Oceanco is among the builders squarely taking aim at the upper end of the megayacht market. As such, upon contract, it’s prepared to build this 361-foot (110-meter) project. Rialto, “rise” or “ascent” in Italian, is fittingly styled by Venice-based Nuvolari-Lenard.
The styling of Rialto fits in with the overall Oceanco family feel, while still standing apart. One of Nuvolari-Lenard’s design missions was to incorporate vast amounts of glass to bring the outside in. Skylights are one way it’s achieved. The megayacht’s master suite and private lobby—situated on one of two upper decks devoted to the owner—benefit from a skylight. Another skylight sends natural light straight down to Rialto’s main deck. Speaking of the main deck, two fold-down balconies do the trick even more. They flank the main-deck dining area aboard Rialto.
Oceanco is renowned for signature transoms, and Rialto is no different. Nuvolari-Lenard has placed an infinity pool on the main aft deck, complemented by two hot tubs and, of course, sunning space. The pool floor can additionally rise up to make the water shallower. Then there’s the eye-catching glass expanse just beyond the pool. Nuvolari-Lenard made it a glass ceiling, over the gym.
With a beam of 59’1” (18 meters), Rialto offers accommodations for 18 guests. The suggested layout contains seven VIPs, a double stateroom, and a twin stateroom. A beauty salon, beach club with a dive locker, cinema, and even a medical room are also onboard Rialto. Obviously Oceanco and Nuvolari-Lenard will reconfigure the arrangement if a buyer so wishes. In addition, a buyer is free to select an interior designer.
Because of Rialto’s passenger count, Oceanco and Nuvolari-Lenard, as well as BMT Nigel Gee, which paired with Oceanco’s in-house team for naval architecture, have ensured the megayacht is compliant with the Passenger Yacht Code (PYC). On contract, the megayacht can be built to the Lloyd’s classification X100 A1 Passenger Yacht X SCM ECO.
Oceanco expects Rialto to be capable of a 21½-knot top speed. She’ll be powered by four 4,290-hp MTU 20V 4000M 73L diesels. More than 71,000 gallons (271,000 liters) of fuel will ensure any popular port is within reach.
