VIDEO: Leading Dutch Shipyard Oceanco Delivers Hotly Anticipated 117m Superyacht Infinity

Dutch shipyard Oceanco has delivered the largest yacht ever built in the Netherlands. The gargantuan 117-metre superyacht Infinity was designed with a focus on reducing noise levels and vibration when cruising.

The steel hull and active stabilisation provides those onboard with an unrivalled standard of comfort. We can only assume that five enormous levels of deck space host some of the most luxurious interiors ever seen on a superyacht. They were designed by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design and David Kleinberg Design Associates, after all.

Oceanco makes it their business to be an industry leader in terms of sustainable development and driving positive change. By building yachts that push boundaries in green technologies and efficiency, they have bold ambitions to more than halve their impact on the environment compared to the benchmark by 2030. The shipyard are aiming for 100% of their electricity usage to be supplied by renewable energy sources.

Their aim is to be 100% waste free or circular across the entire supply chain by 2030 through the careful, conscious selection or creation of new materials to be used onboard.

Collaboration between exterior designers, naval architects and interior designers gives Infinity all the hallmarks of a superyacht whose delineation and seakeeping prowess sets it apart from other vessels of a comparable size, of which there are very few; and none with the yacht-making pedigree behind the much anticipated superyacht

 She is the result of impressive teamwork from the Owner’s team, Espen Øino, Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, David Kleinberg Design Associates, Lateral Naval Architects, and all Oceanco’s co-makers and strategic partners. She represents the true power of co-makership that is central to all our projects.

There have been scant few details about the specifications of Infinity so far, apart from the spectacular exterior by legendary Norwegian-born designer Espen Øino. He’s famous for penning the exteriors of Serene, Solandge, Ocean Victory, Ester III, Kismet, Cloudbreak and Dilbar, to name a few.

We do know that superyacht Infinity features multiple living areas spread throughout the seven vast decks and there will be accomodation for 16 guests. An extensive wellness centre, spa, sauna, gym and yoga studio are some of the onboard amenities that have been confirmed.

Oceanco have been building superyachts for 25 years and Infinity is the largest vessel they have built to date. Not only is it the longest at 117 metres, but it is also one of the widest monohull yachts in the world with a massive beam of over 16 metres.

The foredeck is taken up by a helipad that can land a larger helicopter, with a second helipad on the bridge deck. She has been undergoing sea trials since February this year and has an aluminium superstructure with a steel displacement hull. At 4,978 of Gross Tonnes the vessel is capable of a respectable 18.5 knots.

It is rumoured that Infinity was built for ex-Google CEO Eric Shmidt. Although there have been no reports of the price paid for the superyacht it is believed to be worth around A$485 million and will initially be in operation in the Western Mediterranean.

Superyacht Infinity is one of only 60 motor yachts longer than 100 metres and is currently sailing under the Netherlands flag where she has mostly been spotted cruising. Oceanco recently unveiled Superyacht NFTs, a bold move aiming to increase inclusivity in the companies’ design exploits, offering unique tokens to consumers with the promise of exclusive content and engagement unlocked by the NFTs.
