Oceanco Monaco Yacht Show Report

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Netherlands – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

Oceanco held a breakfast press conference on the second day of the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show to update the luxury yachting press with what lies ahead on Oceanco’s horizon and to introduce them personally to the Chairman of the company, Mr. Mohammed Al Barwani.

Marcel Onkenhout, CEO, provided the opening remarks about the successful August launch of their latest 86m yacht Y706. Additionally, Onkenhout revealed the company’s plans for a new facility that marks the next step in Oceanco’s advance into the 100m+ market. Oceanco will be breaking ground on the land adjacent to its current facility for the planned 165m long x 52m wide x 32m high dry dock construction hall.

Oceanco showed a fast–paced 3D animation film to demonstrate all of the topics discussed. On view at the stand were the scale models of the new 100m+ projects designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, Nuvolari & Lenard, and Elie Saab. At the conclusion of Onkenhout’s comments and the film, Mr. Al Barwani chatted openly and amiably with the press about why he purchased the company. He also shared his positive views about the current state of the megayacht market including the plans to serve clients demanding 100m+ yachts with Oceanco’s uncompromised build-quality.
