Dutch yachtbuilder Oceanco has grabbed a big piece of the superyacht market in recent years with the launch of such stunning craft as 207′s 82-metre Alfa Nero and last year’s €145 million, 75.5-metre Anastasia, built for a Russian oligarch, which starred in the 2008 Monaco Boat Show. Their newest and largest creation is the 85-metre Vibrant Curiosity, extolled as the pinnacle of Oceanco’s ability to “fuse complex engineering and luxury interior craftsmanship with modern and innovative exterior styling.” Let’s home some of those oligarchs saved their rubles.
The full-displacement superyacht features a flared bow and a 14.20-metre beam with exterior and interior design by the Italian team of Nuvolari & Lenard. In addition to her godawful name Vibrant Curiosity has a sleek exterior with a sporty three-bar steel stripe and a modern interior design which can best be described as a mixture of luxury and sobriety. The yacht can reach a maximum speed of 20 knots and has a cruising range exceeding 5,500 nautical miles at 14 knots. Her accommodations include a master stateroom, one VIP suite with his & her bathrooms, five double VIP suites and two double guest cabins. Serving up the caviar is a crew of 26 which equates to every guest being waited on hand and foot.
