Super Yacht Y707 Arrives
One of four superyachts currently under construction
Yet another superyacht in the Y700 series from Oceanco has been put under cover at their shipyard in Alblasserdam, the Netherlands. This time it is Y707 one of four 85+m yachts currently under construction by the builder.
The completed hull was transported to the yard from its nearby hull manufacturer and was joined to her superstructure before being maneuvered into the shed the following day. All technical spaces are painted and ready for the installation of equipment; the acoustic, thermal and fire protection insulation is already in place; and the hull itself is fully sandblasted and sprayed. The yacht is on schedule to continue with her interior and outfitting works for delivery in 2011.
Designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, glass and sliding doors give the impression of a wide open space from portside to starboard. The owner, and guests, can enjoy maximum privacy through strictly separated routes on each part of the yacht. The owner’s apartment has several rooms and a spacious deck, on top of the entirely closed in forecastle deck. The yacht also features a helicopter deck and is the first yacht to be powered with the MTU 20V 4000-series engines designed for reduced noise and economic use of fuel.
