At 384 feet (117 meters), Oceanco Y719 made for an impressive launch on October 1. She also made history. Firstly, the megayacht is the largest yacht to date from the Dutch builder. Secondly, she is the largest yacht to date from any shipyard in The Netherlands.
The yacht first appeared in public, though not nearly complete, in 2019, when she slid down the ways of Oceanco’s construction facility. She then moved under tow to Oceanco’s outfitting shipyard, where she has remained ever since.
Towering seven decks tall, the megayacht has dedicated helipads, one on her foredeck and the other aft on her upper deck. From aerial footage, it appears further that Oceanco Y719 has a large pool on her main deck and hot tubs nestled forward on two other decks. (On a related note, the yacht in the water to the right of the outfitting shed when she emerges is Bravo Eugenia. She arrived back at the shipyard in August for service work.)
As much as she’s notable for her length, Oceanco Y719, set for delivery in spring 2022, will not remain the shipyard’s largest superyacht for too long. Neither, interestingly, will she remain the largest Dutch-built yacht for long. The shipyard has Y721 in build, rumored to measure 127 meters, or about 417 feet, in length. She’s a sailing superyacht, too. You might already have read a few headlines about her as well, since several media outlets claim Amazon founder Jeff Bezos owns her. Regardless of whether he does or not, that yacht will hit the water next year.
