Super Yacht Models on Show

Dutch Superyacht builder to present scale models at Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

Dutch Superyacht builder Oceanco will present four scale models of recently designed superyachts at the 2009 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

They will also introduce their 110m PA107 design, a new styling concept based on a newly developed platform, in accordance with SOLAS rules for 36 passengers.

Powered by a hybrid propulsion system, ensuring minimum fuel use and maximum power, the yacht can easily reach a speed of 21 knots. One of the most remarkable architectural features is an exterior glass elevator, rising from the boat deck to the helicopter platform. Glass is prominently present in the design of the PA107, where it is not only applied in a functional manner, but also serves as an important aesthetic element.

Another model on display will be that of the Y708, measuring 85.6 meters and scheduled to launch in 2012.Her many assets include a spacious swimming pool convertible into a helicopter landing area and a completely private owner’s deck.
