Dutch shipyard Oceanco launched its 109m/357ft motor yacht
Sporting exterior design by Nuvolari Lenard and naval architecture by Lateral Naval Architects, Project Bravo hit the water of Rotterdam in the Netherlands on November 17.
The Dutch yard described her as “a prime example of Oceanco’s new wave of forward-thinking yachts”.
And has even claimed that she is the first to feature a “LIFE” (Lengthened, Innovative, Fuel Efficient, Eco-friendly) design.
James Roy, Director of Lateral Naval Architects comments, “The LIFE design’s use of advanced hybrid propulsion incorporating significant battery capability, combined with a single tier engine room allows novel use of space to deliver areas of outstanding luxury accommodation.“
Bravo embodies Oceanco’s expertise in building large complex yachts, whereby project management proficiency played an integral part in Bravo’s success.
“A bespoke project of such magnitude and splendor will always present interesting challenges and opportunities,” says owner’s representative, Burgess.
With Project Bravo, we created a truly spectacular yacht whose excellence is a clear reflection of the commitment of a dynamic and professional project team.”
Bravo is ready to push the limits within the world of superyachts to a new level in 2019!
This “LIFE” design centers around naval architecture which “creates a harmonious balance between weight, power, technical areas, and luxury interior.”
Lateral Naval Architects Director James Roy said the design “allows novel use of space to deliver areas of outstanding luxury accommodation."
Nuvolari Lenard said the yacht’s exterior design features “a stunningly sleek profile without sacrificing any interior space.”
After the innovations introduced with "Alfa Nero", Oceanco asked us to "raise the bar" and create another remarkable and revolutionary design, says Dan Lenard, senior partner of Nuvolari-Lenard.
Our approach with Bravo was to maintain a stunningly sleek profile without sacrificing any interior space. This new exterior style concept is bound to create a new design stream. It is important to us that we started this new stream together with Oceanco"
The sleek and sporty yacht also features a heli-landing platform, on both the foredeck and the aft deck, a large tender garage, and dedicated equipment stowage, providing plenty of space for a large selection of water toys.
She also has a large spa that includes a sauna, steam room, massage room, plunge pool, and a rain shower. Also, on the lower deck are a complete gym and a generous and luxurious Beach Club.
Meanwhile, the interior design comes from the boards of Reymond Langton Design. Partner Pascale Reymond said the studio worked with “artisan and craftsman to create bespoke fabrics and signature furniture pieces.” The effect is a “warm, inviting environment on board.”
Her interior is characterized by a sophisticated elegant contemporary design that features light maple wood and white pearl lacquer with contrasting accents of walnut and ebony.
Featuring a beam measuring 16.3 meters, Project Bravo will have a top speed of 17.5 knots. She is now expected to undergo sea trials in the North Sea before her delivery later this year.
Once completed, Project Bravo will be the third largest yacht ever built in the Netherlands in terms of length and is currently placed to enter the World Largest Superyacht rankings in spot 36.
