Graffiti covers Y726 the New Launch from Oceanco

There was a time when the words graffiti and superyacht brought grief to most yacht lovers.  

But when Oceanco invited the Rotterdam-based artist I AM EELCO to adorn the side of their new launching with graffiti they created a first.

Oceanco has moved its latest construction project to its outfitting facilities. Y726 was transported along the Oude Maas River from the company’s first-phase construction facilities in Zwijndrecht.  The hull arrived at its outfitting facilities in Alblasserdam. This is where the final stages of construction will be completed.  She will then be prepared for sea trials and delivery.

Graffiti wink

In a characteristically playful act, they invited I AM EELCO onboard.  He was asked to add a cheeky cheerful graffiti wink to the hull before transportation.

Y726 is one of the largest yachts by volume to be built by the Dutch shipyard.  She has an overall length of 111m, beam of 16m and displacement of 4,550gt.  Her exterior design is from Espen Øino International alongside an interior from Mark Berryman Design. Naval architecture was by Lateral together with the shipyard’s in-house team.

The new yacht offers accommodation for up to 28 guests.  They will be looked after by up to 34 crew.  

Features onboard

Notable features onboard include a winter garden, covered cocktail area, outdoor cinema, sundeck lounge, private owner’s area including a jacuzzi.  She will also get a multi-purpose entertainment area including a jacuzzi and swimming pool on main deck aft. Inside, there is a cinema, gym, spa with sauna and steam room, and a beach club lounge with bar.  This opens directly onto the swimming platform. The yacht’s interior will benefit from spectacular views, courtesy of large windows that have been integrated throughout.

Dan Jackson, Falcon Yacht Management, says: “Y726 is a prime example of what can be achieved when all parties at the table work together in a positive and collaborative way. We are very much looking forward to entering the next phase of this project and delivering the client a stunning yacht.”

Edske Smit, Oceanco’s Project Director, comments: “We are looking forward to getting started on the next phase of Y726’s construction in the New Year. There has been a very collaborative spirit on the project so far, and she promises to be a spectacular addition to the Oceanco fleet once delivered. We are grateful for the positive partnership that has developed among everyone involved, including the co-makers and owner’s team.”
