hightech ones in use which dont use this crane-like movement but huge cylinder-like structures to lift the wheelhouse.

    Guys,

    I'm going to split this thread when more images arrive, to create a story that will link from the front page. (so all the pictures stay in sequence), but we'll keep the thread running for discussion.

    BTW... Michele Flandin, Oceanco's marketing director, is a member of YachtForums and she checks in regularly. She knows how much I appreciate her help on this project, so be sure to let her know the same. :)

    Thanks!

    Is Michele ever in at Oceanco Holland?

    Loved to meet her:)))

    Would there ever be a chance to visit Oceanco between projects? ( prefarably within projects, but i understand the complications there.)

    Can't say Erik, but I know she's extremely busy. That's why we should truly appreciate the time she's taking to photo-document Y701 for us. It might be best to respect this... and not over-step our welcome.

    Thanks tantetruss
    Another lovely looking yacht. Oceanco are building some stunning yachts at the momment.

    Thank you Michele for taking the trouble to bring us these pictures, its great that persons like me, who are not in the industry will get to see the stages that a yacht build goes through. Even better is the fact that its Y701. Its one of the nicest looking yachts I have seen.

    I know there has been a lot of discussion on this yacht and many do not like the lines and many dont think it is going to be one of the greats. However, for me, she is beautiful. I love the lines, i love the pictures, thanks Michelle. Anyone have anyidea who the owner is or the estimated cost of such a project. I am more excited about this project than Platium. Cant wait to see her launched.
    thanks YachtForum.

    The Y701 project is brought to rest under Oceanco's shed for continued fitting and finishing.

    Interesting... I've never heard anything but WOW! on the Y701. I think it's one of the most spectacular new yachts to date... and we are lucky to follow the build process. As for owners, this is something we don't discuss. We just discuss the yachts. On the cost... hard to say. But a bit more than a Bayliner. ;)

    Dammit so i cant afford one then. Oh well back to my canoe :)
    Thanks for the reply though. Its on another forum where i heard not such favourable reviews about OceAnco's work, and its been described as "go with the flow". I must say i thinks thats wrong. I love it. Pelorus has competetion in my books.

    i think under Mr. A's ownership the yard will reach new heights. I have had pleasure to interface with his tanker company on occasion and the maintenance of the vessels was top notch. a quality fleet indeed. Even though ALFA FOUR was not pleasing to several eyes she greatly exceeded the original spec intended under his guidance. winning award for technical excellence.

    i think these are new years for oceAnco.

    I always thought Alfa IV was beautiful except for the horribleness of her fore-deck.
