Three-hundred sixty-one feet. That’s what 110 meters works out to, and that’s the length of a concept project that Nuvolari-Lenard styled for Oceanco and that the duo feels confident will attract attention.
DP002, as Oceanco refers to the concept megayacht, was unveiled in model form at the Monaco Yacht Show. She bears naval architecture by the shipyard’s in-house team with BMT Nigel Gee. Hull studies show that she should see a swift turn of speed for something of her size, about 20½ knots with quadruple MTU 20V4000M73 diesels, among the most powerful propulsion packages used aboard megayachts these days.
Styling-wise, DP002 has a family resemblance to other Nuvolari-Lenard projects and Oceanco projects. The same is true of features like the aft-deck pool, which became a signature element when it was introduced aboard Alfa Nero several years ago. Something new, though, which we can easily see becoming a new signature style is the use of mirrored glass to shade seating and relaxation areas. Equally noteworthy, that same glass becomes transparent when it’s backlit at night, creating a lovely effect.
You’ll see that and more in the following video. While general arrangement is ultimately being left up to the owner who commissions the project, nine guest staterooms (with seven of them being VIPs) are suggested, as is the location of the owner’s suite three decks above the waterline. A crew of 40 can attend to everyone’s needs, too. Given the 57’7” (17.6 -meter) beam and nearly 18, 622 square feet (1,730 square meters) of interior space, surely no one will complain about not having enough elbowroom.
The video also includes specifics about fuel capacity, draft, and even the types of helicopters that can be accommodated on the foredeck helipad.
