Superstructure of Oceanco Y716 Ships in: VIDEO

The 295-footer (90-meter) is some time away from completion. But, Oceanco Y716—well, part of her—came into view this week.

Dutch Yachting, a social media outlet focused on yachts from The Netherlands, captured Y716’s aluminum superstructure arriving in the country last weekend. Construction took place at a subcontractor that Oceanco uses in Poland.

Just yesterday, Dutch Yachting shot this video of the superstructure on the move, too:

Espen Øino is responsible for the styling of Y716, which also goes by the name of Project Jasmine. Complementing her long length, she has a generous beam of 46’6” (14.2 meters).

Oceanco has kept quiet about most of the interior details since construction began. The few facts revealed include accommodations for 14 people in the owners’ party. Seven suites and staterooms cater to them. Considering current trends, the master suite is likely on the main or upper deck, enjoying a good deal of privacy. A crew of 26 (plus the captain) is aboard as well.

Renderings and a scale model of Y716 show significant-size ports lining the main and upper decks. They include three signature picture windows forward on the main deck. Meanwhile, the aft deck has a long pool, flanked by loose lounge chairs. Another pool, or perhaps a hot tub, is on an upper deck, also aft to take advantage of the views. Naturally, the megayacht has a helipad, too.

Twin 4,828-hp MTUs will power Y716, featuring naval architecture by Azure Naval Architects and Oceanco’s in-house team. No performance parameters have been disclosed.
