Oceanco’s Y705 85.50m on her way to completion!

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

The latest hull to arrive at Oceanco’s finishing facility in Alblasserdam is the 85.47m (280.53ft) Y705, which was transported on Friday 18 July from Oceanco’s nearby hull building facility, Zwijnenburg BV.

The impressive 85.47m, 800 ton hull assembly made the short trip down the river to Oceanco whereafter her stunning Bjorn Johansson designed superstructure was placed into position and joined to the hull. The complete yacht was then carefully manoeuvred into Oceanco’s yard ready for her Terence Disdale designed interior to be installed and remaining outfitting and painting activities to be completed.

The Y705 master suite is located on the upper deck, which is totally dedicated to her owner. The suite includes ensuite his & hers bathrooms and dressings, a private full beam lounge, an office and VIP cabin, with full height windows and drop down bulwark, offering an exclusive sea view. In addition, the owner’s exterior foredeck hosts a whirlpool and sunbathing area, and on the spacious aft deck two round tables can convert into one very large oval dining table for up to 20 guests.

A second whirlpool is located on the aft bridge deck, close to the gym. Finally, on the fore sundeck a pool is surrounded by sunbathing beds and through the open arch-bar one can directly access the helipad, which when not used, accommodates a large array of sunbathing beds and chairs. This deck offers a breathtaking panoramic view.

Y705 is scheduled to be delivered in 2009.
