EXCLUSIVE: Oceanco launches sailing yacht Y712


Following her unveiling last week, Dutch shipyard Oceanco has launched its largest yacht near Rotterdam yesterday as the 106-metre sailing yacht Project Y712 is lowered into the water for the first time yesterday.



The mysterious bow cover was removed revealing a radical wave-slicing stem.
The project is the largest yacht designed by the Italian design duo at Nuvolari Lenard, who has worked with Oceanco before on superyachts such as Alfa Nero and Seven Seas.
The deign studio brought their usual Italian flair to the table and managed to hide the vessel’s impressive 2,700 GT volume in a sleek and well-proportioned design.

The next stage of the project will be the stepping of the yacht’s three Dyna-Rig masts, similar to that of the Maltese Falcon.

Known for now only by her project name of Y712, the yacht is technically the largest private sailing yacht in the world, designed to travel under the power of her sails alone.
The enormous 142.8-metre Sailing Yacht A, on the other hand, is classed as a sail-assisted motor vessel.
Despite these technicalities, the two vessels are without a doubt some of the most advanced projects to have been completed over the last 24 months and are certainly set to contribute to the developments in the build, design and conception of superyachts for many years to come.
